Winner of both the Tony and Olivier Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for author Bruce Norris, the satire about prejudice and the politics of race and real estate spans decades, starting in 1959 when Russ and Bev move to the suburbs and have sold their house to the neighbourhoods first Black family. Years later, the roles are reversed when a white couple buy the house in the now predominately Black neighbourhood. This new production comes back to London following sell out runs at the Royal Court and West End.

Taking a further look back into history, Ghosts of the Titanic (9 Mar – 2 Apr) is a new play exploring conspiracy theories, cover ups and a search for the truth in the days after the fateful sinking. After the loss of her fiancé, Emma Heyer tries to uncover reasons for his death as the cries of 'fake news' and distraction tactics try to steer her away from the murky truths of those who might have benefited.

Bringing the season up to the present day, Another America (6 – 30 April) sees three friends escape the internet and the real world in the wake of an election, the consequence of which still threatens to topple Democracy as we have come to know it. Also set in America, and a finalist for the Eugene O’Neill Award, Never Not Once (9 Feb – 5 Mar) is a new drama about Eleanor, a student with the best moms in the world but a desire to find out who her father is. When her boyfriend hires a private detective to find him, secrets get uncovered and past traumas re-emerge.

Artistic Director Jez Bond said: “We’re still riding high after reopening, thrilled to be welcoming audiences through our doors and looking forward to another great variety of shows for 2022.”
