production information

Almeida Questions is an eclectic programme of pre-show discussions which consider some of the questions raised by the work on our stage. In each discussion, invited panellists dig into the key issues and ideas emerging from the show. 

Almeida Questions isn’t a Q&A about the show, but will enhance your experience of seeing it - giving you an opportunity to hear from expert speakers about their views on, and ultimately their answers to, the big questions our shows are asking.

Hosted by: Almeida Theatre Artistic Director, Rupert Goold.

Actor, Playwright and screenwriter Alecky Blythe set up Recorded Delivery (Verbatim Theatre Company) in 2003. Since then she has specialised in verbatim theatre. London Road, which she co-authored with composer Adam Cork, won Best Musical at the Critics' Circle Awards and was revived in 2012 at the National Theatre in the Olivier after its sell-out run in the Cottesloe in 2011. The Almeida’s production of Little Revolution, earlier this year, saw Alecky taking to the stage as ‘herself’ for the first time.

David Cromer is an Actor and Director, and Our Town is the first time he has appeared in his own work. Cromer’s work has garnered multiple awards throughout the US, working with companies such as Steppenwolf Theatre and Big Game Theatre. As an actor he has recently appeared with Denzel Washington on Broadway in the Tony Awards winning A Raisin in the Sun.

Bryony Kimmings is an artist who makes performance, dance, music, spoken word and video. Her work is haphazard, loud, dangerous, unpredictable and above all, mega fun! She is currently touring the UK as her alter-ego Catherine Bennett, who was created out of Credible Likeable Superstar Role-Model, in which Bryony performed alongside her 9 year-old niece, Taylor.
