2014 lineup announced for our flagship festival of new and unusual theatre
This year, we’re delighted to be welcoming superstars of the indie theatre scene Kindle, with two new shows; the premiere of UNPACK by Shunt and Rotozaza veteran Glen Neath in collaboration with Neil Bennun; Daniel Bye, with the London premiere of his Edinburgh Fringe smash How to Occupy an Oil Rig; two short shows from Tim Crouch sidekick Andy Smith; and many more. There are also CPT debuts from first-timers including PinchVanish, Mingbeast, The Same But Different and others.
We’ve also got performances of this year’s Spring Festivals Co-Commission, My Son and Heir, “an anarchic celebration of the everyday heroism of parenthood” from Bristol-based Search Party. We have an action-packed one-off night dedicated to intimate performance. And we end the festival with a day of hot-off-the-press showings by participants on our Starting Blocks 2014 artist development scheme.
Oh, and then there’s CPT@20, an all-new, year-long strand of work marking our twentieth (twentieth!) birthday. The celebrations are launched at Sprint, with a Party Like It’s 1994 knees-up, and the first shows in our Passing the Baton series – which sees great artists from our past select new and emerging artists to make work at CPT.
You can check out the full line up here. There’s lots going on. It’ll be extraordinary. We hope you’ll join us.
