Welcome to Fuel's Autumn 2018 Season

Hello,

Autumn is approaching and as well as kicking up leaves and collecting conkers, we're launching some brand new super exciting shows. Yep, that's right, Fuel's autumn season is in full swing.

Barber Shop Chronicles, Inua Ellams’ acclaimed play will embark on a tour of the USA and Canada, including a five week season at ART in Boston.

Bristol Old Vic Artistic Director Tom Morris will direct David Greig’s brand new adaptation of Joe Simpson’s huge international best-seller Touching the Void. The Dark, a new play by poet Nick Makoha and directed by the award winning Roy Alexander-Weise (Nine Night, National Theatre) will be touring to Bristol's Tobacco Factory and Lndon's Ovalhouse throughout November.

As part of 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary, Sound&Fury's Charlie Ward will be embarking on an epic UK tour, telling the story of how hospitalised First World War soldiers were played Charlie Chaplin films in an effort to cheer them up as they recovered from their wounds.

Andy Smith’s new play Summit will go on a UK tour including a two-week run at Shoreditch Town Hall.

Tonight We Fly, a festival of performances and conversations, will take place in Leeds in autumn 2018.

Check out our Whats On page for more details on all these projects. As always, we'd love to hear what you think, and #fueltheconversation so see below for ways to reach us, or even better, find us after a show for a chat.

See you there!
