Boundless Theatre has announced its brand new season of shows for the year ahead.
The season will welcome brand-new shows Addictive Beat by Dawn King and Flies by Charlie Josephine, as well as new opportunities to teenagers to co-create and socialise around the UK.
Launching the new season will be Addictive Beat, an explosive new play by award-winning writer Dawn King (The Trials, Donmar Warehouse; Foxfinder, The Ambassadors Theatre; Brave New World, UK Tour), which will run with an immersive staging at Dilston Gallery, Southwark Park Galleries from 21 September – 7 October 2022.
Hiding behind their individual musical personas, Alex – a DJ – and Robbi – a singer-songwriter – are hungrily chasing admiration and integrity. As life gets tough, and success feels further and further away, both are challenged to face their inner most demons.
Whilst playing around with a track, they make something gloriously euphoric and wickedly addictive: a beat that could change their lives forever. However, with this new promise of potential and fame, the demons come ever closer. Both are forced to ask a crushing question: what is the high they are really chasing, and is the come down worth it?
An EP with songs from the show is available now on Spotify, just search for Addictive Beat by Boundless Theatre.
Meanwhile 2023 will see Boundless Theatre and Shoreditch Town Hall co-produce the world premiere of Flies by acclaimed writer Charlie Josephine (I, Joan, Globe Theatre; Bitch Boxer, Soho Theatre, Blush, UK Tour).
The production, originally planned for October 2020 is an explosive take on the male gaze and how it continues to impact young women. Further details on the show will be announced later this year.
The company has also announced Boundless Boxes. Funded by the King’s College Civic Challenge, this new way of connecting 15–25-year-olds to culture and creative activities will welcome participants to engage creatively and interactively with Boundless Theatre’s ideas.
