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."
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
