Black Men Walking

Black Men Walking

North Wall Arts Centre
April 23 @ 8:00 pm - April 24 @ 10:00 pm

“We walk. Though we are written into the landscape you don’t see us. We walked England before the English.” Thomas, Matthew and Richard walk. They walk the first Saturday of every month. Walking and talking. But this walk… Maybe they should have cancelled, but they needed the walk today. Out in the Peaks, they find themselves forced to walk backwards through two thousand years before they can move forwards. Black Men Walking is the first national tour born from Revolution…

Périclès, Prince De Tyr

Oxford Playhouse
April 24 @ 7:30 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 7:30pm, repeating until April 28, 2018

Périclès is one of Shakespeare’s strangest and most heartrending plays. Périclès navigates a stormy sea of pirates, magicians, brothels, kidnappers, tournaments, plots against his life...and divine intervention from the goddess Diana. Yet this remarkable play has resonance far beyond the time when it was written: today’s Mediterranean is no stranger to appalling and desperate voyages. It is a fable of a man who becomes estranged from those he loves. A man who slowly and miraculously becomes reunited with them, more…

Tez Ilyas: Teztify

The Old Fire Station
April 26 @ 8:00 pm

Armed with his trademark cheek and uncompromising approach, Tez presents his slick, smart and typically subversive new stand-up show. As seen on BBC2’s Mock The Week, Live at the BBC, Channel 4’s The Last Leg – and heard on BBC Radio Four with two series of Tez Talks. ★★★★ “Tez Ilyas’ political stand-up is candy floss with a razorblade inside: sweet and familiar at first, then shockingly, painfully sharp. It takes serious talent to pull off” – The Telegraph ★★★★…
