about


Girls on Film presents a discussion on the state of women’s team sports followed by a screening of the cult classic Bend It Like Beckham.

detail

A third of all football fans in the UK are women, so why are women being excluded from the narrative? Why are women encouraged to be competitors and not teammates? And why is female sport directed towards how you look and not how you feel? How do we get men involved in the discussion?

Sport for women is so heavily focussed on personal goals, it overlooks other gains you can take from a team sport; social skills that can help you in all aspect of life, from relationships to the workplace.

We will be discussing with insiders why women’s sport is still being overlooked and underfunded – and what improvements are being made. How is the media tide turning if at all, and how do we start to show that women are tough and not afraid to get a bit muddy!!

Angry @ Southwark Playhouse
Until 10 March Tickets from £12

21 — 25 Feb Tickets from £14.50

about


A spaceship hurtles towards a black hole. A book-loving couple flee a burning city. A bloodshot eye conjures up kisses and wild animals. The world premiere of Philip Ridley’s Angry is a menacing, magical, and darkly comedic collection of stories that vibrate with the lingering unease of our times.

detail

Philip wrote the monologues to be gender-neutral, and Angry explores the difference between the same experience from a man and a women’s perspective. Both actors will learn all six monologues and both will perform every night, but who performs each monologue will alternate from night to night.

There are two versions of the show which alternate: “She follows Him” in which monologues 2, 4, and 6 are performed by the “Her” (and the others by “Him”) and “He follows Her” in which monologues 2, 4, and 6 are performed by “Him.”

about


Lea and Stefan are in a relationship. It’s been 10 years or maybe it’s been 14, but they’ve got a mortgage and ‘settled down’. The trouble is, they don’t trust each other anymore.

Was it that one of them spent their food budget on smartphone apps or was it that one of them sold their flat to 7 different buyers, or was it that one of them borrowed 6 billion and never paid it back?

Meanwhile, a voice on the radio sings you need more, you need more, you need more.

Jude Christian’s Trust is an explosive, shapeshifting exploration of broken relationships, the tyranny of capitalism and the denial you need to survive systems you can’t trus

What’s On Recommends

1984 @ Theatro Technis
Until 10 March Tickets from £11

about


1984 by George Orwell, adapted by Matthew Dunster

War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength. April 1984. Under constant surveillance and the watchful eye of Big Brother, Winston Smith rewrites history for The Ministry of Truth. Individuality and free thought are prohibited but Winston privately rebels against the regime and starts a secret love affair with a dark-haired girl. Can they bring down the party and can love ever conquer?

detail


Frighteningly prescient – its once futuristic title a date that has come and long gone – Orwell’s uncompromising vision of the future still has the power to shock and provoke. And in a post-Brexit, post-Snowden, post-Manning world, the play’s search for the meaning of truth is strikingly relevant.

about


Equal parts dark comedy and romantic innocence, Harold and Maude is an idiosyncratic romantic fable told though the eyes of the most unlikely pairing: a compulsive, self-destructive young man and a devil-may-care, septuagenarian bohemian.

Harold and Maude dissolves the line between darkness and light along with ones that separate people by class, gender and age.

detail


Dame Marjorie “Maude” Chardin (Olivier Award-winner Sheila Hancock), is a free spirit who wears her hair in braids, believes in living each day to its fullest, and “trying something new every day”. Harold Parker Chasen (Bill Milner) is an 18-year-old man who is obsessed with death, attends funerals of strangers for entertainment and stages elaborate fake suicides. Through meeting Maude at a funeral, he discovers joy in living for the first time. Harold and Maude dissolves the line between darkness and light along with ones that separate people by class, gender and age.

New York City – open for business 24/7.

The game is on in Sarah Burgess’ breathtakingly witty and virtuosic comedy exploring the vision, the vulnerability, and the vilification of those shaping – and skewing – the economy.

detail


In the same week his private equity firm forced massive layoffs at a supermarket chain, Rick threw himself a lavish engagement party – which even featured an elephant – setting off a publicity nightmare. However all’s not lost when you’re the titan of high finance – there’s still an abundance of cash in reserve and Seth, one of Rick’s partners, spots an opportunity to salvage the company’s reputation with an investment that’s both sound and PR-friendly. But Jenny, the third partner, and Seth’s nemesis, has other ideas: she’s not in business to make friends. If there’s money to be made, she’ll do whatever it takes to generate the maximum return, irrespective of what the critics might say…

about

A new stage adaptation of Derek Jarman’s seminal film Jubilee.

Faith in the establishment collapsing everywhere. The far-right on the march. Culture wars and random violence – all decked out in red, white and blue. But a spirit of anarchy hangs in the air, the desire to burn it all down and start over…

Forty years on, Derek Jarman’s iconic film is reworked for the stage and the social and political turmoil of 2017.

Jubilee is a free-spirited, gloriously rude, take-no-prisoners blast of a show, for young punks, old punks, and anyone who’s ever wanted to set the world on fire.

about

Touching on themes of gender and sexuality, drugs and addiction, youth culture and minorities of all kinds, the show features the work of 20 photographers from the 1950s to the present day.

Capturing the lives of people living on the fringes of society all over the world, this diverse exhibition features the work of 20 photographers working from the 1950’s to today. A cast of outsiders is documented in both gritty street photography and elegant formal portraiture, with the identities of junkies, circus performers, gangs, and cross-dressers being negotiated through the lens.

detail

Another Kind of Life follows the lives of individuals and communities operating on the fringes of society from America to India, Chile to Nigeria. The exhibition reflects a more diverse, complex view of the world, as captured and recorded by photographers. Driven by personal and political motivations, many of the photographers sought to provide an authentic representation of the disenfranchised communities with whom they spent months, years or even decades with, often conspiring with them to construct their own identity through the camera lens.

Fighting for Empire: From Slavery to Military Service in the West India Regiments @ Museum of London Docks
Until 09 Sept Free Entry

about


This display explores the changing image of the West India Regiments, starting from the life a single man, Samuel Hodge, the first black soldier to be awarded the Victoria Cross for valour. It focuses on the history of Britain’s West India Regiments from their creation at the end of the 18th century up to the First World War. Read more about the extraordinary story of Samuel Hodge.

“The key message from this display is that people of African and Caribbean descent played a significant part in our military history long before the First World War. This was not well acknowledged at the time, or well known since, which is why it is important to highlight this history in this display.”
Professor David Lambert, Professor of History at the University of Warwick

detail


The display is curated by David Lambert, Professor of History at the Department of History. It has been created in partnership with the University of Warwick and the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), and draws on research undertaken as part of the ‘Africa’s Sons Under Arms’ research project.
