December 6th, 2018 | by Ella Stern

South Bank Winter Theatre Guide

Snow is falling. All around us. Children playing. Having fun. ‘Tis the season. For theatre and drama. Southbank’s Christmas – everyone!

  • Follies

    After a sold-out and award-winning season, Follies returns to the National for another run in the new year. This Sondheim classic is one on the truly great musicals on the 20th century – a must-see for any self-respecting theatre buff and an experience like no other for the musical fanatic in your life. With performances starting in February 2019, be sure to grab tickets in time for a perfect Christmas Day surprise or a Valentine’s Day treat.

  • THE TELL-TALE HEART

    The skin-crawling world of Edgar Allan Poe is brought vividly to life in this darkly comic treat from experimental theatre auteur, Anthony Neilson. An exploration of sanity and charm, murder and desire, The Tell-Tale Heart is a gothic classic and Nielson’s deft touch with the twisted and the intense is the perfect match for what promises to be an unforgettable night(mare) at the theatre.

  • RUMPELSTILTSKIN

    Australian cabaret legend Paul Capsis brings his unique and energetic acting style to the Brothers Grimm yarn. Although thought to have originated 4,000 years ago, the story of the tricky imp and his scheming plans is still regularly played out on stages and screens, much to the delight of the young and old. Capsis, something of a national treasure over in the southern hemisphere, is well-know for his captivating energy and kinetic performances. An ideal chance to see a classic tale in a new light.

  • A CHRISTMAS CAROL

    Well, no Christmas would be complete without Ebenezer Scrooge scowling his way through Dickensian London. And in the hands of Old Vic Artistic Director Matthew Warchus and under the scribe of theatre’s new go-to hit-machine Jack Thorne (playwright of sleeper-hit and oft overlooked indie show Harry Potter and the Cursed Child), Dickens’ well-known tale is given a classic feel that reminds us all of the joy of theatre. And the joy of Christmas itself.

    The Old Vic
  • War Horse

    If the above re-imaginings and dark, supernatural tales make you long for something grand and heart-warming, then international mega-hit War Horse is the show for you. If you haven’t yet seen the exquisite puppetry (which is now probably more famous than the show itself) then you should take this chance, whilst it is here, to become a teary converts to what is regularly cited as one of the best productions to grace the National’s stage in recent times.

    National Theatre
  • ANTHONY AND CLEOPATRA

    With an enviable clutch of awards on the proverbial mantle, the National’s current production of Anthony and Cleopatra really is something to behold. At the centre of the five-star production lie two of the brightest stars in London’s theatre scene – Ralph Fiennes and Sophie Okonedo. A pairing that, upon seeing together, are such inspired casting it’s almost a tragedy it didn’t happen sooner. A production that will be looked back on for years to come. Be one of the lucky ones to see the real thing.
