James Graham's SketchingHe's one of the hottest playwrights in London right now - three of his plays (Ink, Labour of Love and Quiz) have been staged in the West End in the space of a year. Now James Graham is giving eight emerging playwrights a stage. Selected from 800 applications, the eight writers each submitted an untold story in which London plays a starring role. Updating Dickens for today, Graham and director Thomas Hescott have taken the Victorian novelist's first novel, Sketches by Boz, as a starting point and tasked the writers with creating the heroes and villains, the invisible people and characters who inhabit London today. Written by Aaron Douglas, Chloe Mi Lin Ewart, Alan Gordon, Adam Hughes, Ella Langley, Himanshu Ojha, Sumerah Srivastav and Naomi Westerman as well as James Graham, who brings all nine stories into a cohesive play, it's an exciting prospect. In this exploration of 24 hours in London you'll discover the city's secret spaces, meet drag queens and squatters and hear an intriguing story about keys and hidden doors. The choice of venue - the atmospheric Wilton's Music Hall in Tower Hamlets - is no accident. The very walls are seeped in history (if only they could talk) but it's the first time a piece of new writing has been staged here. What a way to make history.

 

About Wilton's Music Hall

In the nineteenth century, Wilton's Music Hall was a great mirrored hall lit by a vast chandelier, with 27,000 crystals and 300 gas jets. Opera, operetta, variety shows and old-style music hall were played out to raucous cockney audiences of over 2000. More about Wilton's Music Hall
