New theatre company Wryd Sisters Theatre take bold first steps in their tackling of a timeless tale – but would benefit from taking a breath and a stepping back to assess their ultimate goals. At the Lion and Unicorn.
A riveting, every-second-matters hour with the touring production of the award winning Snap.Catch.Slam questions the very nature of humanity, in both its most joyful and despairing moments. At the Greenwich Theatre.
As the audience are marched around a basement just off Old Street, this haunting, imagined production that follows on from the events after King Lear is a promenade production with a difference. At the Shoreditch Town Hall.
This adaptation of the deeply philosophical novel by Tamsin Clarke and theatre company Popelei delights as it rushes by like a tornado of emotion, talent and ability. A truly breathtaking evening in the company of extremely talented actors that will invariably leave you invigorated and bright-eyed... and all performed in a magical setting underneath the stained window at the altar at St Leonard's Church, Shoreditch.
