The Lyceum launches Season 2014/15!

The Lyceum announces its 2014/15 season with a delicious blend of new works and contemporary and modern classics including 2 world premieres. From a Scottish autumn through to a European spring the season brings both riotous comedies and big, emotional society plays alongside new writing and new versions of well loved plays.

Mark Thomson, Artistic Director of The Lyceum comments on the season ahead:

This season draws together the warp and weft of the classical and the contemporary; of Scottish and International writers; of challenge and celebration; and of society and the individual. The season grew out of a period in time where we’re all being asked to define ourselves and also decide what kind of society we want to live in. From Brecht’s Grusha to Ibsen’s Hedda, from young males in thrall to the machismo of contemporary gangster culture to women under bondage to men and the land; at the centre of this season are a set of very different human beings all trying to find a way to live with freedom and responsibility and good heart. Their stories offer us hope and challenge: a heroic, tragic, hilarious questioning of what society is and how we live within it. Stories to alert us to the opportunity to change the world and help us on our way.
