And Then Come The Nightjars

This poignant and uncompromising play is one of the two winners of Theatre503’s inaugural international Playwriting Award and was selected from over 1600 submissions.

And Then Come The Nightjars charts a farm’s struggle to survive the march of history. Fierce with rage yet achingly tender, this is a story of enduring friendship and a requiem for rural England. Reflecting on the Foot and Mouth epidemic of 2001, Nightjars sees how, ten years on, scars are still evident on the landscape and also on the relationships of those the disease affected.

This heart-wrenching play explores the devastating effects of the pandemic which saw the slaughter of four million animals, the virtual closure of the countryside and the postponement of a general election. Against this backdrop Bea Roberts depicts an intimate friendship between two world-weary men.

Date: 2-26 September 2015 (7.45pm & Sundays 5pm)
Tickets: £15/£12
Venue: Theatre 503, 503 Battersea Park Road, London SW11 3BW

Sense of an Ending

The world premiere of award-winning playwright Ken Urban’s Sense of an Ending, directed by Jonathan O’Boyle, marks the 21st anniversary of the Rwandan genocide. This compelling political thriller asks if forgiveness is possible in a situation where truth is never simple.

Charles, a New York Times journalist, arrives in Rwanda for an exclusive interview with two Hutu nuns. Charged with war crimes during the 1994 genocide, the nuns must convince the world of their innocence or face a lifetime in prison. When an unknown survivor contradicts their story, Charles must choose which version of the truth to believe.

Urban's Sense of an Ending shines a light on journalistic truth and morality amid the atrocity of the Rwandan genocide. This is the first of Urban’s plays to be presented in Europe; the script won the Best New Play award at the prestigious Williamstown Theatre Festival.

Producer, Jessica Campbell comments, Ken's compelling script explores so many questions: how can a journalist balance his loyalty to the people he meets and his duty to report the truth? How can a nation ever heal after such devastating loss of life? We're excited - if somewhat daunted - to be exploring these questions in this world premiere. With an all-black cast, this shockingly powerful piece of writing, based on a true story, is a must-see at Theatre503.

Date: 12 May - 6 June 2015 (Tue-Sat 7.45pm & Sun 5pm)
Tickets: £15 (£12 concs) Box Office Tel No.

77-year-old Norma is having a tricky day. She can’t finish the crossword and Joy keeps stealing her recliner. Not to mention Helen next door has twisted her ankle falling from a weather balloon, they’ve run out of Class A drugs and the Utility Inspector just popped round to see if it’s time for her involuntary euthanasia...

Animals is a wicked satire set in a world where everyone over 60 is tossed on the scrapheap, children are hothoused, and being a “burden on society” is the ultimate crime.

Yorkshire-based Emma Adams has been New Writer in Residence at West Yorkshire Playhouse and has also written for Slung Low, Red Ladder, Look Left Look Right and Ovalhouse. Lisa Cagnacci is Associate Artistic Director of Theatre503.

Cinderella and the Beanstalk

Cinderella and the Beanstalk: A festive treat for those who like their Christmas pantos with a twist.

Josh, John and James have written a pantomime. It's a riotous adventure with a whole host of exciting characters. They have fashioned the props, hired the costumes, booked the venue and rigged the lights; the stage is set. But on arriving at the theatre they realise they have forgotten one vital component: a cast.

A glorious cocktail of your favourite pantomimes! Follow Cinderella on a perilous adventure as the scheming Rumple Stiltskin blackmails the would-be princess into retrieving the coveted golden eggs from the top of the beanstalk.

Cinderella must complete her quest in order to recover her glass slipper, but with Prince Charming, the Fairy Godmother and Jack's pregnant cow all doing their best to get in the way, these delicious, oversized eggs may not be so easily sought out…

Sleeping Trees are an award-winning comedy trio. This world premiere blends the classic elements of a well-loved pantomime with an astonishing range of fast, physical and bare-knuckled comedy.

Join these three performers as they recreate every character you’d expect to find in a Pantomime, as well as some you might not… whilst still doing their best to sing, dance and fight their way through ninety minutes of panto pandemonium.

The show will be directed by award winning Tom Attenborough. He has previously worked with venues such as the Chichester Festival Theatre, the Almeida Theatre and in London’s West End. In 2010, he established his own production company, Rhapsody of Words. In 2012 he was made an Associate Artist of HighTide Festival Theatre.
