Faustus - That Damned Woman

TO:07-03-2020
+ More Info +

Award-winning playwright Chris Bush (Standing At The Sky's Edge and Steel, Sheffield Crucible Theatre, The Assassination Of Katie Hopkins, Theatr Clwyd and Pericles, National Theatre) reimagines the darkly compelling tale of Doctor Faustus, inspired by the works of Marlowe, Goethe and other versions of the Faust Myth.

Caroline Byrne (Spring Awakening, Young Vic, All's Well That Ends Well, Sam Wanamaker Theatre, Oliver Twist, Regents Park and Taming Of The Shrew, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre) directs this gripping Faustian drama which explores what we must sacrifice to achieve greatness, and the legacy we leave behind.

Poet In Da Corner

A coming of age story inspired by Dizzee Rascal's seminal album.

In a strict Mormon household somewhere in the seam between East London and Essex, a girl is given Dizzee Rascal's ground-breaking grime album Boy In Da Corner by her best friend SS Vyper.

Precisely 57 minutes and 21 seconds later, her life begins to change – from feeling muted by dyslexia to spitting the power of her words; from being conflicted about her sexuality to finding the freedom to explore; from feeling alone to being given the greatest gift by her closest friend.

Step into a technicolour world where music, dance and spoken word collide, and discover how grime allowed Debris Stevenson to redefine herself.

Debris Stevenson's semi-autobiographical piece features grime MC Jammz as SS Vyper, and is directed by Royal Court Associate Ola Ince.

Giraffes Can't Dance
FROM:13-05-2020
TO:17-05-2020
+ More Info +

Gerald the Giraffe has a tall, thin neck and long, slim legs. He's great at reaching the highest shoots on the tallest trees, but he's not so good at dancing. Now the annual Jungle Dance is just around the corner, and Gerald is longing to join the waltzing warthogs, rock'n'rolling rhinos and cha-cha cha-ing chimps on the dancefloor. But everyone knows that giraffes can't dance… or can they?

A much-loved book for over 20 years, Giles Andreae and Guy Parker-Rees' African jungle bursts to life with puppetry, songs, and a company of five playing warthogs, lions, rhinos, chimps – and a very special violin-playing cricket.

Perfect for audiences aged 2+, Giraffes Can't Dance encourages everyone to dance to their own rhythm, and to just be a little more Gerald.

Birmingham Repertory Theatre is located in Centenary Square, Birmingham. The theatre forms part of the International Convention Centre (ICC), which is one of the UK’s main conference venues. The Birmingham Repertory Theatre Company itself (commonly known as the Rep) has been one of the longest-established building-based theatre companies in the UK.

The Rep was originally established in 1907 by theatre director Barry Jackson, and founded its first home on Station Street in 1913. The construction of the building took just four months, operating both day and night, and became the first purpose-built repertory theatre in the world. Despite experiencing financial losses in its early decades, the theatre’s reputation attracted serious talent, including Laurence Olivier, Cedric Hardwicke and Edith Evans.

The Rep transferred over to their Broad Street venue in 1971 and enjoyed many years of success there. The construction of The Studio the following year saw some of Britain’s greatest artistic talent make use of it, including Kenneth Branagh, Judi Dench and Derek Jacobi. The current building was expanded and refurbished and now forms part of the ICC which is located on the same site.

Birmingham Repertory Theatre presents a diverse programme of works, and is especially well known for its musicals. Some of the biggest world premieres have started there, recently including The Snowman (which has had international acclaim), and Nativity! The Musical.
