London's Royal Court to Present The Get Out, a Revue of New Writing
10 Jul 2014
The Get Out, a late revue style show of new writing, will be presented at the Jerwood Upstairs Theatre at London's Royal Court, beginning performances July 31 for a run through Aug. 2 only.
Conceived by writers Robin French and Anthony Neilson, they will spend a week working with a company of six actors to create a night of stories, sketches, short plays, theatre, satire and slightly off-kilter comedy. Submissions are open to anyone who has worked at the Royal Court Theatre in any capacity whether having had a main house play staged or working in the kitchen.
In a press statement, Neilson commented, "There is no restrictions on form or content. Anything is acceptable in any medium – songs, monologues, puppetry – if it can be performed on stage, we’ll consider it for inclusion. Our aim is to create a revue show that is unique in tone, innovative in form and reflective of the Royal Court Theatre."
Tail! Spin! is the hysterical new comedy drawn verbatim from the leaked e-mails, raunchy texts and tell-tale tweets that brought down politicians Anthony Weiner, Mark Sanford, Larry Craig and Mark Foley. With SNL Alum Rachel Dratch! Only $55!
