Omnibus Theatre – a multi-award-winning independent theatre in Clapham, South London – has released its schedule for the Autumn Season 2019, featuring dozens of exceptional new plays and performances.

The new Autumn Winter season at Omnibus Theatre sees nine productions featuring new writing, four of which are returning companies. We welcome three touring shows, a programme of Irish work which includes a revival by one of Ireleand’s greatest playwrights, the fifth annual instalment of Perception Festival celebrating Nasty Women, and a Winter production, directed by Omnibus Theatre’s Artistic Director Marie McCarthy. The season also sees Omnibus Theatre producing the national tour of an award-winning play.

Community conversations

Commenting on the new season, artistic director Marie McCarthy said;

“This Autumn, we continue to champion stories untapped and unheard, made by brilliant theatre makers both new and returning to Omnibus Theatre. I’m a huge fan of HighTide, Fireraisers and China Plate and I’m so pleased to welcome them to Omnibus Theatre for the first time. I’m also delighted that Futures Theatre, The Cocoa Butter Club, Strange Fish, Little Angel Theatre and Nouveau Riché are returning to us.

All of these artists and their productions tap in to the conversations we’re having as an organisation and a community; Who are we? What do we identify with? Which voices do we need to hear more of?”

After watching Katy Arnstein’s stunning show, ‘Sexy Lamp’ (read our review here online), at the Omnibus Theatre this summer, Nothing in the Rulebook’s Professor Wu said of the theatre:

“There are so many stunning new voices, artists and creatives waiting to be discovered right now – each with beautiful and important things to say. And this is why it’s so important that places like the Omnibus Theatre exist; to provide a platform for new writing and interdisciplinary work, giving a voice to the underrepresented and challenging perceptions. And all in a great location, a fabulous theatre with affordable tickets (and, perhaps most importantly of all for discerning audience members – a reasonably priced bar!)”
