About Evolution Lab: Don’t Kill Kola & In Love & Loyalty

Inspired by the reframed and reclaimed classic plays in Rachel O’Riordan’s first season as the Lyric’s Artistic Director, the Evolution Lab invites four emerging directors to collaborate with design students from Wimbledon College of Art to re-imagine classic texts. Each evening during Evolution we’ll present two of these as a double-bill to and showcase how each director’s has experimented with their original plays. Don’t Kill Kola A reimagining of Fugard’s Sizwe Banzi is Dead Directed by TD Moyo Designed by Elena Catangiu Two men.South Africa, South London. Black skin. A woman in the moonlight. Kola and Tafadzwa sitting in a tree, wishing on a dream and some money they need. In Love and Loyalty A reimagining of Sophocles’ Electra Directed by Diane Page Designed by Melissa Sallabanks-Blissett On the day of her father’s remembrance service , this is the story of one woman’s revenge against her mother, in the frame of a world where toxic masculinity sets the parameters for justice.
