Stellar line-up for Present : Tense / Thirteen

Pt_logo_newspapers_landscape

We'vegot a seriously mouth-watering selection of artists lined-up to tackle the toughest creative challenge in town in Present : Tense / Thirteen.

Two of our favourite companies plus two groups of individual collaborators are preparing to create multi-disciplinary responses to the most important news story of the moment in just seven days.

You know the score ... the artists meet tonight to decide on the hottest topic on the news agenda. They then have just one week to create a response before it is performed live at Southwark Playhouse next Sunday 22 November at 8pm. And here's who taking up the gauntlet:

DRYWRITE
One of the most inovative and exciting companies around

BOX OF TRICKS
Top notch new writing company whose current production Letting In Air is playing at The Old Red Lion (***** Whatsonstage)

PAUL JELLIS
Actor, producer, and all round creative whizz kid


SARAH SOLEMANI

Playwright, actor, comedienne and regular contributor to The New Statesman

All four will be working with a group of collaborators from different disciplines to create completely unique and thrillingly immediate work in response to the topic.

You can follow their progress over on the PT blog throughout the week, where the artists will be posting daily updates, and on Facebook and Twitter. Most importantly, you can buy tickets here.
