KDC Season Launch on Tuesday 3 May – Meet the Directors

This summer KDC invites you to audition for You, Me, and Noor, KDC Theatre’s annual new writing competition and show.

Each year we set a brand new brief, and invite writers to submit new short plays. The winning entries are honed into a one-of-a-kind intertwined production, with a group of actors, directors and writers collaborating to bring the theme to life. This year we’re excited to present our re-vamped version of our Full Stack production.

Want to learn more? Come along to KDC’s Season Launch at Theatre Deli Bar, 7pm Tuesday 3 May.

Autumn auditions

Massive congratulations to the Pomona team for their run last week, and getting their corona-delayed production finally in front of live audiences. A big achievement all round.

But the wheel doesn’t stop turning here at KDC towers! It’s time to announce our autumn season shows, and your chance to get involved either by auditioning to act or backstage.

Autumn Season shows

First up, we have action-packed blood-soaked Shakespeare in Titus Andronicus. It’ll be a modern adaptation, exploring the dangers of revenge and how it can twist the intentions of everyone it touches.

Our second show will be Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons, about censorship and free speech in a world where people are limited to 140 words per day.

Auditions are free and open to all, and will be held 20 & 21 September in the evening. You only need to come to one audition and you can audition for both plays on the same evening.

Recalls take place on the evening of 23 September.

Attend whichever date suits you best, and you can audition for all 3 plays on the same evening.

Join us at the season launch party on 10 January at the Hoop & Grapes pub in Farringdon to hear from the directors and about all they ways you can get involved. Cast auditions will be the following week.

Maybe Radio

19-23 March. Directed by Anna Markland

Moscow’s number hit music station is launching their annual phone-in charity fundraiser … or at least they would be, if their biggest rivals hadn’t already stolen their theme. Join the DJs and station management as they try to save the day whilst dealing with endangered animals, suspicious pies, the Russian navy, office romance and of course – the best musical acts. After all, this is – Maybe Radio.

Hand to God

26-30 March. Directed by Duncan Moore

All hell breaks loose in a small Texan town in this blood-dark comedy. Recently widowed Margery runs a Christian Puppet Ministry at the local church. Soon Jason, her son, discovers that his puppet’s gone rogue and has taken on a shocking personality all of its own. This lightning-paced comedy tackles the big themes of death, grief, depression, guilt and religious hypocrisy, with a little help from one foul-mouthed puppet.

Hush Now

2-6 April. Directed by Danielle Florence & Carl Fletcher

Hush Now is a semi-devised piece utilising physical theatre and puppetry to tell the story of a family fractured by grief. The play centres around a teenager haunted by his own guilt. He navigates the world in a new way since his father was taken from him, but as the pain he feels festers and grows, so does the monster that begins to torment him…

Auditions 14, 15, 16 January!
