Orange Tree Theatre 2020 recovery season four shows

Orange Tree Theatre has revealed further shows for its recovery season.

As the venue prepares for its 50th Anniversary Year from 31 December 2021, Artistic Director Paul Miller and Executive Director Hanna Streeter have announced further programming until August 2022.


The season opens with the world premiere of Sonali Bhattacharyya’s Two Billion Beats (5 February – 5 March) directed by Nimmo Ismail, followed by Franz Xaver Kroetz’s Tom Fool (12 March – 16 April) directed by Diyan Zora.

Oscar Toeman directs the UK première of Pamela Carter’s The Misfortune of the English (25 April – 28 May) and completing the season, Miller directs the first major revival of Martin Crimp’s translation of The False Servant (8 June – 23 July) by Pierre Marivaux.

All of the productions will be available to watch online with the continuation of OT On Screen.

Meanwhile the OT Community programme continues with groups coming together in August 2022 for performances in a Community Festival.

Paul Miller said: “The next stage of our Recovery Season sees a classic OT mix of new plays, emerging artists, internationalism, a European classic and a new Community Festival.

“We are all reconnecting with society and seeing the world from new perspectives, and in our 50th anniversary year, this season at the OT aims to further this process, as we continue to reconnect with our audiences and the artists who make theatre happen. The great Recovery continues!”

Also as part of the 50th Anniversary, the Museum of Richmond will host an exhibition OT:50 50 Years of the Orange Tree which opens on 15 December 2021 and runs until 31 August 2022.
