Theatre Local, Peckham
After its successful sold-out launch in 2010 at an empty shopping unit in Elephant and Castle, the Royal Court Theatre will continue its Theatre Local project, taking plays to alternative spaces, at The Bussey Building in Peckham from 29 Sep – 19 Nov 2011.
A former cricket bat factory, The Bussey Building is at the centre of a growing cultural hub in Rye Lane, Peckham, which was saved from demolition by community group Peckham Vision. In its second year of the project, Theatre Local will now include longer runs of two new plays truth and reconciliation by debbie tucker green, and The Westbridge by Rachel De-Lahay, which will have its world premiere in Peckham.
