Battersea Arts Centre has unveiled its autumn 2019 season.

Bertrand Lesca and Nasi Voutsas will return to the south London theatre to present One, the third part of their ongoing trilogy of shows begun by Eurohouse and Palmyra. Running from 30 September to 19 October, the piece explores the fractious nature of contemporary politics and the fight to find common ground. The pair will also mount the complete trilogy of shows on Saturday 19 October.

LUNG's Trojan Horse will make its London premiere following a run at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2018. Helen Monks and Matt Woodhead's award-winning piece, which received a five-star write-up from WhatsOnStage's Daisy Bowie-Sell, dissects the UK's terrorism prevention strategy, and the implications of such policies. The piece runs from 4 to 16 November.

Louise Orwin will present one-woman show Oh Yes Oh No, about consent, desire and power from 12 to 23 November, while Nouveau Riche will come to Battersea to present award-winning Queen of Sheba from 18 to 23 November.

Immersive video installation Now Is The Time To Say Nothing from Reem Karssli and Caroline Williams runs from 2 to 19 October, while Tom Marshman will reflect on the impact of the criminalisation of homosexuality in A Haunted Existence. Maria Ferguson will come to Battersea from 5 to 6 November with Essex Girl, about a 16 year-old girl growing up in Brentwood.
