The sublime and the ridiculous.
Taking their cues from film noir, gangland Britain and the clowning tradition, the critically-acclaimed Pantaloons Theatre Company put their own contemporary spin on Shakespeare’s most dangerous play in a forthcoming production at Artrix. Tragic and hilarious in equal measures this innovative take on The Scottish Play features femmes fatale, high-speed chases, killer lines, killer crimes and some seriously weird sisters.
The Pantaloons present Macbeth at Artrix on Tuesday 17th November at 8.00 pm. Tickets cost £14.00 (£12.00 over 60s & students)
Imperfect though it was, the Magna Carta limited the power of the monarch by stating the basic rights, privileges, and liberties of leading citizens and clergy for the very first time. There are few more stimulating thinkers on the subject of the Magna Carta than David Starkey.
A Cambridge educated grammar school boy who became a respected LSE lecturer, and the creator and presenter of many very popular historical TV series, Dr Starkey is known for his forthright views. You can hear the UK’s leading constitutional historian talk about the 13th century agreement at Artrix on Thursday 19th November. Tickets cost £15 (£13.00 over 60s and students)
