Theatre Local will open with debbie tucker green’s new play, truth and reconciliation. Set in five different countries it explores the very personal, human stories at the heart of conflicts in South Africa, Rwanda, Bosnia, Zimbabwe and Northern Ireland. Transferring from the Royal Court’s Jerwood Theatre Upstairs the 22 cast members will move to Peckham.

After its successful sold-out launch in 2010 at an empty shopping unit in Elephant and Castle, the Royal Court Theatre will continue its Theatre Local project, taking plays to alternative spaces, at The Bussey Building in Peckham from 29 Sep – 19 Nov 2011.

A former cricket bat factory, The Bussey Building is at the centre of a growing cultural hub in Rye Lane, Peckham, which was saved from demolition by community group Peckham Vision. In its second year of the project, Theatre Local will now include longer runs of two new plays truth and reconciliation by debbie tucker green, and The Westbridge by Rachel De-Lahay, which will have its world premiere in Peckham.

Tickets will continue this year to be sold on a ‘Pay-what- you- like’ basis when purchased at the venue or £10 in advance. With an emphasis on community engagement the Royal Court will also offer a series of workshops, alongside a programme of accessible events.

Info: 7.30pm | Bussey Building, 133 Rye Lane, SE15 4ST | www.royalcourttheatre.com
