It's been two years in the making but the Kiln Theatre – formerly the Tricycle – has finally opened its doors to the public, so we met with artistic director Indhu Rubasingham to find out exactly what's changed at the Kilburn theatre.

Following a capital development project, the Kiln Theatre has launched with the world premiere of Holy Sh!t by Alexis Zegerman, directed by Rubasingham.

The first season also includes a musical adaptation of Zadie Smith's novel White Teeth, adapted for the stage by Stephen Sharkey (26 October to 22 December), Ishy Din's Approaching Empty (9 January to 2 February), Florian Zeller's The Son (20 February to 13 April), Inua Ellams' The Half God of Rainfall (26 April to 17 May), Samuel Adamson's Wife (5 June to 13 July), a new revival of Sheldon Epps' Blues in the Night (22 July to 7 September) and the world premiere of Anupama Chandrasekhar's When the Crows Visit in Autumn 2019.
