The Unicorn Theatre will be reopening with a season which includes five world premieres – two of which were postponed from last year.
Justin Audibert’s latest play Marvin’s Binoculars about birdwatching and the joys of the great outdoors, which will tour London schools this summer and have a digital life online as well as a full production planned in the Unicorn’s main stage for spring 2022.
The return of the ever-popular Baby Show, and Story Seekers – an inspiring creative literacy project for primary schools produced with the National Theatre. The season also includes an exhilarating audio adventure around Southwark from theatre-makers Nigel Barrett and Louise Mari in July, and an exciting new collaboration with English National Ballet of a short dance film Let Loose directed by Unicorn Associate Artist Rachel Bagshaw and choreographed by Arielle Smith, available to stream for free online in partnership with the Guardian with further details to be announced and a sold out run of Anansi The Spider at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre.
Following the huge success of Unicorn Online which was streamed for free during lockdown, this new season will be a vibrant mix of live indoor theatre, outside work alongside cutting-edge digital performance.
Following the government guidelines, covid-secure procedures will be in place for as long as necessary.
Artistic Director, Justin Audibert said: “I am so excited to be welcoming audiences back to the Unicorn Theatre, alongside continuing our digital productions and working with extraordinary partners like Regent’s Park Theatre, National Theatre Learning, the World Wide Fund for Nature and English National Ballet to take our work into schools and to other parts of London. I am proud to present this exciting, innovative and thrilling season of shows, particularly at a time when children are in need of creative, imaginative and hopeful experiences more than ever.”
