As User Not Found prepares for its London transfer – running at The CoffeeWorks Project next to Battersea Power Station from 17 May to 2 June 2019 – the show’s co-creators and Dante or Die co-artistic directors Terry O’Donovan & Daphna Attias recall the article that originally inspired them. Time to get booking!
Why has Time Out chosen Dante or Die’s User Not Found as one of its Top Theatre Picks for May? The raves that Time Out’s Andrzej Lukowski and so many other critics gave the show when it was first seen at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe gives a strong indication. We’ve rounded up our favourite review highlights below. The two-week-only London run begins this Friday – time to get booking!
Following huge success at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe, and a 2019 tour to cafes around the country Dante or Die’s ground-breaking digital hit User Not Found, written by Chris Goode, arrives this week in London, for a run at a coffee shop next to Battersea Power Station for a strictly limited two-week season. Time to get booking!
Jubilee is an uneven experience by its nature, but the success of the evening can be judged in the reaction of the audience. It was made for them, and they love it.
The world would be a better place if we had the room to express like Jubilee at the Lyric Hammersmith does. The honesty and severity of this piece is its crowning glory.
Random and topical thoughts and quotes gathered by My Theatre Mates contributor Aleks Sierz, first published on www.sierz.co.uk.
The best that can be said about Chris Goode’s Jubilee is that it must surely be in the running for the hotly contested accolade of the worst show of the whole decade.
Nostalgic, trying too hard to shock and no longer a force to be reckoned with, Jubliee is, nevertheless, a period piece with a difference which will find fans hoping to relive their youth or see what all the fuss was about.
Jubilee is a riot. From the slogans spray-painted on to plywood surrounding the Royal Exchange’s in-the-round space to the chaotic way the cast commandeer the stage, it is obvious from the start that this is no ordinary night at the theatre.
Warmly fierce: There is a deep humanity to Eve, at the Traverse, that makes it both challenging and reassuring, giving it an ultimate message of hope.
