Confessions of a Butterfly examines Dr Janusz Korczak’s conflicting emotions as he faces his last night with the children of his orphanage, before they are taken to the death camp Treblinka - a moving and informative piece that avoids over-sentimentality. At The Lion and Unicorn Theatre.
The Tin Violin successfully shows that through community prejudice crumbles even in the most unexpected circumstances and environments. This worthy account of a largely forgotten honorary Cornishman is a reminder of how endurance, identity, and the need for acceptance are common to all of humanity. At the Pleasance Theatre Islington.
Playground, a creative work in progress, is an intense observation of the life of four young traders in the City’s financial square mile.
