The new season at Wilton’s Music Hall

Sandra Giorgetti

Wilton’s Music Hall, the recently refurbished oldest Grand Music Hall in the world, plays host to a diverse mixture of entertainment in its new season.

Amongst its theatre offering are two anniversary productions.

The first is of Peter Terson’s Zigger Zagger which premièred fifty years ago, a commission of the National Youth Theatre. This exploration of tribalism, masculinity and belonging seen through football hooliganism is directed by Juliet Knight.

Also in September there is a chance to see Les Enfants Terribles’ award-winning The Terrible Infants as the company presents a ten-year anniversary production of this collection of Tim Burtonesque twisted short stories.

Later in the month, a five-star hit of 2015's Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Manfred Karge’s Man to Man, has its London première. This one-woman play tells the extraordinary story of a woman forced to adopt the identity of her dead husband in order to survive in Nazi Germany.

For young audiences, there is Chickenshed's Tales from the Shed and Wilton’s free family weekend takes place on 7 and 8 October.

Other live performances in the schedule include cabaret from Liza Pulman with her new show Liza Sings Streisand and Christopher Green's The Singing Hypnotist and "artificial hip hop music hall singer" Ida Barr.

There is also storytelling, comedy, opera and live music events including the BBC Proms with Eight Songs for a Mad King.
