This Week at NYT | Our Southwark Season is about to kick off

Posted 29 Jul 2023 by Joe Duggan

Our spring season at Southwark Playhouse is finally upon us...

The Fall opens this weekend 

This weekend sees the first preview of James Fritz’s The Fall, directed by Matt Harrison, at Southwark Playhouse. 

This week our Royal Patron HRH The Earl of Wessex came along to a dress rehearsal at Holloway Road, and met the casts of both The Fall and DNA.

Want to find out a little more about the play? Have a read of this interview with writer and NYT Alumnus James Fritz 

“It interrogates their relationship to old people now, it interrogates what their relationship might be to their parents when they reach an old age, and it interrogates where they might end up as a society and individuals when they reach old age themselves”
