Week Commencing 28th October 2019

Get It Booked

Tues 28th October- Trojan Horse- Norwich Playhouse

So this week we have a hard-line work entering Norwich for our Get It Booked section. Trojan Horse is based on true events when national newspapers accused Muslim communities including teachers and school governors of plotting extremism in Birmingham schools. Written by Helen Monks and Matt Woodhead they took accounts from those involved in the governments enquiry to put together a piece to educate as to what really happened.

In a time when it is becoming increasingly difficult to trust everything the media presents before us, it is important to keep an open mind and educate ourselves to make sure we know the true stories behind the headlines and that is something Lung Theatre (who present this production) are committed towards. This play was originally developed with Leeds Playhouse and Amnesty International Freedom of Expression.

So this isn’t as frothy as some of my other reccomendations but I truly believe it’s important to educate ourselves with this tale of community, racism and media power.

One to Watch

Sat 2nd November- GRL DEM: Dia de los Muertos 2

So after an educational political piece for recommendation one…. for the second recommendation is for a Saturday night out, and the Art Centre has you covered. With female J collective GRL DEM promising to bring the underground to the mainstream promising world music, disco, jungle and mashups as well as much more. Doors open at 8pm and the bars open till 2am so there is no excuse not to shake your booty.

Excitingly as well GRL DEM are joined by special guests My Bad Sister. If you’ve not come across them before they are identical twins Polly and Sophie. Think Lily Allen but actually cockney and actually able to rap. There lyrics are catchy as hell and they are known for their mirrored choreography. Check out their songs on Youtube and you will see why this is the hottest Saturday night in East Anglia this weekend.
