“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 (http://www.almeida.co.uk/event/littlerevolution)
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 (http://www.almeida.co.uk/event/littlerevolution). 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.
