The recently launched Bournyack Theatre Company will debut its first production, Drowning On Dry Land, at New Wimbledon Studios.
One of Alan Ayckbourn’s hidden gems, Drowning On Dry Land is a coruscatingly acid and funny play – an ode to failure, or rather to the English fascination with failure. It tells the story of Charlie Conrad, a man who seemingly has everything: fame, fortune and a legion of faithful fans. His talent? He has no talent. Directed by Paul Tate and starring Blair Robertson, Drowning On Dry Land runs from 18-23 April. For booking and more information please visit New Wimbledon Studios.
Inspired by the work of Alan Ayckbourn, who suffered a stroke in 2006, actor Martin Rossen established the not-for-profit Bournyack Theatre Company, in affiliation with the Stroke Association and with Anna Carteret as its patron. Bournyack’s aim is to produce plays by new and established writers that inspire audiences, making them laugh, cry and ultimately think.
