Theatrical Adventures

Moving stages, granite cliffs, temporary spaces and public loos: there's theatre in every nook and cranny in the country - you just have to know where to look. If you need a guide then our Guest Editor this week, Amber Massie-Blomfield, author of Twenty Theatres to See Before You Die, is on hand to point you in the right direction. Previously Executive Director of Camden People's Theatre, Amber's debut book combines compelling history with memoir and lists iconic venues alongside quirky and progressive spaces. Read our interview with her here.

As part of a celebration of one hundred years of votes for women - PROCESSIONS - take part in a mass participation artwork in June, bringing together commissioned banners from a hundred women artists to parade through the streets of London, Cardiff, Belfast and Edinburgh. The voices of a 13-strong cast of men from different walks of life are amplified in Fatherland, a vivid new production by Frantic Assembly's Scott Graham, Karl Hyde from Underworld and playwright Simon Stephens (Punk Rock, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time). Lastly, take a peek at the video for the new single from Bishi, a combination of Christina Rossetti poetry, voice looping, sitar and electronics.

For more culture gems and competitions (Athena's Wedding Royale; Coralie Fargeat's Revenge at the Institut Français; Flight of the Escales's No Way Out at Camden People's Theatre; Agnès Varda's One Sings, the Other Doesn't at BFI Southbank) - browse our Offers page. As for the best of the rest - rummage through our genre-bending pages where you'll find plenty of haut happenings.

Here's to wishing you a flamboyant week dear Players! Break a leg! RR xx
