London playwrights’ host venue has more to celebrate!
Katori Hall was one of the ‘503five’ writers 2009. Her play Mountain Top had its début at the theatre in June 2009 before transferring to the West End where it played at Trafalgar Studios. Katori later won the Olivier award for best new play. As you can see the play has reached a Mountain Top of its own and is now hitting Broadway.
Samuel L Jackson is playing Martin Luther King, the role that David Harewood took to the West End and Angela Bassett plays Camae, played by Lorraine Burroughs here in the UK. I’m very proud that LPC has been supported by Theatre 503, pioneers of brave new writing.

Remember, remember The Jack in November
LPC 2010 Member, Howard Colyer’s One Act play at The Jack Studio is running the week of the Platform from Tuesday 8 November to Saturday 12 November.
Vincent wants to be free of his mother, but she is old and he cares for her. She wants to rule his life, but she can’t remember her own. What is an individual but a collection of memories on legs? Take away the memories and what’s left? Legs.
And even they aren’t working well any more.
Directed by James Farrell, performances are at 8.00pm each night with a Saturday matinee at 5.00pm. Tickets £10 or £8 for concessions.
