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. Using industrial materials like plaster and concrete, Whiteread explores the idea of unseen spaces, often making casts of the empty spaces left in every day objects. 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.
