The Fall by James Fritz, directed by Matthew Harrison
A satire about the property ladder from the perspective of 16-year-olds and 60-year-olds, the production follows a young person considering murdering their grandparents to inherit their property.

Bitches by Bola Agbaje, directed by Valentina Ceschi
Teenage friends Funke and Cleo set up the ‘Sons of Bitches’ YouTube channel in hopes of getting rich quick. Everything starts to fall apart when a meme of Funke’s mum goes viral.

The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid, adapted by Stephanie Street, directed by Prasanna Puwanarajah
The first ever stage production of Hamid’s novel looking at the ironies of prejudice and representation in a post 9/11 New York and Pakistan. It follows Pakistani native Changez’s disenchantment with the West and his journey back to Lahore.

The NYT, for the first time in its history, presents a season of new writing, including world premieres from two Olivier Award-winning playwrights and the first ever stage production of Hamid’s acclaimed novel.

“Fritz's The Fall... a textured and engaging play... could undoubtedly have a future professional life. ”

David Ralf (The Stage)

“Bitches: A punchy play that explores the perils of new media and the problems of interracial friendship... Makes a shrewd point.”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“TRF: A dark, unsettling tale of our times... doesn't fully translate... Sharan is generally very good... Conflict is lacking. ”

Daisy Bowie-Sell (What's On Stage, Time Out, Telegraph)

“Bitches: Tiresome, repetitive and, frankly, credibility-straining... Tijani looks to be a find... Ceschi’s production is lumpen.”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)
