With the critically acclaimed Reasons You Should(n’t) Love Me by Amy Trigg currently playing at the theate, and rehearsals underway for Ayad Akhtar’s The Invisible Hand, Artistic Director Indhu Rubasingham announces that the forthcoming NW Trilogy by Moira Buffini, Suhayla El-Bushra and Roy Williams will open on 14 September, with previews from 6 September, and running until 9 October. The trilogy, directed by Kiln Theatre Associate Directors Taio Lawson and Susie McKenna, is now on sale.
Artistic Director of Kiln Theatre, Indhu Rubasingham, said today, “Originally I set out to create a production which would celebrate the real people of our borough as part of Brent Borough of Culture 2020. Although we weren’t able to produce it last year, we haven’t stopped working on NW Trilogy and in 2021 it feels like these plays are even more relevant. They put our community centre stage and celebrate their remarkable achievements. Although the stories we’re telling are from over 30 years ago, their impact lives on and is ever present on the streets of Brent. It’s also not just about North West London, NW Trilogy is a show for anyone who values the vibrancy, energy and resilience of Britain – a country of many voices, cultures and histories.”
Tickets are initially available with social distancing in place which will be reviewed as the government guidelines change. This production will be performed in line with all official government guidelines in place for September and October 2021, and may end up not socially distanced.
Building on the success and resonance of their Kiln Community Appeal which raised over £100,000 to support local initiatives, Kiln Theatre today launches the NW Trilogy Fundraising Appeal. With a target of £25,000, all funds raised will go towards putting these Brent stories on stage, showcasing the vibrancy, activism and brilliance of the borough.
