Comedian and actress Kathy Burke draws on her own experience as a Catholic school girl to direct Once A Catholic at the Tricycle Theatre in Kilburn, a riotous comedy set in a convent school in the sixties. The nuns at Our Lady of Fatima preach chastity and diligence as the swinging sixties approach in Mary O'Malley's play, first performed at the Royal Court in 1977 from where it transferred to Wyndham's Theatre in the West End and ran for more than two years. With tickets selling fast, this revival looks set to repeat that success.
Located in Kilburn, the Tricycle Theatre specialises in new work with political themes, and are notable as pioneers of verbatim theatre. The theatre was founded in 1980, and rebuilt after a devastating fire in 1987. After a few more expansions, the Tricycle Theatre now has a 230 seat theatre, in addition to smaller theatre/workshop space (the James Baldwin Studio), a workshop room (the Creative Space), and a cinema.
