Irish comedy at the New Diorama in September

Irish comedy, Anglo-Chinese experience and Schiller all feature

New Diorama launches its Autumn season with the English premiere of the hit Irish play Waiting For IKEA, which sold out before evening opening at the Dublin Festival a few years ago and has been seen by over 11,000 people over Ireland since.

Following this is Rick Bland’s play, Thick, which won awards Off-Broadway. It begins a three week run at New Diorama in September.

The Flying Solo Season also sees the welcome return of Footprints Under The Pavement, a theatrical guided walk around our local area. Tickets are only £6 or free if you live locally to NDT.

Other season highlights include Trestle Unmasked’s The Man With The Luggage, and three one-woman shows exploring the Anglo-Chinese experience with True Heart Theatre’s In The Mirror. Marking the anniversary of the Munich Olympic tragedy, Julia Pascal’s new play Honeypot looks at this international event through one woman’s eyes.

New Diorama bring multi-award winning Iranian company Yas-e-Tamam with their radical version of House of Bernarda Alba in November. Queen Pokou marks StoneCrabs’ first visit to NDT while, just before Christmas, well-respected actress Judith Paris appears in a new production of her play Madame Tussaud: Waxing Lyrical.

After Christmas, the faction theatre co, return to New Diorama with a seven week repertory season presenting Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, Schiller’s Mary Stuart and Strindberg’s Miss Julie.
