THE UNDEFINABLE

Thu 19th Mar - Thu 19th Mar

Live radio gig-theatre about unconventional relationships and the underrepresented qualities of love. Two dudes. Well, kind of dudes. A garage studio. A late night broadcast. Time slips between noughties love-pop, 70s folk fever and 18th century French philosophy. The dudes slip between instruments. Everything gets tangled. Our kind of love is tangled and slippery. Love in the in-between. Love that doesn’t have language yet. This is the Undefinable. Clear the decks for historical wigs, irreverent nudity, reckless dancing, and a whole lot of coffee – as we embark on a queer-platonic mix-tape into the unknown future and forgotten past of doing love differently. Start Time: 7.30pm Tickets: £12.50 Full // £5 LIVE PASS (Students & Under 26s) Running Time: 1 hour (no interval) Every performance of The Undefinable will be accessible to Visually Impaired audiences through live audio description incorporated into the performance style of the show. There is no touch tour.

JANE EYRE

“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will” A gothic masterpiece of tempestuous passions and dark secrets, Jane Eyre tells the thrilling story of an orphan girl and her journey from a childhood of loneliness and cruelty to a life at Thornfield Hall and an unlikely relationship with the mysterious Mr Rochester. Falling in love, she gradually uncovers a hidden past to the gloomy, forbidding Thornfield Hall, a terrible secret that forces her to make a heart-wrenching choice. Captivating, brooding and intensely powerful, Jane Eyre is a moving and unforgettable portrayal of one woman’s quest for equality and freedom, and lives as one of the great triumphs of storytelling.
