Let's talk about sex: in rehearsals with La Ronde

Max Gill’s updated version of Arthur Schnitzler’s 1897 piece will see a cast of four play ten characters

We sat down with Lauren Samuels, Amanda Wilkin, Alexander Vlahos, Leemore Marrett Jr and director Max Gill to find out more about La Ronde, opening at The Bunker on 13 February.

Gill's new gender-neutral version sets the 1897 play in in south London in 2017. La Ronde looks at sexual morals through the story of pairs of characters in all sections of society and was originally set in Vienna.

A cast of four play ten characters and each night it is decided anew which actor will play which role in each scene by the turning of a big wheel called La Ronde. In Collaborative Artists' production there's the potential for over 3000 different variations of the show.

The show opens the second season in The Bunker, a new venue situated near London Bridge.

La Ronde opens 13 February and runs until 11 March with previews from 11 February.
