Seven Dials Playhouse: What’s On


Seven Dials Playhouse

Following a major overhaul, the Tristan Bates Theatre has reopened as the Seven Dials Playhouse in 2022.

Seven Dials Playhouse launched in early 2022 with the European Premiere of Steve, by Mark Gerrard, directed by Andrew Keates and starring David Ames and Jenna Russell.

Accompanying each production at Seven Dials Playhouse will be a bespoke programme of events that respond directly to the show in the Main House.

Diary of a Somebody

22 March – 30 April 2022

The year is 1966. A shabby bedsit in Angel. Joe Orton, who lives with his lover Kenneth Halliwell, is becoming the most successful young playwright in Britain. His West End hit Loot is voted Play of the Year. His work is adapted for TV. The Beatles demand that he write their new movie.

In 8 months he’ll be brutally murdered by the person closest to him.

Taken verbatim from Joe Orton’s private and sexually explicit diaries, staged for the first time in 35 years in a raucous and poignant new production by Nico Rao Pimparé, Diary of a Somebody is a deep dive into the mind of one of the most witty, rebellious and acclaimed artists of his generation.

Foxes

3 May – 11 June

Disrupting beliefs and morals, and tearing the foundations of family apart, Foxes explores the complexities of sexual identity and the impact unleashing your true self can have on those around you.

What is the ultimate sacrifice when societal pressures of religious doctrine and male standards collide with a liberal lifestyle? This fierce debut, shortlisted for the Alfred Fagen Award, shines a light on queerness within London’s Caribbean Community. When one kiss has the power to destroy everything, one young black man struggles to keep up. Drawn from experiences close to home, Flanders’ portrait of tormented masculinity and homosexuality is a detailed exploration into the cultural clash between upbringing and identity.
