Croydonites Festival of New Theatre
Croydonites is back! Four weekends of adventurous, bold and intriguing performance to help you ease into summer. Twelve companies, make up the third edition of Croydonites Festival of New Theatre, featuring no less than seven local productions.
The third edition of Croydonites Festival of New Theatre will present works over four weeks between 27th April and 20th May 2018, continuing its mission to bring new performance work to Croydon and provide a platform for local artists, with seven of the twelve based in the borough.
Get ready to be thrilled, soothed and made over. Get cosy with some late night radio, and spar with wolves. Take a thrilling ride round the streets of Croydon, or find a better more beautiful you. Get ready for the surreal, the singular and the sincere. Feel included, feel left out and see Croydon through the eyes of a Hollywood lens. Then rise like a phoenix and soar to the tunes of a master. All in Croydon.
Croydonites is spreading its theatrical wings in 2018 and heading to new territory. From personal memoir to pop-up opera, parody to pathos and immersive to intimate, it’s welcoming new genres of performance to its programme from UK and Croydon based artists. Featuring four premieres and a film commissioned by Croydonites (and made on location here), the festival showcases fantastic British theatre and performance, with seven local artists leading the way.
