26 June – 13 July
Unrivalled Landscape, Orange Tree Theatre

Ariyon Bakare and Janet Suzman in Dream of The Dog Unrivalled Landscape, Orange Tree Theatre

A washed-up comedian, a park warden, a former war photographer, a security guard and a Bahraini prince encounter each other as they try to escape from their pasts.

Set in and around Richmond, which was described nearly 200 years ago by Sir Walter Scott as “an unrivalled landscape”.

Written by the Orange Tree’s Writers Group, which nurtures the talents of professional playwrights, it is directed by our Trainee Directors, who are part of a scheme which has launched the careers of leading Artistic Directors, including the Lyric’s Sean Holmes, Glasgow Citzens’ Theatre’s Dominic Hill, and former Directors of Hampstead Theatre and Birmingham Rep, Anthony Clark and Rachel Kavanaugh.

In 2012 we produced Archie Maddocks’ Mottled Lines, reflecting on the London Riots. The Writers Group also produced a popular series of response plays to last season’s productions. Former Writers Group playwright Omar El-Khairy is currently the Leverhulme Associate Playwright at the Bush Theatre.
