As the new Artistic Director of English Theatre, the 2023 Pantone Colour of the Year, Viva Magenta, holds a special place in my heart. It represents a signal of strength, optimism, and joy for our upcoming 2023-2024 season, which is all about unrestrained expression. After living in shades of grey during the pandemic, our lineup will immerse the audience in all the beautiful hues and tones of life. While Viva Magenta leads the launch, the season is fueled by all the other colors, showcasing a human experience through a kaleidoscope. Join us for a fruitful, prismatic journey in full color.
