Unicorn Theatre announces shows for new 2022/23 season


The Unicorn Theatre has announced a new season of shows from September 2022 to February 2023.

The upcoming season includes new digital production Greek Myths Unplugged, a trio of adaptations of classic Greek Myths reimagined by some of the most exciting writers and spoken word artists.


The Unicorn’s Associate Director Rachel Bagshaw will direct the series, made up of Narcissus adapted by E.V. Crowe, King Midas & His Golden Touch adapted by Vanessa Kisuule and Theseus & the Minotaur adapted by Alexandra Wood.

As part of Unicorn Online, the films will be available for free to schools and families.

Meanwhile Christmas will welcome two shows: Pinocchio (6 November – 31 December) adapted by Eve Leigh for ages 7+ and Christmas in the Sunshine (17 November – 31 December) by Yasmin Joseph for those ages 3-6.

Finally the season will see a return of Baby Show (4 – 30 October) and Anansi the Spider (20 January – 26 February). They will be joined by the venue’s digital series Anansi the Spider: Re-Spun which will return to stream online between 5 September and 31 December.

Artistic Director Justin Audibert said: “I’m thrilled to announce our 2022 – 23 autumn and spring season and to be able to share these extraordinary, creative and imaginative theatre experiences with children. As part of our new Engagement Programme we’re committed to putting children’s voices at the heart of what we do. We’re working with schools from across our local boroughs, and young people in the community to develop our work, and their input and influence can be seen across our season.

“This season sees the return of two of the Unicorn’s hits, Anansi the Spider and Baby Show, and three new productions. We’re kicking off with a new digital production of three reimagined Greek classics which I’m committed to making available for free to schools and families across the country. This Christmas, there’s a fantastic new production of the classic story of Pinocchio while for younger audience members we’ll be bringing a little taste of the Caribbean to the Unicorn with Christmas in the Sunshine.”
