World Premiere of Edward Bond’s Dea

Sutton Theatres to host the show in May.

Edward Bond

“To be sane or not to be sane, that is the question. If not, everything that follows.”

Edward Bond’s Dea will play 24th May – 11th June 2016 at Sutton Theatres.

Drawing inspiration from Greek mythology and Jacobean tragedies, the new play by Edward Bond pictures vividly the collapse of our society.

Edward Bond is widely regarded as the UK’s greatest and most influential playwright. He is the author of some fifty plays, among them Saved (1965), the production of which was instrumental in the abolition of theatre censorship in the UK.

His other plays include The Pope’s Wedding (Royal Court Theatre, 1962), Early Morning (Royal Court, 1968), Lear (Royal Court, 1971), The Sea (Royal Court, 1973), The Fool (Royal Court, 1975), The Woman (National Theatre, 1978), Restoration (Royal Court, 1981) and The War Plays (RSC at the Barbican Pit, 1985). To this date, his plays have been produced in more than 60 countries. He has formed particular relationships with French theatre (which led to THE PARIS PENTAD) and the Birmingham Theatre Company, Big Brum, for whom he has written ten plays.

Director of Sutton Theatres Beri Juraic says: “Edward was one of the key people who supported us in saving theatres in Sutton and at the end of our first year here, we are very pleased to be presenting the world premiere of his new play. When I first read Dea, I immediately knew it is one of those rare plays which describe our society so vividly. It is that sense of urgency which is the backbone of our artistic programming.”
