Battersea Arts Centre
18 April

His fingers fly, dark eyes
fixed on the distance:
the guitar his accomplice.

Red velvet dress, red wine,
and a woman enchanted;
the guitar is his promise.

Orpheus, by Little Bulb, runs at the BAC until 11 May

The Shed at The National Theatre
10 April

Table of love and hope.
A wedding gift

of scars. A leopard's claw.
A line of ink, urine

or blood. The weight
of age and family.

A wooden board, heavy
with stones and stories.

Table runs at The Shed until 18 May

Blown Away

Polka Theatre
6 April 

Like fireflies above a sleeping world, 
star-lit, soaring, playing 
above the city and the sea, sliding 
down red rooftops and dancing 
over distant green meadows. 

Retreat to pillowy soft clouds
and hide and seek and taste 
your favourite flavour in the wind, 
chocolate and butterscotch 
bursting upon your tongue. 

Blown Away by Birdsnest Theatre
is on tour until 20 April

Above Me The Wide Blue Sky

28 March
Young Vic

The sky is quiet now the birds have gone,
the fields green and bare without flowers.
The path is there beneath a line of trees,
but where the silver fish flashing the stream?

Above Me The Wide Blue Sky by Fevered Sleep 
ran from 7 - 28 March at the Young Vic

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Bristol Old Vic
30 March 

A pagan place this, all hardwood 
and leather, lightbars falling
from the ribs of trees;

and here are flowers, purple
and pregnant, trailing love streamers
upon an airy sea.


A Midsummer Night's Dream runs at the Bristol Old Vic until 4 May
