Overview

Drawing on the traditions of a classic ghost story, Kings Head Theatre’s artistic director Mark Ravenhill prepares to share the story of London’s oldest pub theatre. But there are other stories and other memories hidden in the space. Echoes of a trauma from the past are pushing to manifest on stage.

Written as a response to the 50th anniversary celebration of the King’s Head Theatre, The Haunting of Susan A explores the power of the mind to make the unseen visible and for the cruelty of the past to haunt a room.

But there are other stories and other memories hidden in the space. Echoes of a trauma from the past are pushing to manifest on stage.

Engrained within the fabric of North London’s creative culture for over 50 years, The Haunting of Susan A is a site responsive piece that invites you to become a part of local history. Gather round, let us share our story…

One of the most produced playwrights of the 21st Century Mark Ravenhill shot to popularity with Shopping & F*cking (1996). Recent work includes The Cane starring Nicola Walker and his collaboration with David Walliams and Robbie Williams on the musical The Boy in The Dress. Now he tells the tale of the fabled theatre; the many lives that have passed through.
