Talk by Indhu Rubasingham

P-P chairman John Morrison writes:

"Our guest on Monday 2 November is a rising star in London theatre, Indhu Rubasingham, artistic director of the Tricycle theatre in Kilburn since 2012. She took over from Nicolas Kent who had run the theatre for 28 years, specialising in verbatim plays.  Indhu's bold international choices in new writing reflect her long career as a freelance director in a wide variety of theatres, beginning at Nottingham Playhouse and taking in Chichester, Birmingham and Hampstead. Her current production at the Tricycle is The Wolf In Snakeskin Shoes, a loose adaptation of Moliere's Tartuffe by American playwright Marcus Gardley.  The Tricycle has one production running in the West End -- The Father by Florian Zeller at Wyndham's -- and another on the way at the Garrick in January as part of the Kenneth Branagh season.  This will be a revival of her first show at the Tricycle, Red Velvet, starring Adrian Lester as the pioneering black American actor Ira Aldridge.
She's also directed The Motherfucker With The Hat at the National Theatre.  You can read an interview with Indhu from The Independent here".

After the break we have CANCER RESEARCH, a short Halloweeny play by Our Man in Hollywood: Napoleon Ryan.

7.30 at the North London Tavern.
