    ‘A delicious double act’ (Independent), the enchanting repartee between real-life father & son Edward and Freddie Fox is a joy to behold; and they’re joined on stage by the ‘marvellous’ Nathaniel Parker (Times), ‘brilliant’ Susan Hampshire (Guardian), ‘superb’ Sally Bretton, and ‘thrilling’ Frances Barber (WhatsOnStage).

  • Arr We There Yet?
    Arr We There Yet?
    Spiegeltent

    A riproaring and swashbuckling adventure in which three sailors hit the high seas in search of treasure!

  • Barry Humphries Weimar Cabaret
    Barry Humphries Weimar Cabaret
    Barbican

    Barry Humphries is the masterfully seasoned emcee, and cabaret diva Meow Meow the chanteuse in this risqué, sophisticated and seductive tribute to the jazz-infused music of the Weimar Republic.

    Some describe it as cabaret’s golden age: the remarkable period in 1920s and 30s’ Berlin when hedonistic partying and social revolution turned nightclubs into hotbeds of decadent entertainment. Reawakening that spirit in this revelatory concert, you hosts will acquaint you with the oft-forgotten composers of the time, many Jewish, whose art would soon be condemned as ‘degenerate’ by the Nazis, dancing as it did on the edge of a precipice.

    His girlfriend, Blue, makes the dangerous journey across the quarantine line to be with him.

All the while, Torch pleads with Blue to leave before his resistance fails…
