It is that time of year when the whole of the country goes mad, nope I'm not talking about the world cup as that has already passed. I am not talking about Summer- we have already had our summer (1 week worth of Sun.) I am talking about all the endless great festivals. 

Now most of these festivals are music festivals, which are brilliant. But here at the Golden Delilah headquarters we wonder why music festivals have a great following. Latitude is an exception of course at it is a curator of all the arts -Dance, Music, Theatre, Literature and Art. As we are a new company looking to put our Golden Ray on many people and encourage a diverse audience to attend theatre. We are currently researching how theatre can be as entertaining as going to a festival and listening to music.

Our current formula of: 

great writers+ Brilliant Directors+ talented Actors= 20 minutes worth of provocative writing.

Works very well, however we are still failing to encourage people who have never been to the theatre to enjoy a night of our Golden Delight ( ha ha that rhymes.)

So we are putting the question out there for all of you to give us your input..........

What can theatre do to become more accessible, entertaining and inviting to a new diverse audience?

Lets us know, you can contact us on the details below or leave a comment.

The sequel is coming..........

It has been a month since Goldendelilah exploded on the Theatre 503 stage. We are pleased to announce that we sold out both performances and still had to turn many people away.

We would also like to toast our outstanding actors and writers listed below for all their hard work, passion, and creativity. For obvious reasons, we could not have done this without them.

For those who made it  to see the show, we are really grateful for your support of Goldendelilah. It means a lot to us.

If you were unable to attend, or you happened to be one of the many unfortunate people who got turned away from the venue; don’t fret! Goldendelilahhas great plans to bring you even shinier work and performances in the winter. Until then here is a brief recap and taster of the work on display that night at Theatre 503.

If you would like any further information regarding Golden Delilah, the writers, and actors – including copies of our recent works please contact Anniwaa Buachie, Creative director by emailing:

Many Thanks
Anniwaa Buachie, Golden Delilah, Artistic Director

GLUTTONY :Joel Horwood
ENVY: Graham Dickson
GREED: Serenah Cole
PRIDE: Gbolahan Obisessian
SLOTH :John R Gordon
WRATH: Hannah Burke

What did they say...

 "I just saw Beyond Control at 503 tonight and thought it was excellent. Golden Delilah curated a really brilliant set of writers and a fantastic group of actors. I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the evening."

Kate Budgen - Associate Director of Pentabus Theatre Company

“an exceptionally high standard of new writing”

Lisa Cagnacci, Associate Artist at Southwark Playhouse

"Anniwaa Buachie's laudable ambition was realised with an assured production of seven new plays by seven young writers on Monday night at Theatre 503. Playing to packed houses over two sittings, Anniwaa had also assembled an array of directing and acting talent, many of them garlanded with awards (she herself the recipient of the Alan Bates Outstanding Newcomer Award) which fulfilled Golden Delilah's aim to produce new writing promoting strong female roles.

Stand-out performances were by Somalia Seaton and Karen Collins. In addition I enjoyed the whole package presented with Pride Vision by Gbolahan Obisesan, directed by Scott Le Crass and featuring Sabina Cameron and Sioned Jones. The audience's initial sympathies for the blind Mary were gradually undermined as her blind racism exposed her sinful pride and heightened our empathy for Igyabo who must swallow her pride to survive."

Elizabeth Lynch, Director of Evolving Worlds
