Pony World Theatre Presents PARLIAMENT SQUARE

Pony World Theatre proudly announces the US Premier of James Fritz's Parliament Square. Recipient of the 2015 Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting, Parliament Square first premiered in 2017 at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester before moving to The Bush Theatre in London. This bold new play has been heralded as "raw, intense, and funny...alluring" (Broadway World UK). Parliament Square continues Pony World Theatre's traditions of bringing new work to Seattle audiences and of creating evocative performances that ask meaningful questions.

Fritz's protagonist, Kat, wakes up one morning and leaves her family to commit an act of protest that she hopes will change the world. Her action doesn't have the affect she wanted, but it certainly changes her life forever, as well as the lives of her family. She must then face the real consequences and try to piece her life back together.

This searing play asks some of the most urgent questions of our time. How can each of us create change? How far are we willing to go to cause that change? And can the ends justify the means? Raw, disturbing and compassionate, Parliament Square is an imaginative, necessary play for the times in which we live.

Parliament Square will be directed by Sann Hall, Co-Managing Partner of Pony World Theatre (Winner, 2011 Footlight Award for Design), assisted by company member Carter Rodriquez.
