22 – 31 May, LAMDA is in residency at the Pleasance Theatre, Islington, with three gripping, modern plays.

Wild Turkey by Joe Penhall
LAMDA (London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art)

Ben works for Stu flipping burgers in a south London take-away. Danny is Mr Fix-It – or so they think. When a stranger turns up out of the blue, assumptions around their relationships are called into question.

The out-of-hours and unseen side of the London restaurant trade is brought into sharp focus in Joe Penhall’s masterful Wild Turkey. An award-winning writer, Penhall was described by The Financial Times as “one of the finest playwrights of his generation”.

Please note that this production contains strong language and scenes of an adult nature.

Spring and Port Wine by Bill Naughton
LAMDA (London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art)

The generations clash in Bill Naughton’s domestic comedy as the respectable, upstanding Crompton family steadily falls apart over the question of an uneaten herring.

Against the backdrop of 1960’s industrial Bolton, wilful daughter, Hilda, denies her conservative father’s authority and brings the whole philosophy of post war living into question.

Festen by David Eldridge
LAMDA (London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art)

Proud father, Helge, invites his children home to celebrate his 60th birthday. When his son, Christian, comes to make his toast however, the veneer of familial success is shattered.

In this disturbing family drama, skilfully adapted for the stage from Thomas Vinterberg’s 1998 film, the dangers of complicity and wilful ignorance are explored.
