One Tower Bridge, London, SE1 2UP

This brand new 900 seat theatre represents the newest venue from Nicholas Hytner and Nick Starr. After an impressive tenure of 12 years at the National, the pair hopes that the Bridge Theatre will become one of the capital's beacons of new and innovative writing. The inaugural season opens in October 2017 with Rory Kinnear starring in Young Marx, a comedy about the famed thinker's early, less esteemed years.

A new drama by up and coming playwright Barney Norris, Nightfall is a bruising family drama set on a farm in Winchester. Laurie Sansom, fresh from the National Theatre Of Scotland, leads this new work, which is set on a family farm outside Winchester. Dealing with her husband's recent passing, the formidable matriarch is struggling to keep everything afloat; something that is not made any easier when her daughter's boyfriend turns up uninvited, recently flush with cash, and determined to make money off the farm's land.

Young Marx

October 18-December 31, 2017

Faced with a failing marriage and a frustrating bout of writer's block, this imaginative and affectionately irreverent portrait of the esteemed thinker takes us back to the early years of Karl Henrich Marx. Starring Rory Kinnear as the titular grandfather of communism, Richard Bean and Clive Coleman's play takes us back to 1850 where the 32-year-old is holed up in Dean Street, wasting his talent on getting wasted.

The Black Cloud

Opens January 1, 2018

Based on the novel by Fred Hoyle, a new stage adaptation by Sam Holcroft comes to London's newest theatre, described by Richard Dawkins as "one of the greatest works of science fiction ever written". The apocalyptic tale, set in 1964, follows a group of astrophysicists who become aware of an enormous cloud of gas and dust, headed for our solar system. The cloud has the potential to end all life on earth, if it blocks out the Sun's rays. The fate of the world is put in the hands of a group of scientists in a remote location in England - but will they succeed?

Julius Caesar

January 20-April 15, 2018

As Rome celebrates the return of their leader Caesar after a victory in battle, a conspiracy is growing beneath the surface. Caesar has absolute power, surely it will not be long until he begins to abuse his position. Convinced of a threat to the city, Cassius persuades the moral Brutus that something must be done. Don't miss this all-new promenade staging of Shakespeare's explosive tragedy, where honor, friendship, and patriotism are tested to violent ends for the sake of the greatest empire in history.

Alys, Always

Opens February 6, 2018

Harriet Lane's 2012 debut thriller is adapted into a new stage drama by Lucinda Coxon, premiering at London's brand-new theatre at Tower Bridge. As part of the Bridge Theatre's inaugural season directed by Nicholas Hytner, this world premiere drama in 2018 explores the dark side of London's literary scene, and the ambition that can spiral out of control. With casting yet to be confirmed, watch this space for further information.
