A GREAT WAY TO FURTHER A-LEVEL ENGLISH LITERATURE STUDENTS’
UNDERSTANDING OF THIS CLASSIC TEXT.  ALSO A GREAT INTRODUCTION TO DEVISING
AND EXPERIMENTAL APPROACHES TO STORYTELLING FOR DRAMA STUDENTS AND
PRACTITIONERS ALIKE.

USING SILENT DISCO TECHNOLOGY, VIDEO INSTALLATION AND PHYSICAL
THEATRE, ‘A TALE OF GILEAD’  TAKES
THE AUDIENCE ON A DARK, DYSTOPIAN JOURNEY INTO THE MIND OF AN UNWILLING
HEROINE.

£8 TICKETS FOR ALL STUDENTS

 

THIS IS GILEAD.
THIS IS FREEDOM.

They took her bank account, her job…Then her child.
But she has one thing they desperately need that will keep her alive: for now.

In Gilead, they say, life is better.
But better never means better for everyone.
It always means worse for some.

Brought to stunning audible life, this classic dystopian tale is given flight
from the page, re-imagined in this
unique new production for the stage. Following their sellout performances at
the Dalston Eastern Curve Garden, Featherweight bring the show indoors for the
first time in this exciting new venue.

28/09/12 – 30/09/12
Friday – Saturday 8pm
Sunday 4pm
£12 / £8 concessions
