PomonaNed Bennett directs Alistair McDowall's sinister and surreal thriller about a girl called Ollie, who searches Manchester for her missing sister and discovers that all roads lead to an abandoned concrete island called Pomona at the heart of the city. Pomona transfers to the National Theatre's Temporary Theatre following a critically-acclaimed run at the Orange Tree in Richmond when 'Curious Incident...' playwright Simon Stephens described it as "a ferociously bold bit of programming achieved with real force" and Lyn Gardner said, "Pomona is fantastic. Astonishingly slippery and dark thriller, a twisted game or fairytale in which monsters are all too real."

 

About Temporary Theatre (formerly The Shed)

Originally called 'The Shed' when it first opened in March 2013, the Temporary Theatre run by and to the front of the National Theatre, is unmissable thanks to its brilliant red colour and power station-like towers. Originally intended as a temporary venue, to be used for twelve months while the Cottesloe closed and became the Dorfman Theatre, the design by Haworth Tompkins has proved so popular that the structure still remains in place.
