Upstart Theatre's Autumn Season
Draughts Board Game Cafe, 24 September
The year is 2119 and the Republic of Mars is finally free. As the leaders of the revolution, the future of the planet is now in your hands. Will it become a land of peace and freedom, or a war-torn wasteland? The choice is yours in this new live game, designed for up to 60 players. Created by Tom Mansfield, Rianna Dearden and Chloe Mashiter.
Shoreditch Town Hall, 24-26 October
DARE is a festival of new and in-development theatre and performance exploring the borders between theatre, politics and conversation. If theatre were a music festival, DARE would be its new bands tent – a raucous, unpredictable and joyous place to explore the biggest questions facing us right now.
DARE Festival sells out every year so this is definitely one to book early! Tickets on sale now.
BENEATH THE CITY
Birmingham REP, 16-18 January 2019
After the death of her mother, a young woman flees from her home. She arrives in a new city, asking for sanctuary. But before it's granted, furious bureaucrats demand their own justice. As she is put on trial for a crime she denies, the community wrestles with its commitment to the people and to power.
Chapel Arts Studios, throughout the autumn
