Tricycle announces further productions for 2015

Highlights include the world premiere of John Hollingworth’s ”Multitudes”, about immigration in Bradford

Artistic director Indhu Rubasingham has announced further details of the Tricycle Theatre's 2015 season.

As well as the previously announced runs for Secret Theatre's A Series of Increasingly Impossible Acts and Sonia Jalaly's Happy Birthday Without You, Lover's Rock Monologues (2-7 February) sees Janet Kay, Carroll Thompson and Victor Romero Evans return to the Tricycle following their run in 2012.

Also returning to the Tricycle stage is ventriloquist Nina Conti with her new show from this year's Edinburgh Festival, In Your Face (9-14 February).

As the centrepiece of the new season, Rubasingham will direct the world premiere of John Hollingworth's play Multitudes (19 February-21 March), set in Hollingworth's home town of Bradford and exploring the hot topic of immigration.

Other highlights of the season include the London premiere of April de Angelis' new play After Electra, directed by Samuel West, which opens at Plymouth Theatre Royal in the new year.

And The Father will transfer to the Tricycle from Theatre Royal Bath, with Kenneth Cranham once again leading the company in Christopher Hampton's translation of Florian Zeller's award-winning play.

Completing the season, OperaUpClose will make their Tricycle debut with La traviata.

Indhu Rubasingham said: "The diversity of new work and new voices across this season is, for me, what the Tricycle is about… It's six months of work which we are very proud to present, and we look forward to sharing with audiences both in Kilburn, across London and beyond."
