Perfect Pitch @ Tabard Theatre
Until 23 June Tickets

about

“It’s supposed to be a relaxing weekend. I’ve ruptured myself and lost three stone, and we’ve only been here twenty minutes.”

Ron and Yvonne have gone camping in a caravan bought with Ron’s early retirement money. At a cliff’s edge, with a view of the sea, they are looking forward to a life of relaxing after stressful careers, to touring in France perhaps, after a trial run in the campsites of England.

But what they imagined would be an uneventful time to themselves is interrupted when Grant, a bull-terrier breeding, middle-aged former miner pitches up next to them with his girlfriend Steph, a girl in her twenties. Their loud arguments, and even louder love-making, breaks the silence Ron and Yvonne had built around themselves, forcing them to accept situations, and home truths, far outside their comfort zone.

Following his first ever STI test, Cormac discovers the unthinkable: he’s contracted everything, running the gamut from the potentially lethal to the irrepressibly itchy and back again. The doctor has pamphlets, but as Cormac sprints into the Archway traffic, only one word rattles around his mind: “Bingo”

Regina Rump is on the rampage! A trio of masked vigilantes send Croydon’s crime rate plummeting. They’ve run away from their war-torn homes and are just trying to help.

But Regina’s not happy. She orders her media empire to unmask the Avengers and get them off the streets. Are they terrorists? Criminals? Either way, she thinks they’re a threat to British identity.

Then a freak accident at the Gatwick deportation centre gives the trio powers beyond their wildest dreams. Can three teenage refugees really become the saviours of a doomed nation?

The Croydon Avengers blends comic book visuals with action-packed martial arts to tell a funny, powerful story of terrorist threats, heroism and true friendship in an England that seems frightened of anyone who’s different.

What’s On Pick 
Act and Terminal 3 @ Coronet PrintRoom
Until 28 June Tickets

about


A double-bill of hard-hitting and deceptively simple short plays from Lars Norén, often considered Sweden’s greatest contemporary writer.

Reimagined in a near future USA in the aftermath of a second civil war, Act is a prescient interrogation of faith, conscience and atrocity and what is excusable during war. In a hospital examination room, a doctor assesses a female prisoner, accused of being a terrorist and now on hunger strike.

Then, storylines intertwine in Terminal 3 – a young couple await the birth of their first child, while in the same place two people wait to identify the body of their dead son. How does the birth – and death – of a child affect the lives and relationships of the parents?

what's on killed negative | www.imjussayin.com

What’s On Recommends
Killed Negatives @ Whitechapel Gallery
Until  21 Aug Free

about


Thousands of negatives by American photographers were systematically destroyed in the 1930s; these irreparable images were known as ‘killed negatives’.

Roy E. Stryker, head of the Information Division of the Farm Security Administration (FSA), launched a historic photographic initiative between 1935 and 1944. In order to expose American rural poverty, the FSA commissioned photographers, including Walker Evans (1903–1975) and Dorothea Lange (1895–1965), to record the struggles of rural life following the Great Depression. Omitted from the story of this landmark documentary project is the ruthless method of editing Stryker deployed for the final selection. The negative of each rejected image was punctured with a hole puncher; if a print was made the image would feature a black disc, floating surreally over faces and landscapes.

This display presents prints made from some of the rejected negatives as well as photographers’ personal and administrative records. Also included are contemporary artists’ responses to these haunting images. The photographs transform an act of censorship into abstract, conceptual and strangely beautiful pictures.

detail


FSA photographers include Paul Carter, Jack Delano, Walker Evans, Theodor Jung, Dorothea Lange, Russell Lee, Edwin Locke, Carl Mydans, Arthur Rothstein, Ben Shahn, John Vachon, Marion Post Wolcott, alongside contemporary works by Etienne Chambaud, Bill McDowell and Lisa Oppenheim.
