By Thomas Eccleshare
Presented by Dancing Brick and Paul Jellis
with Tobacco Factory Theatres and Bush Theatre
Directed by Valentina Ceschi
A reclusive children's writer becomes wildly successful. Her books are treasured across the country. But when a troubling narrative starts to unfold, we find ourselves asking: what matters more, the storyteller or the story?
Brilliantly imaginative and theatrically original, Heather is a short, sharp play about language, prejudice and the power of stories. Thomas Eccleshare is the Verity Bargate Award-winning writer of Pastoral and the co-artistic director of Arches Brick Award-winning company Dancing Brick.

Nadar was the first great portrait photographer, a pioneering balloonist, the first person to take an aerial photograph and launch an air mail service, he was one of the first celebrity artist-entrepreneurs. A kind of 19th-century Andy Warhol, he knew everyone worth knowing and photographed them all, leaving for posterity psychologically compelling portraits of Manet, Sarah Bernhardt, Delacroix, Daumier and countless others - a priceless panorama of Parisian celebrity.
Nadar became known to all of Europe and even across the Atlantic after he launched "The Giant," a hot air balloon as tall as a twelve-story building, the largest of its time. His ballooning exploits, which include a catastrophic crash that made headlines around the world, inspired his friend Jules Verne create one of his most dynamic heroes.
The Great Nadar illuminates a larger-than-life figure, a visionary whose outsized talent and canny self-promotion put him way ahead of his time.
Adam Begley is the author of Updike (Harper, 2014). He was the books editor of the New York Observer from 1996 to 2009. His writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Paris Review, The Guardian, The London Review of Books, and The Times Literary Supplement.

This Oscar nominated film tells the true story of five-year-old Saroo who gets lost on a train which takes him thousands of miles across India. He survives alone on the streets of Calcutta where he is eventually adopted by a family and taken to live with them in Australia. Then, at the age of 25 and with just a few memories of his childhood, he determines to find his family and return to his first home.
'A deeply empathetic performance from Dev Patel and an unflinching view of child poverty on the streets of Calcutta provide a winning edge to Lion.' Kevin Maher, Times

Director: Raoul Peck
Runtime: 1hr 33 min
"The story of the negro in America is the story of America - it is not a pretty story." In the wake of Black Lives Matter and Obama’s presidency, this powerful film uses the words and ideas of American writer James Baldwin to produce a cinematic version of the book he never completed. It is a visceral narration about race in America that tracks the lives and assinations of Baldwin’s friends: Martin Luther King Jr, Malcolm X and Medgar Evers. Though partly rooted in the struggle for equality in the 50s and 60s, this film is about what it means to be black in America today.
'...you will be astounded by the shear brilliance of his polemic.’ The Independent
