They Sailed Away | Southwark Playhouse | 31 Aug-1 Sep
“Welcome on board SS Paradise. You’ll never want to leave! A motley assortment of passengers have snapped up 2028’s hottest ticket – a trip on the SS Paradise sailing to… well, Paradise, surely?But why do they never seem to arrive anywhere? Why are crew so keen on making sure everyone takes their medication? And why does no one ever return from being invited to the Captain’s Table. The passengers are about to find out that sometimes you can have a little too much of a good thing…” An intriguing sounding show from Southwark Playhouse’s Elders Company, details here.

Feral | Old Red Lion Theatre | 31 Aug

“Once upon a time, in a land not so far away, a dystopian society has formed as a result of the strict rules placed on what it means to be the ‘ideal image’ of femininity. How close are we getting as a human race to making this hypothetical future a reality? Using the myth of lycanthropy… yeah, that’s right, as in werewolves… four women interrogate this question using real life experiences to tell a new version of a well known fairytale.” This sounds interesting, see the venue website here for info.
