What's On Highlights

White Noise
From:05-10-2021
To:13-11-2021
+ More Info +

Thirty-somethings Leo, Misha, Ralph and Dawn have been inseparable since college.

Making their way together in the big city, they are liberal, open-minded and socially aware. Misha is producing the hit online show ‘Ask A Black’; Ralph is waiting for tenure at his university, and as a lawyer, Dawn spends her days fighting for social justice. Leo would be a talented visual artist – if only he could sleep. As best friends and lovers, confident in their woke-ness, their connection with each other is stronger than anything else – until, that is, Leo is assaulted by the police in a racially motivated incident. Shaken to the core, he brings to the group an extreme proposition.

Written by Suzan-Lori Parks, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, White Noise takes an unflinching look at race in the 21st century from both a black and white perspective. After an acclaimed world premiere at the Public Theater in New York, it has its European premiere at The Bridge, directed by Polly Findlay.

The Book of Dust - La Belle Sauvage
From:02-12-2021
To:19-02-2022
+ More Info +

Philip Pullman sets The Book of Dust – La Belle Sauvage twelve years before his epic His Dark Materials trilogy.

Two young people and their dæmons, with everything at stake, find themselves at the centre of a terrifying manhunt. In their care is a tiny child called Lyra Belacqua, and in that child lies the fate of the future. And as the waters rise around them, powerful adversaries conspire for mastery of Dust: salvation to some, the source of infinite corruption to others.

Eighteen years after his ground breaking production of His Dark Materials at the National Theatre, Nicholas Hytner returns to Pullman’s parallel universe to direct a gripping adaptation by Bryony Lavery.

Founded by Nicholas Hytner and Nick Starr on leaving the National Theatre after 12 years, and now Co-Directed by them and Tim Levy, The Bridge focuses on the commissioning and production of new shows, as well as staging the occasional classic.

The 900-seat adaptable auditorium is designed to answer the needs of contemporary audiences and theatre-makers and is capable of responding to shows with different formats (end-stage, thrust-stage and promenade). It is the first wholly new theatre of scale to be added to London’s commercial theatre sector in 80 years. The Bridge was designed by Steve Tompkins and Roger Watts of Haworth Tompkins Architects (winner of the 2014 Stirling Prize).
