    Iris Theatre

    Join us this summer for an outdoor promenade performance of Shakespeare’s Hamlet in the beautiful grounds of St Paul’s Church in the heart of Covent Garden.

    Amid the rubble of the old politics a populist King rose to power, promising a return to England’s golden age. But now he is dead, murdered; and in the following bloodbath his brother has seized the throne.  

    A masked figure has been seen, stalking the shadows. There is whisper of a resistance, gathering in the dark.

    To be or not to be, that is the question - but can the nation’s heir, Hamlet, find the answers?

    Uphold the state; or join the rebels?

    Be ready to choose in this thrilling contemporary production of Shakespeare’s greatest play.

  • Rutherford and Son
    Rutherford and Son
    Lyttelton Theatre, National
    No Matinee

     In a Northern industrial town, John Rutherford rules both factory and family with an iron will. But even as the furnaces burn relentlessly at the Glassworks, at home his children begin to turn against him. Githa Sowerby’s astonishing play was inspired by her own experience of growing up in a family-run factory in Gateshead. Writing in 1912, when female voices were seldom heard on British stages, she now claims her place alongside Ibsen and Bernard Shaw with this searing depiction of class, gender and generational warfare.
