Sasha was destined to take the art world by storm. At the age of fifteen pop stars wanted his paintings, and a new exhibition was going to make him rich.

But now he serves in a stationer’s and no one’s even heard of him...What went wrong?

Philip Ridley's darkly comic new play is about art, family, memory...and being haunted by the life we never lived.

PHILIP RIDLEY...ONE OF BRITAIN'S GREATEST LIVING PLAYWRIGHTS.” Independent

Following the huge success of The Beast Will Rise – Philip Ridley’s collection of online monologues in response to the current crisis – Tramp are pleased to announce the world premiere of Ridley’s latest play at Southwark Playhouse for a strictly limited period. Tickets for the live-streamed shows are available via the Southwark Playhouse website.

“RIDEY IS THE MASTER OF MODERN MYTH.” Guardian.

Widely considered to be one of the greatest living British writers, Philip Ridley’s previous plays include The Fastest Clock in the Universe, Radiant Vermin, The Pitchfork Disney, Tender Napalm, Dark Vanilla Jungle, and Mercury Fur, as well as the screenplay for the 1990 film The Krays.

Tramp return to Southwark Playhouse following the postponement earlier this year of Philip Ridley’s The Beast of Blue Yonder and the success of their Offie-nominated production of Angry (also by Ridley) and their smash hit immersive version of Confessional by Tennessee Williams.

Jack Silver, Artistic Director of Tramp, said:

"I'm so excited for people to see The Poltergeist. It's a major new play by one of Britain’s major playwrights: funny, moving, and, as always with Ridley, full of surprises.

"Joseph Potter is one of the most exciting young actors I've ever seen and with a super-talented up-and-coming female director Wiebke Green at the helm the show should be something special.

“We want people to be able to enjoy the show, and these days that means feeling safe, so we're delighted to be working again with Southwark Playhouse, who have become leaders in socially distanced theatre. With Perspex screens between bubbles, staggered entrances, the audience knows they can safely enjoy ground-breaking theatre, and if they're isolating they can watch the live stream from home.”
