This week 25 – 31 December

25 December 2017 Katie Da Cunha Lewin

It might be Christmas but London never stops! There’s plenty on offer: you might want to take in a Christmas show, explore some contemporary art, or take in some images of powerful women. Have a look here…

FCUK’D

This play, written entirely in verse, tells the story of a teenage boy who wants to escape the confinement of his flat and his life. This play asks interesting questions about masculinity, childhood and what it’s like to be a working class man. This is an exciting opportunity to see a powerful one-man show.

FCUK’D is at The Bunker Theatre until 30 December. Tickets from £10.

Rachel Whiteread at Tate Britain
 
Rachel Whiteread is one of Britian’s most famous and well-respected artists.

The Tate Britain hosts this exciting exhibition which includes a new piece from the artist.
 
Rachel Whiteread is at the Tate Britain until 21 January 2018. Tickets from £13.10.

A Christmas Carol
 
Jack Thorne adapts the classic Charles Dickens tale for the stage this Christmas. Rhys Ifans plays Ebenezer Scrooge, a miserly old man famously unkind to his employees, who is visited by spirits aiming to show him the error of his ways. Watch this uplifting tale of redemption this Christmas; a perfect antidote to the panto.  
 
A Christmas Carol is at The Old Vic until 20 January 2018. Tickets from £12.
