Opening the season from 5 September to 15 October, Help! We Are Still Alive is a post apocalyptic musical comedy that will have its premiere at Seven Dials Playhouse.

Directed by Offie nominated theatre director Georgie Rankcom, straight from their blazing (The Guardian) revival of Anyone Can Whistle at Southwark Playhouse, Tim Gilvin and Imogen Palmer’s new musical comedy is about queer relationships during the impending apocalypse.

Set in the not-too distant future, the world as we know it is in ruin from a mysterious ‘fog’ that wiped out the human race. Jass and Finn might just be the last two people on earth, stuck together above a Sainsbury’s car park, raiding the tinned goods aisle for survival. Help! We Are Still Alive is a brand new musical comedy that looks at our relationships with each other and to our changing world.

Daddy Issues, a thrilling one woman play, has its world premiere from the 24 October to 19 November.

Written by Soho Writer and Offie award winner Lewis Cornay, this startling dark comedy centres around 23 year old Imi on the verge. Isolated, she finds herself slipping further and further from reality, trapped inside her mind as she tries to explain the complexities of grief, Cliff Richard and dead dogs.

As she spirals, she has to fight to remember all the reasons why she must choose to live. Daddy Issues, produced by Liam Gartland for Gartland Productions, interrogates the lengths we’ll go to forget the things that haunt us.

The season will be completed by a to-be-announced new take on a classic tale running over the festive season from 28 November to 7 January.
