Shakespeare, Stand-up, Modern Dance, Greek Myths – All coming to the Blue Elephant

Spring and Summer at the Blue Elephant

Comedy, tragedy, dance - this summer at the Blue Elephant in Camberwell

The Blue Elephant theatre in Camberwell has an interesting Spring/Summer season coming up, beginning with Shakespeare’s Macbeth from 22 March to 16 April.

This is Shakespeare’s classic, but with a contemporary edge and delivered by Lazarus Theatre Company, whose director, Ricky Dukes, rarely disappoints.

The dark world of witchcraft and sorcery is followed by the Elephunny season, on 4th and 11th May, with stand-ups previewing their Edinburgh offerings, and a double bill of contemporary dance and new writing from 19 – 21 May.

Unmythable (25 – 28 May) is an action packed show featuring the Greek myths as you’ve probably never seen them before – The Odyssey told from a disgruntled foot soldier’s perspective is just one example – presented by Temple Theatre.

And the rich mix of performance continues throughout the summer. www.blueelephanttheatre.co.uk
