Remarkably nuanced… Ian McDiarmid’s performance is intricate and surprising
Evening Standard

Set between the 1960’s and the 1990’s, Hannan’s What Shadows has a striking relevance to London and the UK of today. You won’t want to miss this ‘crisp, sharp and impressive’ (Mature Times) political drama that stars Ian McDiarmid (Star Wars) in a critically acclaimed performance as Enoch Powell.

Enoch Powell’s Rivers of Blood speech was the most polarising political speech of the last 50 years.

Oxford academic and daughter of a Caribbean immigrant, Rose Cruickshank wants answers. Will a meeting with the man himself give her the answers she desperately craves?

Fishskin Trousers
By Elizabeth Kuti
17 Oct – 11 Nov
From £14.50

Fishskin Trousers weaves together the haunting tales of three lost people from different eras, united by the mysteries of the island of Orford Ness.

From the twelfth century, Mab gives an eye-witness account of the legendary Wild Man of Orford. Eight hundred years later, Ben hears strange noises on the Ness as he tries to fix the island’s radar system. In 2004, Mog is compelled home to Orford when struck with a terrible dilemma.

These echoing voices intertwine and show how human lives connect in the most surprising and intimate ways, though decades – and even centuries – separate them.
