Join us on this episode as we embark on a riveting journey through the diverse landscapes of London’s theatre scene.
On Railton Road: A Play is a captivating exploration of the revolutionary 70s, bringing to life the experiences of real people who dared to squat, emphasising the importance of queer domestic spaces. This landmark production, based on rare archival interviews, is a sold-out sensation that delves into a transformative period.
Richard Bean, the genius behind the international hit One Man, Two Guvnors, presents To Have and To Hold, a hilarious take on the challenges of dealing with ageing parents in his uproarious new comedy. Co-directed by the dynamic duo of Richard Wilson and Terry Johnson, both returning to Hampstead Theatre, this promises to be another triumph for Bean.
Prepare to be swept away by The Time Traveller’s Wife, a new West End musical of undeniable power. With music and lyrics by Grammy Award winners Joss Stone and Dave Stewart, this astonishing production, based on the bestselling novel, is genuinely affecting. Adapted for the stage by multi-award-winning playwright Lauren Gunderson and directed by Bill Buckhurst, it promises a sophisticated and soaring experience.
The theatrical supermarket GuyMart is back by popular demand at Waterloo East Theatre. Step into the aisles of this imaginative space where gay hook-up apps become a supermarket, and follow Matt on his humorous journey through the world of love and connection.
Lastly, buckle up for the rollercoaster of social media satire with FLIP!. Carleen and Crystal, two best friends navigating the online world, take a wild ride on the new platform FLIP!, chasing superstardom, influence, and money. But as they soon discover, everything comes with a cost. This sharp and thought-provoking play by Racheal Ofori, directed by Emily Aboud, challenges us to find authenticity in a world dominated by algorithms. Tune in for a theatre experience that spans the humorous, the poignant, and the thought-provoking in the heart of London’s vibrant theatre land.
