  • Whats On

    Autumn Season 2022

    Welcome to the Autumn Season at CPT
     

    "This is a season that states, loudly and proudly, what Camden People’s Theatre is all about – and where the world is at in 2022. With intelligence, compassion and theatrical flair, the shows in this diverse, engaged season take on the most intractable issues facing humanity today. The plight of Palestinians. The legacies of British imperialism. How young people are defending an over-heating planet. This is what the UK’s most exciting new artists are talking and making work about, and it’s happening on our stages.”

    -        Brian Logan, artistic director of CPT
