"Theatre makers of the future"

Mark Ravenhill said of the team, “One of the main reasons why I wanted to be artistic director of the Kings Head was the opportunity to work with a new generation of theatre makers.  And because Susan A is in many ways such a personal piece - I've written it and am playing myself in it - it's very important to surround myself with new voices to surprise and challenge me.  Iman Qureshi provides an insightful outside eye as Associate Director, while Associate Creative Suzanne Ahmet, an actor of fierce intelligence and emotional honesty, is making a vital contribution to the making of the show.  With Simon Fraser, Jo Underwood and Roly Botha creating an integrated design of space, light and sound, I believe we have a great team of new talent.  If anyone wants to experience the work of the theatre makers of the future I'd encourage them to come along to The Haunting of Susan A."
