Finborough announces new summer season

The season includes the European premiere of James Anthony Tyler's Dolphins and Sharks

The Finborough Arms in west London

The Finborough Theatre's new summer season will feature two UK premieres and two rare revivals.

The season will open with Just To Get Married (25 July to 19 August), the first London production of renowned suffragette Cicely Hamilton's play in over a century. Directed by Melissa Dunne, the piece asks how we can have a marriage of equals when the genders are unequal.

This runs concurrently (30 July to 15 August) with the world premiere of Continuity by Gerry Moynihan. Directed by Shane Dempsey, the play is about a dissident Irish Republican who falls in love and begins to have doubts about his commitment to The Cause.

Geoffrey Beevers will then direct John Galsworthy's comedy Windows (22 August to 9 September), in its first UK production in 85 years.

Concluding the season will be the European premiere of African-American playwright James Anthony Tyler's Dolphins and Sharks (12 to 30 September). Lydia Parker directs this comedy about the careers and ambitions of three people in a copy shop in Harlem, New York.
