Polka Theatre will reopen their doors following the £8.5m Future Polka Capital Campaign with an exciting new promenade adventure RED once again bringing world class family entertainment to London. Directed by Hannah Quigley (Marvin’s Binoculars, Schools Tour/Unicorn Theatre), the production is a thrilling mix of visual and physical storytelling, seamlessly integrating Sign Language into the performance. Audiences will get a chance to see different parts of the new building for the first time, including Polka’s brand new interactive sensory space, journeying across overgrown forests and perilous bogs on a mission to restore peace to a land overtaken by wolves.

Polka are excited to be working with a creative team made up of Deaf, Disabled and non-Disabled creatives. RED will bring together Zoë McWhinney (The Two Fridas, Chickenshed/ Handprint Theatre, V&A) in the titular role, along with Ciaran O’Brien (The Hunchback of Notre Dame, NYMT; The Story of Guts, Bristol Old Vic) as Alpha Wolf, and Bea Webster (The Winter’s Tale, RSC; Holding/Holding On, National Theatre of Scotland) as The Woodcutter.

The production features Sign Language storytelling, and the venue is fully accessible
