We've put together a stellar line-up of theatre, music, dance, free outdoor events, interactive circus, live animation, a couple of Scummy Mummies, and a terrifying Gruffalo, for adults, children and young people.
The season kicks off with Ambreen Razia’s restless new thriller POT, which delves into the lives of children adrift in the care system and at the mercy of gang culture. Ambreen was with us in 2016 with The Diary of a Hounslow Girl, which has been recently commissioned for a BBC pilot.
Inventive landscapes are built and broken apart in Dadodans’ KoKERS, part of Dance Umbrella’s 40th anniversary celebrating contemporary choreography. Plus we have an interactive circus theatre adventure with Plink and Boo, perfect for those little ones who are exploring what happens when people don’t fit into boxes.
Our theatre line-up also includes Declaration – an autobiographical comedy and conversation about mental health and ADHD. Oh, and following their sell-out UK tour, the Scummy Mummies are back with a pair if brand new castsuits in their all-new comedy show.
Our E15 Jazz Sessions return this autumn too, featuring established artists, international musicians alongside upcoming local talent. We have some free outdoor performances coming up in September, from humorous dance to energetic hip-hop.
And to top it all off, Tall Stories’ smash hit show The Gruffalo is making an appearance this Christmas! Following a monstrous West End success, the beloved classic picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler comes to life on our stage. But there’s no such thing as a Gruffalo – is there?
