The Clare

An ordinary businessman meets a volatile stranger in a park. So begins a fugue of splintered desires and mistaken meanings.

An everyday encounter unspools with enduring consequences. 

Genesis Award winner John R. Wilkinson directs this riveting and hypnotic play.  

When performed at the Young Vic in 2011, Jon Fosse's I am the Wind was described in the Independent as “Some of the greatest theatre I have ever witnessed”.

Established by John Studzinski 15 years ago, the Genesis Foundation works in partnership with the leaders of prestigious UK arts organisations such as the Royal Court, The Sixteen, Welsh National Opera and the Young Vic. Its largest funding commitment is to programmes that support directors, playwrights and musicians in the early stages of their professional lives.

In addition it awards scholarships to exceptional student actors at LAMDA and commissions stimulating new works, from choral compositions to light installations. 

In 2015 the Genesis Foundation launched its first partnership outside the UK, funding residencies for playwrights at New York’s Signature Theatre.
