A la Caja de Fósforos and Teatro de Contrajuego production   

 

Directed by Orlando Arocha

 

Based on the book Las Voces del Laberinto (Voices of the Labyrinth) by the Spanish author and journalist Ricard Ruiz Garzon, the painful process of schizophrenia is explored. The onset, stigma, recovery and relief are dissected in this purposely minimal stylisation of monologues.

Shackleton and his Stowaway

written by Andy Dickinson

‘When disaster strikes and all hope is gone, get down on your knees and pray for Shackleton.’
 
Due to popular demand, Stolen Elephant Theatre are bringing their Sold Out Ed Fringe play ‘Shackleton and his Stowaway’ back to London. It is based on the real events of the legendary Endurance expedition to Antarctica. It follows the misfortunes of an 18 year old stowaway who sneaks aboard Endurance. Initially, the stowaway is in complete awe of Shackleton. But this fades by the time Shackleton has gotten them trapped in the polar ice pack – even more so when Endurance actually breaks up and sinks. This leaves them adrift on the ice, hundreds of miles from civilisation.

OUR JOURNEY TO OPENING THE CERVANTES THEATRE

Watch this video to find out more.

The Cervantes Theatre stages numerous Spanish language plays throughout the year from both Spanish and Latin American playwrights. The productions are performed in Spanish on Monday-Tuesday, and in English Wednesday-Saturday. Our weekly Tuesday matinees are ideal for school groups wishing to visit our 88 seat venue.

All schools who wish to be involved with the programme will  be provided with our educational pack a few weeks before the trip, which includes information on our current production and interactive workshops which can be carried out in class either before or after seeing the play.

Visits also include a pre or post-show talk with a member of the creative team, who will talk about the creative process and discuss issues surrounding the play.
