Little Revolution – at the Almeida Theatre

“In the summer of 2011, London was burning. Alecky Blythe took her dictaphone to the streets...

“From the helicopters circling overhead to the burnt out buildings on the street, this explosive new play records the voices and stories of a community as the riots happened to their present-day aftermath.

Little Revolution is Alecky Blythe’s first new London production after the success of London Road at the National Theatre and is directed by Joe Hill-Gibbins (Edward II, National Theatre and The Changeling, Young Vic).

“See the Almeida’s space transformed as the audience are placed at the heart of the action.” – on the Almeida website

Following an initial phase when I booked a block of seats for members who prepaid, this option is now closed. Please book direct with the theatre. If you’re open to sitting next to another member, feel free to mention your seat number (and whether stalls or circle) in the comments below, for group members who might want to book a neighbouring seat.

Please contribute £1 on arrival (to help defray the approx. £100 per annum that Meetup charges to run a group) – thanks in advance.

In the days immediately prior, I’ll circulate details of arrangements to meet before the performance. Also, we will have drinks in the theatre cafe-bar after the play, for anyone who would like to stay on afterward for a conversation about the play.

    I enjoyed the play but at a loss to see the point of meet-up

  • Mike

    I thought the play was enjoyable. However, I appreciated the fact that character development was restricted because the play used the dialogue of the original people involved. Thanks Jane for organising.

    I have a spare ticket from a member who can no longer come. It is worth £28, but I can sell it for £10. It's one of the "group tickets" originally purchased on behalf of members who wanted to be seated together (seats D12-15). If you're interested, please send me a message.

    Have booked Circle Row A 51/52, for me and herself. Will be wearing Pro-Palestinian button. which, on reflection, seems appropriate on two levels. One, the play, as I understand the pre-publicity, is about desperation in the face of oppression, and the polarised opinion regarding root causes - as in Gaza. Secondly, the most theatrical event I've experienced recently was the meeting called in the Finsbury Park Mosque in support of Gaza Palestinians.

    • michael m.

      In the multi-ethnic ambiance of the packed hall, the enduring single image for me: a dozen and a half orthodox Jews entering the Mosque, as if that was the most natural thing in the world - and oughtn't it be? Wearing traditional dark suits, white shirts, long overcoats and voluminous hats, they passed in single file through a crowd of Muslims, mostly dressed, in turn, in their traditional prayer garb, in the act of taking off their shoes at the entrance, on their way to the upstairs prayer space. The Jewish delegation was sporting large badges on their coats: "Jews for Justice in Palestine."

      August 16

    • Jane

      Michael, very glad you're both coming - and thanks for your story of the visit to the mosque in Finsbury Park - I'm heartened by this gesture of goodwill by local Orthodox Jews
