    What’s On

    oh yes oh no 2019

    The ShowRoom has built a reputation for presenting some of the most exciting companies touring on the UK circuit to the South East.

    We’re very excited by this season’s line-up which brings to Chichester, Bert & Nasi, Paula Varjack, James Wilton Dance and Louise Orwin.

    There’s also the Contemporary Arts Research sharings which are free to anyone wishing to engage in discussion around contemporary arts practice, so we hope that you will join us at one of these events this season, as well as an ample programme of Music and Visual Arts in our other sister venues across the University Campus.

    View our What’s On diary in brief here.

    Political Party

    Thu 25 Apr 7.30pm | Full £10 | Conc £6 | Age 12+

    Do you ever get confused or overwhelmed by politics?

    Do you ever feel like the only way to make a difference is to change everything?

    Do you ever think that if you can’t change everything immediately there’s no point trying?

    Luca reached a point where thinking about politics made her want to lie down on the pavement and not get up. Instead of doing this she is throwing a party. A political party. There will be drinks, dancing and eggs! No experts. No big words.

    This is a show about getting messy with the messiness of politics.

    An ARC Stockton Production co-commissioned by the Albany, Camden People’s Theatre, Northern Stage and Unity Theatre

    Luca Rutherford’s Political Party, Written & Performed by Luca Rutherford, Directed by Alex Swift

    Designed by Bethany Wells, Original Music + Sound Design by Jamie Cook, Script Advise from Chris Goode & Dougald Hine, Movement by Lizzie J Klotz & Alys North, Lighting Design by Michael Morgan

    Ephebiphobia looks at what happens when there is somewhere you could send a ‘teenage nightmare’, what might bring anyone to outsource parenting, and what it means to be a parent without control and a teenager looking for boundaries.
