    Antigone - The Burial at Thebes
    Lyric Hammersmith Theatre
    No Matinee

    The war has ended. Antigone, daughter of Oedipus, learns her brothers are dead. Forced onto opposing sides, they have killed each other in battle. When Creon, King of Thebes, grants the honour of a burial to one but not the other, Antigone and her sister must choose where their loyalties lie. This epic tale of humanity versus leadership centres on a young woman with the courage to defend her beliefs – whatever the cost.

  • A Museum in Baghdad
    A Museum in Baghdad
    Kiln Theatre
    Wednesday, Thursday Matinee

    Decades apart, two women share the same goals: to create a fresh sense of unity and nationhood, to make the world anew through the museum and its treasures. But in such unstable times, questions remain. Who is the museum for? Whose culture are we preserving? And why does it matter when people are dying?

  • Angels of the North
    Angels of the North
    Trafalgar Studio Two
    Thursday Matinee

    Dennis and Mick are the worst taxi drivers in the North; ignorant, offensive and rude!  But when longstanding owner Val suddenly dies, they have to deal with her savvy, streetwise, tourism guru of a niece; feisty new graduate Roxy, who takes over the running of the firm. Set before, during and after, the General Election on December 12th 2019, Angels of the North is a hilarious and touching insight into what it means to the North now the red wall has fallen, seen through the eyes of a struggling taxi firm at the end of the line.
