Two plays will transfer from the Royal Court Theatre to the CLF Arts Café at the Bussey Building in Peckham as part of the Royal Court’s third Theatre Local season.
Bola Agbaje’s Belong, a co-production with Tiata Fahodzi is set in London and Nigeria, the play questions our notions of home and where we belong. Vera Vera Vera by Hayley Squires, is a blackly comic play about what we are willing to fight for.
Sponsored by Bloomberg, the Royal Court’s Theatre Local aims to take plays to alternative spaces. It was launched in 2010 at Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre in an empty shop unit, before transferring to the Bussey Building, Peckham in 2011 where the project will continue this summer.
Building on the success of 2011, both plays will run for over three weeks each and will be accompanied by a series of workshops and events to be announced. Tickets will continue this year to be sold on a ‘Pay-what- you- like’ basis when purchased at the venue.
