Jodie Jacobs to Appear in LONDON OMNIBUS, Sept 10-14; DOCTOR WHO's Robert Shearman Among Featured Playwrights
Next week, This Stage Limited is premiering London Omnibus, a programme of four new plays by London-based writers inspired by journeys through London. The show marks a return to writing for the stage for award-winning theatre, television and fiction writer Robert Shearman, who is perhaps best known for his work on the television show Doctor Who.
Each of the four London Omnibus writers - Christina Barrett-Jones, Gus Gowland, Katherine Manners and Robert Shearman - was assigned a London bus line. He or she then travelled on that bus before writing a short play prompted by some aspect of the journey. Asia Osborne and Jeremy Lloyd Thomas are directing the resulting plays.
London Omnibus has a company of six actors: Sharon Ballard, Dani Copperstone, Rebecca Eastham, Jodie Jacobs, James Law and Lekan Lawal. Each is performing in at least two of the pieces.
Workshop performances at RADA Studios at 7:30 p.m. on 10, 11 and 12 September 2014 and at 3:00 p.m. on 12 September 2014 will be followed by a gala presentation at the London Transport Museum at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday 14 September 2014. Tickets for the workshop performances cost £15 each (£11 for concessions) and tickets for the gala (which include entry to the museum earlier in the day) cost £32. Tickets can be booked at www.thisstage.co.uk/LondonOmnibus/booking.html.
