Sold out

RADAR 2012 Sneak Peeks

MONEY the game show by Clare Duffy

A Bush Theatre and Unlimited Theatre co-production.
MONEY the game show is a new show that takes a playful look at how the world’s economic system came to the brink of collapse, and asks big questions about the value of the pound in our pockets.

The show is currently being developed ahead of its premiere in February. Specially for RADAR, we invite you to take part in an interactive game between two teams and bet on the possible future consequences of the global economic crisis. Winners get prizes.

DATES AND DETAILS. This Sneak Peek is performed alongside Chapel Street by Luke Barnes on Fri 9th Nov, 7.30pm. Tickets £12 (£10 concessions). Book now

It’s A Wonderful Place by Theatre Ad Infinitum
Multi-award winning Theatre Ad Infinitum takes you on an explosive journey to Israel. It’s a Wonderful Place is the testimony of an Israeli living in the UK seeing the Holy Land from outside. Enraged by injustice, stupidity, human cruelty and decades of lies, Nir Paldi has decided there’s only one thing he can do: put on his favourite party dress, climb into killer heels and don his finest stockings in the search for hope.

With an international all-female chorus and a mix of cabaret, cross-gender performance, physical storytelling and live music, Theatre Ad Infinitum embarks on their most ambitious project to date.

DATES AND DETAILS. This Sneak Peek is performed alongside Chewing Gum Dreams on Monday 12 Nov, 7.30pm. Tickets £12 (£10 concessions). BOOK NOW
If you can’t catch It’s a Wonderful Place here, see it at TARA ARTS or REDBRIDGE DRAMA CENTRE

I Promise You Sex and Violence– A work in progress of a new play by David Ireland. Presented by Greyscale

I will not sleep with him tonight, I will not sleep with him tonight,
I will not sleep with him tonight, I will not sleep with him tonight,
I will not sleep with him tonight, I will not sleep with him tonight,
I will not stare at her tits, I will not stare at her tits, I will not stare at her tits, I will not stare at her tits, I will not stare at her tits, I will not stare at her tits.

A new play about objectification, gratification and fornication, when you don’t know how to behave.
