Studio Season 2017

A Royal Central School of Speech and Drama production in association with Complicité.

Three shows from three Complicité’s outstanding Associates.

Marcello Magni, Complicite’s co-founder, directed Maktub, the story of a young shepherd who pursues a dream that takes him on an epic journey across a war-torn desert. Maktub is based on Paulo Coelho’s novel The Alchemist.

Catherine Alexander, Associate Director of A Disappearing Number, adapted Alain Mabanckou’s Tomorrow I’ll Be Twenty: ten year old Michel’s exuberant eye witness account of growing up in 1970s Pointe Noire, Congo.

Kirsty Housley, co-director of The Encounter, created a piece inspired by Laszlo Krasznahorkai’s War & War, telling the story of Korin, an archivist on an escape mission from 1990s Hungary.
