Breeders, Uncle Vanya and Accolade are part of the new season at the St. James Theatre

Stage One has today announced the three commercial theatre productions which will be produced by Stage One emerging producers at the St. James Theatre this autumn.

In December 2013, Stage One, the charity committed to developing and supporting producers for the commercial theatre industry, invited emerging producers to apply for the opportunity to pitch a commercial production to a panel of industry professionals.  This panel selected three that it felt had commercial potential, and would most enhance the future prospects of the producer.

The ONE STAGE season will open on 3 September 2014 with Breeders, a new comedy by Olivier-nominated and BAFTA long-listed writer Ben Ockrent, directed by Tamara Harvey and produced by Vicky Graham for Vicky Graham Productions. Inspired by Ockrent’s real-life experience, this play offers a new perspective on how and why we make babies. It follows the story of Andrea and her wife Caroline in their quest to have a child that shares both of their DNA, with the help of Andrea’s brother.
