Tyrell Williams’s multi-award-winning powerful play about the impact of gentrification is set to transfer into the West End at Soho Place and opens with previews on 15th March.
Kedar Williams-Stirling will star in Red Pitch for a strictly limited seven-week run as Tyrell Williams’ play returns to the capital with its original cast. Bush Theatre’s associate artistic director Daniel Bailey will direct the production.
Red Pitch was originally performed at the Bush Theatre in February 2022, where it won several awards, including ‘Best New Play’ at the OffWestEnd Awards. Tyrell Williams was named ‘Best Writer’ at the Stage Debut Awards, ‘Most Promising Playwright’ at the Critics’ Circle Theatre Awards, and was awarded ‘Most Promising Playwright’ at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards.
The plot of Red Pitch follows the fortunes of Joey, Omz, and Bilal, three friends and local London boys, who live in an area that is steadily gentrified. The play delves into the wider impact this change has on London’s communities.
Red Pitch opens with previews on 15th March and will run until 4th May, is produced by Adam Kenwright, Chuchu Nwagu, and Nica Burns.
Booking & Theatre Info For Red Pitch
Soho Place is a small purpose built new London theatre situated at the top of Charing Cross Road next to Tottenham Court Road tube station which has a capacity of 602 seats.
The theatre has three levels of seating- Stalls, First Balcony and Second Balcony – and has an adaptable layout to suit the production. These adaptations include in-the-round seating covering all four sides of the stage, and also thrust, with seating on three of the sides. Soho Place is a contemporary, intimate, and innovative venue which offers excellent sight lines of the stage throughout, and has been designed specifically to ensure both great view and acoustics no matter where you are seated. Premium seats are located in the front row of the First Balcony, which is a fantastic vantage point from an elevated position, and also the central rows in the Stalls sitting a comfortable distance from the stage which offers a perfect view of the action.
Value can be found in the seats in the Second Balcony which despite being the furthest away from the stage have no obstructions or restrictions to the view and offer clear views of the stage. Tickets to Red Pitch in the front row of the Stalls can also be a little cheaper due to its close proximity to the stage.
