From Neverland to a hopeful new world…

Inspired by the Dialectics of Liberation conference at the Roundhouse in 1967, Dialektikon brings politics, puppetry, vibrant colour and play to Park90 this festive season. Along with live music and epic words from civil rights activist Stokely Carmichael, poet Allen Ginsberg and philosopher Herbert Marcuse, this is the perfect go-to for those who want to feel inspired this Christmas.

The idol Moloch rules over heaps of treasure and weapons as great voices from the past cry out to Miranda to right the wrongs of an angry Earth. Led by Ayida Wedo, mysterious spirit guide, can she find her own wisdom and the courage to escape from this black mirror world of greed and war without falling for the wiles of the ominous Servant?

A deliciously dark play of passionate ideas

New year, new theatre: Here’s what’s kicking off 2019

Rosenbaum’s Rescue
By A. Bodin Saphir
Directed by Kate Fahy
09 Jan – 09 Feb

Miracle rescue or historical mystery?

October, 1943. Seven and a half thousand Jews flee Denmark in fishermen’s boats, crossing the water to Sweden and to safety from the occupying Nazi regime. To some, a miracle rescue of biblical proportions. To others, the question remains: how did thousands of Jews slip through the grasp of the most powerful war machine ever assembled?

Hanukkah, 2001. At a remote home on the snowy Danish coast, it’s time for two old friends to bury the hatchet. Lars and Abraham have not seen eye to eye for decades, but old tensions refuse to thaw as Lars’ relentless pursuit of the truth concerning the flight of Danish Jews during WWII challenges Abraham’s faith, patience and memories. And when an old secret surfaces and threatens the very foundation of their relationship, fact starts to blur with fiction.

Olivier Award-Winner David Bamber plays Abraham alongside Neil McCaul (The Other Place, Park Theatre) as Lars. Dorothea Myer-Bennett (Holy Sh*t, Kiln Theatre) and Julia Swift (Philadelphia Here I Come, Donmar Warehouse) complete the cast.

The Dame
By Katie Duncan
Directed by Ian Talbot

02 – 26 Jan

A lost world of seaside entertainment, piers and promenades is brought to life when seasoned Pantomime Dame Ronald Roy Humphrey returns to his Northern roots. As the curtain falls on the last show of the day, Roy is in a wistful, melancholic mood, but as the years fall away, ghosts and memories from the past confront him with what he has spent his whole life trying to forget.

The Dame takes us on a journey inside an entertainer’s mind to expose the fragile creature beneath the make-up, bluster and bravado. However many masks we wear; the truth will always be revealed.
