Building on his hugely successful spring season, Boswell has announced another top notch programme, all UK premieres, which kicks off with Julian Mitchell’s The Welsh Boy, billed as a ‘lusty 18th century tale of youthful passion’. Set in Ross-on-Wye and Bath, the play brings to the stage a hidden gem of eighteenth-century literature, itself based on a true story of passionate love and scandal in a sleepy provincial town.
The second play, deadkidsongs, is an adaptation of the critically acclaimed contemporary novel by Toby Litt. A black comedy, which received rave reviews when it was first published in 2001, is now brought to the stage for the first time ever in a fast-paced, macabre, highly imaginative piece of theatre.
Finally, Dostoevsky's classic novella, The Double, about the nightmare of meeting your own badly-behaved double, is directed by Laurence Boswell, and promises to be filled with special effects and accompanied by nineteenth century music and dance.
Tickets go on general sale from 9 July.
