Ali Pidsley’s production of Antigone, adapted by Lulu Raczka, was a big hit at this address earlier this year. Here’s a chance to see an earlier piece also made with Raczka. The set-up is simple: schoolgirl Steph enlists the help of a female bartender called Bell to help find her friend Charlotte who has disappeared. But this is a complex piece of theatre that shows the influence of Caryl Churchill as it uses darkness and light to plunge the audience into uncertainty and unease in a city where violence lurks in the shadows. Atmospheric, but also a play that knows the importance of uncovering the truth.
There are blackouts. No one knows what’s causing them, but that doesn’t stop people going missing in them. Now Steph and Bell, a schoolgirl and barmaid, have to search for their missing friend, until the outside world starts infecting the theatre that stands around them… Originally supported and developed by Leeds Playhouse before transferring to the New Diorama Theatre for a sell-out run, Holy What's A Girl in School Uniform (Walks into a Bar) is a bold new play about crisis, darkness, cities and hope. A Girl in School Uniform (Walks into a Bar) comes from the team behind 2020 smash hit Antigone.
