Angel Theatre Company is a professional organisation dedicated to producing London fringe theatre of the highest calibre. Their aim is to create work which is entertaining, challenging, engaging and thought provoking. Although often performing in small venues, they aim to give audiences the same quality of production as a West End theatre, but for a fraction of the price! Angel Theatre Company achieves this through only casting professionally trained actors, having high production values and by working to the exacting standards of John Patterson, their Artistic Director.
As one of America’s most celebrated playwrights, Neil LaBute has enthralled audiences all over the world with his layered characters, sharp dialogue and subtle social commentaries. Autobahn comprises of seven scenes set within the confines a car, an environment from which there is no escape! Inside the car the characters are forced, no matter how reluctantly, to engage in conversation. Each vignette offers a brief insight into the world of a variety of couples, resulting in a montage of intriguing character driven playlets. From the humorous to the unsettling, Autobahn offers its audience the most intriguing of theatrical road trips!
Neil LaBute said, “Sitting in a car was where I first remember understanding how drama worked.” He added, “Hidden in the spacious backseat of a late-model American sedan, I realised quickly how deep the chasm or intensely claustrophobic it was (depending on how things were going up front) inside your average family car.”
Autobahn is directed by John Patterson and stars Henry Bauckham, Anna Bonnett, Paul Brayward, Marius Clements, Gloria Garcia, Barbara Garfath, John Hogg, Sarah Kerr, Amy McCallum, Carla McGlynn and Douglas Simon.
