Are you worried about the state of politics and society in the UK today? That’s the question I asked at the start of my post-show Q&A for At Last at London’s Lion & Unicorn Theatre.
At Last is provocative, emotional, gritty and thought-provoking – the qualities you wish for from every play you ever watch.
At Last, what happens when an Island puts up the barriers and withdraws from the rest of the world? Playwrights James Lewis and Alexander Knott’s new play allows a terrifying glimpse into the way an event such as that could become a reality.
How deep are the internal divisions in British society post-Brexit, and is it possible that the anger erupting on the streets around Westminster every day could escalate to the point of civil war? That is the question underpinning James Lewis and Alexander Knott’s dystopian new play, At Last, which literally had me pinned to my seat with anxiety at times.
Can a former paratrooper shake off the horrific consequences of war and become a loving dad? That’s the question posed by new comic drama Delivery, which comes to the Lion and Unicorn Theatre next month. Book your tickets now!
Andrew Bovell’s award-winning, world-covering, generation-spanning, time-leaping drama, When The Rain Stops Falling is to receive a revival at London’s Lion and Unicorn Theatre later this month, when Kindling Collective returns the play to the stage. Book you tickets now!
After my Q&A at Feel, the first production at the newly relaunched Lion & Unicorn Theatre, earlier this year, I’m delighted to return for this next in-house production from the same team.
What would happen if the world ended and the only two people left to rebuild it were a pair of clowns? Scram Collective’s new Camden Fringe show Fools of the Apocalypse offers the answer. Time to book your tickets!
The new trailer for BoxLess Theatre’s Hedgehog takes you onto the dance floor and inside the mind of lead character Manda, who’s not, despite her best efforts, having a good time. Check out the trailer, then book your tickets!
What sparks the creativity in a writer’s mind? In the case of Hedgehog writer Alexander Knott it was a blog post written by BoxLess Theatre’s Artistic Director Zoe Grain about “struggling just to get through the day”. Knott tells us about how it inspired him, how a piece for a solo female voice ended up with a cast of three and what triggered his writing career.
