Our “judges and lawyers” production of Judgment at Nuremberg – first at the Tricycle Theatre in 2011 and then at the Bridewell Theatre last March – raised over £50,000 for charitable causes. Sally Knyvette, our professional director, worked tirelessly to knock us into shape. Sally’s latest venture is a near month long run of new play by Alan Franks at Theatre503 in Battersea (a renowned “Off West End” venue specialising in groundbreaking plays and new writing). I am delighted to have had the opportunity to support Sally, Alan and their talented young cast by sponsoring the performance on Wednesday 29 January.
A World Elsewhere, Theatre503, 22 January to 15 February 2014. Click here to read about the production on the Theatre503 website.
“Former Times journalist, playwright and author of the recently acclaimed novel The Notes of Doctor Newgate, Alan Franks, will premiere his new play A WORLD ELSEWHERE at Battersea’s Theatre503. Set in an Oxford College in 1968, where Alan once studied alongside former US President Bill Clinton, A WORLD ELSEWHERE is a searing examination of the world on the brink of yet another war and the institutional politics of one of England’s oldest universities. The production is directed by Sally Knyvette, director of the acclaimed Judgement at Nuremberg at the Tricycle Theatre, and will run from Wednesday 22 January 2014.”
