The Door - Park Theatre
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
FOLLOWING their Best New Play Award shortlisting at this year’s Brighton Fringe, innovative new theatre company, 8fold theatre, are presenting The Door at London’s newest theatre – the Park Theatre, Finsbury Park – from November 12 to December 1, 2013.
Inspired by writer Cherise Cross’s own battle with insomnia, The Door is described as a dark, psychological drama that takes the audience on an unnerving journey into the surreal world of sleep deprivation.
As John stumbles ever further into a maze of questions and confusion, audiences are asked to consider why this is happening and how he will escape it. Could the answer be hidden within his own mind?
Amy Draper directs a cast that includes Philip Nightingale, Adèle Keating, James Naylor, Robert Bradley and Stephanie Lodge.
The Door is the latest production from London’s 8fold theatre, a company rapidly developing a reputation for thought-provoking work and immersive theatre that delves into the machinations of the psyche. Other current productions include The Arrangement and The Portrait – completing a trilogy of productions which explore the dark secrets behind the façade of the seemingly obvious.
The Door has set design by Ele Slade, costumes by Clare Amos, lighting by Daniel Hutchinson and sound by Neil McKeown.
Tickets: £19.50, £16 concessions, £12 Tuesdays for London N4 residents and under 25’s. Tickets are available from the box office on 0207 870 6876 or online at parktheatre.co.uk/.
