From Tuesday 5th May – Saturday 9th May at 7:45pm you can catch the latest piece of ambitious new writing at Theatre503. This is the politically fuelled EleXion. This production, which has been co-authored by the emerging playwrights on the 503Five resident writer programme (Chloe Todd Fordham, Brian Mullin, Vinay Patel, Ella Greenhill and Neasa O’Callaghan), will explore the cross section of British experiences leading up to the General Election.
Marci and Chrissy, two political advisors, struggle to balance the personal and political. Aziz throws an election night party at his chicken shop. Pavel and his mum prepare to have their moment in the spotlight. Gina and Lewis meet in the houses of parliament to make their voices heard, whilst Abha, a politicised young voter, comes of age and a party of his friends gather in the local pub to celebrate their right to vote.
These pieces are being written and rehearsed right now to capture the feeling of the nation prior to 7th May 2015. The immediacy of these pieces exemplifies the relevance of writing that Theatre503 has come to be known for.
