Something wicked heads to Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch this autumn

The Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch has announced a major production of Macbeth and the premiere of Spare Tyre’s Love Unspoken as part of its autumn programme.

Love Unspoken, coming this October, pushes the boundaries of non-verbal theatre.

It is a visually stunning, dynamic piece exploring love and the journeys it takes. Punctuated by movements of lucidity, the show navigates love stories and poetry through dance, movement, sound and light.

This is the final production in a trilogy conceived and directed by Arti Prashar, developed in collaboration with people living with dementia from South Asian communities.

In spring 2020, the theatre will be co-producing Shakespeare’s darkest thriller, Macbeth with Derby Theatre.

This follows acclaimed collaborations on Abigail’s Party and Abi and the forthcoming revival of One Man, Two Guvnors.

Macbeth will be directed by the Queen’s Theatre’s artistic director, Douglas Rintoul, following his celebrated productions of Much Ado About Nothing and UK Tour of The Crucible.

The production will also tour to the New Wolsey Theatre Ipswich for a week with more tour dates to be announced.

The work joins the Queen’s Theatre’s recently announced produced work in its Essex Girls and Boys season of two plays, by Essex playwrights, performing alongside each other.

They are the premiere of Stiletto Beach by Sadie Hasler in September, and the Bruntwood prize-winning So Here We Are by Luke Norris.

There is a revival of Richard Bean’s hilarious smash-hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors, in October, co-produced with Derby Theatre, and The Beauty Queen of Leenane, the Tony-Award winning black comedy thriller by Martin McDonagh, co-produced with Hull Truck Theatre.
