Autumn 2016 - A Season of Plays from North America
Ustinov Studio Autumn Season 2016
A SEASON OF PLAYS FROM NORTH AMERICA
The Ustinov Studio is enjoying an extraordinarily successful period in its history. Kenneth Cranham won the Best Actor Olivier Award 2016 for his exceptional performance in Florian Zeller'sThe Father, a production which premiered at the Ustinov Studio in October 2014. The produciton was also nominated for Best Sound Design and Best New Play. Florian Zeller's The Mother and Joshua Harmon's Bad Jews also enjoyed London runs and considerable national acclaim.
For Autumn 2016, the Ustinov Studio's Artistic Director, Laurence Boswell, returns to North America for his inspiration, following a season of French-Canadian Drama and three previous American Seasons.
Nancy Meckler will direct Canadian John Mighton's poignant comedy, HALF LIFE, about an octogenarian love affair, and Laurence Boswell himself will direct the eminent actors Tanya Moodie and Joseph Marcell in TROUBLE IN MIND by the pioneering African-American dramatist Alice Childress.
