WELCOME As ever, our new season aims to explore big themes, and invites young audiences to consider some pertinent issues from both past and present. This is my third season as Artistic Director and I’ve been thinking a lot about anniversaries; of course 1914 is the anniversary of the start of the First World War but it’s also the centenary of the formation of Nigeria, and we have new productions to mark both of these occasions. A number of plays touch on the theme of war, not least Brecht’s classic The Caucasian Chalk Circle, and you will also see other familiar titles, like The Nutcracker and The Mouse King at Christmas and the return of the much-loved The Velveteen Rabbit at Easter. Young people are always at the very centre of what we do, and this comes into particular focus through Triple Bill by Dance Umbrella, during which we trial making the show a child-only space for the first time – see page 11 for details. As ever, we want a visit to the Unicorn to expand horizons and challenge perspectives, and I very much hope we will be able to welcome you here soon.

WE ARE VERY GRATEFUL TO THE FOLLOWING FOR THEIR SUPPORT

This award-winning sell-out show returns to the Unicorn as part of an international tour.

CHANGE IT. RE-WRITE IT. Written and directed by Gbolahan Obisesan

Age guide: 8+ Duration: 40 mins

The story of the Spear of Shango is about a brave young woman who must use her strength and agility to save her father’s kingdom. But there’s a problem, as the story doesn’t quite fit with the governor’s vision of a united country…

‘A tale of heartbreaking beauty… wonderfully inventive and playful’

This colourful and quick-witted production offers a creative insight into Nigeria’s beginnings in 1914.

Something Very Far Away was first developed with the support of the National Theatre Studio.

Full of magic, mice and adventure, this will be a Christmas show to remember. Age guide: 8+ Duration: Approx 2 hrs 30 mins (incl. interval)

BRITAIN’S BEST RECRUITING SERGEANT WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BE A MAN? By Joy Wilkinson Directed by Lee Lyford Little Tilley’s dreams are realised as she follows in her father’s footsteps and grows up to become Vesta Tilley, a shining star of the music hall whose much-loved act as a male impersonator makes her world-famous. War breaks out and she supports the cause by helping to recruit soldiers to fight for king and country, but has she used her stardom for good? And is winning the most important thing? The Unicorn commemorates the centenary of World War One and the 150th anniversary of Vesta Tilley’s birth in this feisty, song-filled and touching look at the life of Vesta Tilley (1864 – 1952), who was nicknamed Britain’s Best Recruiting Sergeant and led the way for female stars in music hall entertainment.

WHEN I THINK ABOUT THE UNIVERSE I LAUGH FOR NO REASON IT’S A BIG WORLD OUT THERE.

Directed by Ellen Edwin-Scott and Emma Higham What happened before the beginning, and before the beginning of that? Why couldn’t I speak for the first seven years of my life? If there is life after death, then what is the point of growing old? It isn’t only philosophers who ask difficult questions. These eight teenagers have some of their own. A devised piece of theatre from the Unicorn Young Company about what makes us who we are. Age guide: 11+ Duration: Approx 50 mins The Young Company is the Unicorn’s permanent, resident theatre project for young Londoners. It is open to 13 – 18 year-olds and makes work that draws on the experiences and personalities of its members.

REAL PEOPLE. REAL STORIES.

Created by Julia Samuels with 20 Stories High Young Actors Company Directed by Julia Samuels

By Evan Placey Directed by Esther Baker

Young people from the award-winning 20 Stories High tell each other’s true stories straight from their MP3 players. As they hear the words in their headphones, the performers deliver line for line to the audience what they are hearing – live.

With live music, beat-boxing and projection, this is a distinctive and unique new play from one of the UK’s top theatre companies for young adult audiences. Image: Wesley Storey

Delivered with unflinching honesty, this group of teenagers discusses religion, sex, race, friendship and family. Boys and girls play each other and cultural identity is swapped, revealing challenging and insightful perspectives.

A naked photo of Scarlett goes viral. Rumours spread across smartphones like wildfire and her reputation becomes toxic, threatening to shatter the fragile unity of the girls she has grown up with. But how long can Scarlett remain silent? And why isn’t it the same for boys?

Age guide: 13+ Duration: 1 hr 15 mins Contains strong language
