Announcing two new world premieres at the Almeida in 2022.
Opening in July will be Patriots, a new play from creator of Netflix’s The Crown Peter Morgan (The Audience, Frost/Nixon), directed by Almeida Artistic Director Rupert Goold (Ink, Albion, Spring Awakening). BAFTA-winning actor Tom Hollander (The Night Manager, Travesties) returns to the Almeida to play Boris Berezovsky, the ‘kingmaker’ behind Vladimir Putin.
In September a fiercely political and lyrical play, The Clinic by Dipo Baruwa-Etti (An unfinished man) premieres. Directed by Monique Touko (Fair Play), The Clinic is a tense and transfixing portrait of a woman with a hunger for change, a family on fire and how to rise from the ashes of a broken world.
Almeida Artistic Director Rupert Goold said, “We announce two world premieres today – the first from one of the UK’s most successful writers across stage and screen, and the other by one of the country’s most exciting emerging talents. Patriots is Peter Morgan’s first stage play since The Audience nine years ago and we’re delighted to welcome him to the Almeida for the first time. Dipo Baruwa-Etti also makes his Almeida debut with The Clinic – he has been involved with the theatre since 2018 when he joined the Almeida’s Youth Advisory Board, and this play was written during a year-long residency at the Almeida as part of Channel 4’s Playwright’s bursary.”
