British Production of LIDLESS Transfers to London's West End

Once again, InterAct Theatre has shown a knack for producing plays prior to their "big break." We did it last season with both Kristoffer Diaz's THE ELABORATE ENTRANCE OF CHAD DEITY, which went on to become a finalist for the 2010 Pulitzer Prize, and Lee Blessing's WHEN WE GO UPON THE SEA, which moved to New York for a sucessful Off-Broadway run. Now we can add Frances Ya-Chu Cowhig's LIDLESS, which InterAct will produce January 21 - February 13, 2011, to that list...

We were very pleased to learn this week that HighTide Theatre's production of LIDLESS will transfer for a limited run at Trafalgar Studios in London's prestigious West End. Directed by Steven Atkinson, HighTide’s Artistic Director, the play will run March 10 - April 2, 2011. This production represents the first time one of the company's shows moved to England's most famous theatre district. Early this year, the play had sold-out runs as part of the HighTide Theatre Festival and the Edinburgh Festival, where it was named the winner of the 2010 Fringe First Award.

Congratulations to both Frances and HighTide!
