Our emerging directors tackle two classic plays.

See a double-bill of reimagined plays including Yerma directed by Jessica Mensah and Three Sisters directed by Alessandra Davison.

Evolution Labs was set up in 2016 by Young Lyric and the BA Theatre Design course at Wimbledon College of Arts as a much needed collaborative opportunity for early career directors and designers to meet and co-create new work. This year four young directors will each direct re-lensed classic plays including a reframing of Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters, centralising the female characters and exploring how they are perceived through a male lens and Federico García Lorca’s Yerma relocated to a Ghanaian village. All plays are co-created with final year BA Theatre Design students from Wimbledon College of Arts.
