Memories are made of this. Jermyn Street Theatre marks 25 years with sterling season

This autumn Jermyn Street Theatre presents a glittering season of work that celebrates the achievements of the West End studio venue over the past quarter of a century.

The Memories Season reflects the wide-range of high quality work that the theatre has become known for since its creation in 1994.

Each of the productions takes the idea of memory as a central theme, each, in their very different ways, exploring situations in which influences of the past play a central role in events of the present.

The season comprises a revival of Somerset Maugham’s For Services Rendered, the world premiere of Ice Cream Boys by Gail Louw, artistic director Tom Littler’s production of Shakespeare’s All’s Well That Ends Well and the London premiere of the acclaimed Watermill Theatre’s production of One Million Plays About Britain by Craig Taylor.

Jermyn Street Theatre’s Tom Littler said: “Since Penny Horner and Howard Jameson created Jermyn Street Theatre 25 years ago, with the support of hundreds of volunteers, playwrights, directors, designers, stage managers and actors, they have achieved the impossible: a tiny theatre, without government funding, running in the West End.

“From September to January, we celebrate their achievement with the Memories Season. All four of this autumn’s plays are about the power of memories.

“From the long shadow of the First World War stretching across the manicured lawns of For Services Rendered, to the burning rage and secrecy that fires The Ice Cream Boys.

“The diaries, letters and lost LPs that make up my production of All’s Well That Ends Well and the scraps of overheard conversations that provide the dialogue for One Million Tiny Plays – this season celebrates memories: moving, absurd, and hilarious”.
