After 28 years as Artistic Director of the Tricycle, Nicolas Kent directs his final season, a festival of plays, films, talks, discussions, and exhibitions all about the Nuclear Bomb.
In the theatre, THE BOMB – a partial history, a political history of the Nuclear Bomb and its proliferation from 1940 to the present day, will run concurrently with the festival. THE BOMB is presented in two parts: FIRST BLAST and SECOND BLAST, and can be seen over two nights or on an afternoon and evening over the weekend.
‘Sharply edited and constantly absorbing’
‘A vivid, serious examination of one of the most pressing issues of our times’ Financial Times
‘Superb examples of powerful one-act drama’ The Daily Telegraph
‘An entertaining, provoking dossier, with admirable nuance and real purpose’ Time Out
‘A truly global warning’
‘It may sound like hard work but it’s not. In fact, it’s often very amusing.’
‘Director Nicolas Kent has carefully crafted this, understanding not only the pace of a play, but of a series of plays, and the light and dark necessary to power them along’
The season is sponsored by The Kobler Trust with support from the National Theatre Studio and National Lottery funding through Arts Council England.
