Old Earth – A Special Announcement

We are delighted to reveal that leading classical actor Alan Howard will be joining The Sixteen and Jericho in this Summer’s exciting new stage collaboration, Old Earth.

Alan Howard

Part of this Festival’s music and theatre strand, Old Earth is set in the evocative surroundings of Village Underground. Directed by Jonathan Holmes, it sees the first stage presentation of four monologues from Samuel Beckett’s extraordinary and unconventional Fizzles alongside newly commissioned music by Alec Roth performed by The Sixteen and Harry Christophers.

Alan Howard’s career has seen him as member of the Royal Shakespeare Company and take leading roles on the National Theatre stage, as well as appearing in the BBC’s 2000 adaptation of Dickens’s David Copperfield and providing the Voice of the Ring in The Lord of the Rings film trilogy. More recently he has appeared alongside Ralph Fiennes and Clare Higgins in the National Theatre’s critically acclaimed Oedipus (2008) and last year appeared as Sir Peter Teazle in Sheridan’s The School for Scandal at the Barbican Centre.

Don’t miss Alan Howard and The Sixteen in Old Earth on Friday 15 June & Saturday 16 June, 6.30pm & 8.30pm at Village Underground.
