Boy with Beer
8 – 26 Nov
Kings Head Theatre
Brixton, 1991. The morning after the night before.
‘That club last night. I was buzzing, you know?’
As London waves goodbye to the 1980s and embraces the new rave scene, Karl is having a hard time holding onto his Ghanian roots and Donovan is on the run… from his girlfriend. Set to a soundtrack of dub, Paul Boyake’s witty and tender play explores identity, sex and new beginnings – and how in the search for ourselves we might discover what we really want.
13 Nov – 18 Dec
Merton Arts Space at Wimbledon Library
‘It was then I began to understand that everything in the room had stopped a long time ago. The clock, the watch, time itself was standing still.’
This December, Wimbledon Library becomes Satis House, home to Miss Havisham, Charles Dickens’ ghostly bride. Attic Theatre Company bring Dickens’ classic tale of romance, ruthless ambition and revenge to Merton Arts Space, the library’s brand new arts centre in the heart of Wimbledon. This production is the London premiere of the adaptation by Theresa Heskins (Artistic Director of the New Vic Theatre, Staffordshire) and follows on from the success of Attic’s last production – Beacons, at the Park Theatre.
