St John's Night

St John's Night at the Jermyn Street Theatre

St Johns Night, Jermyn Street TheatreUKTW is proud to support the UK premiere of Henrik Ibsen's St John's Night which opens this week at Jermyn Street Theatre.

Loosely based on A Midsummer Night's Dream, St John's Night is an enchanting tale of mischievous goblins, mismatched lovers and secret inheritances. Directed by Anthony Biggs, who won rave reviews for his production of Ibsen's Little Eyolf last year ("Anthony Biggs directs a tense, claustrophobic production ... Imogen Stubbs' performance almost blows the roof off the theatre"  ****Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph) this represents a step up in the award winning theatre’s growing reputation for rediscovering and producing lost works by the world’s greatest playwrights.

UKTW Editorial ImageJermyn Street Theatre has recently won Fringe Theatre of the Year in The Stage 100 Awards and this premiere comes hot on the heels of the critically acclaimed production of Charles Dyer’s 1971 work Mother Adam, another unjustifiably rarely performed play.

Increasingly in the ascendance under the stewardship of Gene David Kirk, Jermyn Street Theatre is considered to be one of the most exciting venues of its size in the UK. With a commitment to presenting both little performed European and American classics and vibrant new plays and musicals, the theatre has also won recent acclaim with its productions of The River Line by Charles Morgan, The Two-Character Play by Tennessee Williams and The Art of Concealment about the celebrated playwright Terence Rattigan. In 2011 Jermyn Street Theatre was nominated for the Peter Brook Empty Space Award.

In what is seen as a theatrical coup, the theatre has also recently announced the never seen before stage production of All That Fall by Samuel Beckett, directed by Trevor Nunn and starring Eileen Atkins and Michael Gambon which opens this Autumn.

UKTW has long been a supporter of the Jermyn Street Theatre and the work of its Artistic Director Gene David Kirk.
