Autumn Theatre Highlights

September 22nd, 2017 | by Andy Currums

Autumn Theatre Highlights

As the nights draw in, it’s time again to look to the warm sanctuary of theatre on London’s South Bank. The summer we sort of had has now slipped away – predictable only in its end. But the stage lights will shine on through the bleak months, bringing the joy and warmth we all longed for. So have a read below and see what inspiring artistic merriment there is to be had over the coming months.

  • Oslo at the National Theatre

    Having come to London from across the pond, a horde of various Best Play Awards in its hand luggage, Oslo now transfers to the West End from the 2nd of October. A crucial examination of international politics, this play offers the audience insight to the often secret and murky halls of border breaking policies.

  • Jane Eyre at the National Theatre

    The Bristol Old Vic has become a byword for off-the-scale invention and theatrical brilliance. Jane Eyre is no exception. A spellbinding take on Charlotte Bronte’s classic and influential novel, many critics have claimed it is the best adaptation of the source material to date. So for Bronte devotees and “I’ll read it one day” fans alike – Jane Eyre is not to be missed.

  • Saint George and the Dragon at the National Theatre

    With Brexit negotiations ongoing, the theme of national identity is of course a hot one. Bright young thing Rory Mullarkey is the next playwright to address this lively issue with his take on the story of George and the Dragon. After Saint George successfully slays the beast, the peaceful village swells to a city and soon George and his exploits are pulling the community apart.

  • Akshayambara at Southbank Centre

    Subversion of expected or perceived gender roles is very much being embraced by the arts at the moment. None are braver, though than Akshayambara which takes the 800-year-old tradition of male-only Yakshagana dance theatre and turns it on its head.

  • A Machine they’re Secretly Building at Southbank Centre

    In the age of Snowdens and Mannings, the topic of surveillance is one that constantly filters into our news programmes.
