Across London, several people wake up, all having had an identical dream: a nightmare riddled with monsters and explosions. That morning, John suddenly returns home. No one knows where John has been, only that he has come back with a vision for change.

…WE HAPPY FEW…

This show has ended.

In 1922 Benito Mussolini rose to power and promised to restore grandeur and national identity to the Italian people. Within three years the Fascist regime was established, laying the foundations for the rise of similar dictatorships around the world – chiefly Nazism. Less than a hundred years on, the world is witnessing the resurgence of nationalism: from China to Russia, through to Hungary, Poland and Austria, and even across traditional democracies such as France, Britain and the USA, feelings of racial supremacy, xenophobia and a perverse sense of national identity have been spreading like a virus. …We Happy Few… aims to share a reflection on what the rise of nationalism and the closure of borders may entail. Devised by students on BA Drama & Theatre module Theatre & Performance Making II. Directed by Teo Ghil. Start Time: 7.30pm Tickets: Free Age: 12+ contains adult content Duration: 45 Mins

THE AUDIT (OR ICELAND, A MODERN MYTH)

This show has ended.

There’s a shadow coming, across the sea. Long and terrifying. The vultures are circling, the wolves are howling… how can we weather this storm? The global economy is a mess. The crash has landed, the tide’s swept out, and it’s taken our hope with it. There’s less in our pockets and more to be spent. The rich have got richer, the middle’s squeezed tight, and the poor are being dragged ever downwards. With the true value of money and the human cost of greed firmly in their sights, tell the story of how a nation raised their voices in protest and railed against the currents. Using original text, performance, film, music and animation, is about finding strength, overcoming a world designed to keep us docile, and how collective power can move a mountain – even if only a little. The Audit was commissioned by Lincoln Performing Arts Centre, ARC (Stockton), Oxford Playhouse, Lancaster Arts at Lancaster University, hAb/ Word of Warning (Manchester) and artsdepot (London). Supported by Tramway (Glasgow), Curve (Leicester) and Arts Council England. Start Time: 7.30pm Tickets: £12.50 Full // £10.50 Concessions // £5 LIVE PASS (Students & Under 26s) Running Time: 1 hour (no interval)
