Where and when: Riverside Studios Hammersmith, 12-16th July
What it’s all about… A rip-roaring ride through the plagues of history! With live music. From swarms of locusts to vine-destroying bugs, from the Black Death to Covid. Five interweaving scenes about pestilence and death. Can you make all the connections?
You’ll like it if… You’re interested in how we learn lessons from history. And what happens when we ignore them. Not your regular history lesson, rather a romp through the ages laced with lots of laughs and live music.
You should see it because… A Plague on All Your Houses takes a satirical look at modern pandemics, relating them to the ways in which we’ve tackled major threats to public health in the past. Brought to life by a versatile cast of four actors playing many parts. Have we learnt anything? Or are we all doomed?
Anything else we should know…: The show is part of the Bitesize Festival at the Riverside Studios, Hammersmith. Our show runs from 12th to 16th July with shows at 19.30 on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, a 21.00 show for night owls on Friday 15th and an 18.00 start on Saturday 16th. One hour long, so lots of time for discussion in the bar afterwards. Tickets are £10/£6.50 and comp tickets for reviewers and agents are available.
