Picton Place, Marylebone, London

Dates: 2010-11

A derelict building formerly home to Uzbekistan Airways, Picton Place was the site of Deli's first Theatre Souk, 14 Sep to 16 Oct 2010.

It was host to a number of Deli and associated company productions, including the first revival of Mercury Fur by Philip Ridley, directed by Theatre Deli co-founder Frances Loy. As well as its warm reception which was part of the critical reassessment of the play after its first production at The Royal Court, the production was notable as police almost raided the venue when a resident living next door believed the play's violent scenes were being carried out for real. Actors waiting offstage along with the company's producer intervened before the police stopped the performance.
