Theatre: The Bit Players

by José Sanchis Sinisterra
Translated by William Gregory 
Directed by Pepa Duarte & Sergio Maggiolo

1-3 September

A group of actors – the Bit-Players of the title – decide it’s time they got the recognition they’ve always deserved, and the roles they were born to play. But in taking radical action to realise their dreams, they might just discover that there are no small parts, only small actors…

The Bit-Players is a comedy of errors and a political call to arms that resonates with a twenty-first century world in perpetual upheaval and in search of a collective identity.

Translated from Los Figurantes and performed in English for the first time, this is a unique opportunity to see this absurdist comic masterpiece by one of Spain’s most celebrated contemporary playwrights, performed by an ensemble cast of young acting talent.

The Press on Southwark Playhouse Young Company:

“…the considerable energy and commitment of Southwark Playhouse’s fresh-faced Young Company…it’s hard not to be swept up with their lust for life.” The Telegraph
“The cast feels like a tight-knit unit, which is half the battle in producing a piece this admirable…” A Younger Theatre
