Known for plays without directors, sets and rehearsals the acclaimed Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour takes it to extremes in his new play Blank. Each night Nassim’s play full of blanks is to be completed by a new performer before a live audience. The play becomes a story machine to share the life story of the playwright, the performer and a random audience member.

Starring…

Paul Hunter will appear on 19th November, Tim Crouch on 20th November, and Hattie Morahan on 21st November.

Paul Hunter on 19th November, Tim Crouch on 20th November, and Hattie Morahan on 21st November.

Blank follows the success of Nassim Soleimapour’s globally acclaimed White Rabbit, Red Rabbit starring Simon McBurney at last year’s RADAR Festival.

It’s spring. The world is blossoming. Phillip’s potted daffodil is dying.

A copywriter at an advertising agency, fading into the background of a pale office wall, he rearranges words until they work. But life isn’t so easily edited.

Phillip doesn’t want to be Phillip. But what if he never really has been? What if Phillip is yet to become Phillip?

And then there’s Person, who isn’t anybody… yet.

Award winning company ANTLER return to RADAR with If I Were Me, a playfully surreal portrayal of the performance of identity.

If I Were Me won the Pulse Suitcase Prize in 2014 and was developed with support from Arts Council England, Old Vic New Voices Lab and New Wolsey Theatre.

Go to BushGreen
the lonely creative. by Robyn London

I have spent my life immersed in creativity.  As a guide, passion or perhaps what others may interpret as an unrealistic dream.  It is embedded within my earliest memories. It has nurtured my soul. There is beauty in the moments of creativity that healed parts of me, that I didn’t realise were broken. Memories of…
