Current & Future Productions

2011-12 Season

Islington Community Theatre exists to make brave, innovative theatre.

Our work throughout 2012 is inspired by the idea of time.  By what came before and what comes next.  By heritage, legacy and the thought that this year, this week, this second could define our lives forever.

Our work this year includes In All the Minutes Ever, a new piece created by 30 young people about time and memory, Before Now Next, an ambitious play created in just 25 hours, and What Will Survive of Us, five new short plays by five incredibly exciting emerging playwrights.

We're also working on a new full-length commission and various other projects - keep your eyes peeled here and on our mailing list for more information.

Listeners 


Listeners is the name of our ongoing exploration of interactive and game-based theatre.  A simple game involving scores of lost 'Listeners' and an audience desperate to track them down.

Listeners started at the Pleasance Theatre's Big Day Out in July 2010 with a full-on interactive game involving 30 escaped medical test centre patients and an audience of 200 'spotters'.

It moved to the Platform Festival in July 2011, when 15 young people from the adjacent Andover Estate were given a crash course in interactive theatre by the directors Terry O'Donovan, Tas Emiabata and Casey Middaugh. There, the audience went hunting throughout the new building looking for lost listeners.

The last sighting of the Listeners was at the Nag's Head Christmas Festival in December 2012.
