    Sunday Encounters: Simon Schama: Wordy The Tour
    Theatre Royal Haymarket

    Can words still pack a punch in the reign of Twitter?

    Have the carriers of thought, the deliverers of argument, the elements of poetry, the sounds that make us human – lost their force in the age of short attention span?

    Simon Schama has lived in the house of words for half a century – as historian, art critic, broadcaster and journalist. He has spun the web of words in big books and tight essays; he’s done stand up in Chicago and live cook shows on TV.  Now he has a new collection of writing on everything from Falstaff to Leonard Cohen, pomegranates to populism.

    You can hear his words on stage at the Theatre Royal Haymarket on June 2nd.

    Presented by Fane Productions as part of the ‘Sunday Encounters at the Haymarket’ season

  • Transit
    Transit
    The Belly

    Transit is about the life of a troupe; the ups and downs of touring, about friendship and the fun of being together and sharing experiences.

    Transit is also about how life is changing and evolving, and how one of these days, the circus will be nothing more than a series of experiences that will have shaped us, and memories that will remain with us forever. So for tonight, we are behaving as if it’s our last show together. A new dynamism is released, the zest of the moment.

    Tonight we are sharing this energy with you. When there is no tomorrow, we are no longer afraid; there’s no more uncertainties and misgivings! In a show, everything is possible! So we dare to dream; we plunge head first into the present, trusting everything to chance, everything, every single thing!
