Season 2013/14 launch

Lyceum announces Season 2013/14

From an Autumn of Crime through to a Spring of Scottish influence on major historical events The Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh unveils its ambitious 2013/14 Season.

The Royal Lyceum Theatre Company, Scotland’s largest producing theatre announces its 2013/2014 Season, which includes 4 World Premières , classics and 3 new co-producers.
Collaborations with Citizens Theatre, Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse Theatre , Chichester Festival Theatre and Wales Millenium Centre will enable audiences to enjoy the work of the Lyceum around the UK.

Mark Thomson, Artistic Director of The Lyceum comments on the season ahead:
In tough times when money is being asked to perform ever more acrobatic feats with unreasonable asks, comes the re-emergence of the challenge to the arts. In some ways the best way I can respond is to try and create a season of work that celebrates the inspiration of great thinkers, big stories and the creativity of artists. Laughter, idea, surprise, feeling, identification, revelation, beauty, celebration and wonder appear on our stage to debate our values  and make us feel more alive. We have 7 productions all happy to take up the cause with four world premières, stories from the 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st century, from pivotal moments in history to defining moments in human beings’ relationships. They are all vibrant, full of invention, intelligence and drama, desperate for a conversation with an audience and to articulate the best it can that culture and arts can give meaning and joy when the bottom line on a bank account or national debt doesn’t.
