The award-winning theatre company Cardboard Citizens has today announced an ambitious season of new work at The Bunker in London this April. Celebrating 25 years of making work with and for homeless people, the company will continue its exploration of the state of housing in nine new plays commissioned by Cardboard Citizens from some of the UK’s most exciting playwrights.
This timely and playful season, presented in an immersive format, will look back at the history of UK housing, from the Victorian housing crisis through Heathcote Williams’ true story of squatting in the 1970s to the ravages of Rachmanism in the 1950s and white flight in the 21st century. The nine plays will be split into three Cycles, each Cycle can be seen as a stand-alone production, or alternatively audiences can book discounted multi-Cycle tickets or take part in a theatrical sit in and watch all nine plays in one go. The season runs 17 April to 13 May, read the full press release here.
