Royal Shakespeare Company
Measure for Measure

"To whom should I complain?" When a young novice nun is compromised by a corrupt official, who offers to save her brother from execution in return for sex, she has no idea where to turn for help. When she threatens to expose him, he tells her that no one would believe her. Shakespeare wrote this play in the early 1600s, yet it remains astonishingly resonant today. Artistic Director, Gregory Doran, directs this new production.

Fleabag

See the hilarious, award-winning, one-woman show that inspired the BBC’s hit TV series Fleabag, broadcast live to cinemas from London’s West End. Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, Killing Eve) and directed by Vicky Jones, Fleabag is a rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life. Fleabag may seem oversexed, emotionally unfiltered and self-obsessed, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose. Playing to sold-out audiences in New York and London, don’t miss your chance to see this ‘legitimately hilarious show’ (New Yorker), broadcast live to a cinema near you.

Amazing Grace (2018)U

Shot in 1972, but not finished until 2018 because of a major technical problem, this documents the making of the best-selling Gospel album of all time that Aretha Franklin recorded live at the New Bethel Baptist Church in L.A. There’s an absolutely electrifying sense of witnessing music being created with the rapport between the Gospel choir, Aretha and all the musicians that makes you want to applaud like you are in the back of the church. With Aretha in her prime this is quite simply one of the finest music documentaries ever made. Guaranteed to send you home with a smile on your face.

Orchestra of the Swan
Mozart in Cuba

Strings and piano What is the connection between Mozart and Cuba? Cuba is politically, geographically, religiously, ethnically and culturally extraordinary so it is no surprise that its music reflects all of this. A heady brew of influences from West Africa and Europe - most notably Spain - have created a musical cauldron of unusual and compelling flavours, fusing elements of Jazz, Mambo, Conga, Classical, Flamenco, Abakua, Hip-Hop and Salsa. This concert is a journey into that astoundingly diverse melting pot of sounds with frequent unexpected diversions into the repertoire of Mozart. In case you were wondering, there is no connection between Mozart and Cuba.

A gripping, sympathetic cry for the dispossessed, Capernaum is a real heart-breaker that would be unbearable without the film's flashes of humour and two astonishing child performances that are moving beyond measure.
