A View From Islington North

Age Restriction: Recommend for 14+, includes swearing.

Five plays take to the stage of the Arts Theatre this May as Max Stafford Clark directs the anthology show A View From Islington North. The pieces themselves come from the pens of some well known names in the world of political writing and as a result this will fill of the needs of those craving good political satire.

The shows are The Accidental Leader by Alistair Beaton and Stella Feehily, How To Get Ahead In Politics, also by Beaton and Feehily, Ayn Rand Takes A Stand by David Hare, The Mother by Mark Ravenhill and Tickets Are Now On Sale by Caryl Churchill.

These stories take a look into the world of politics, from behind-the-scenes looks at the big parties to inside the minds of some of the well known figures as well. We also delve into the military and sponsorship and it is clear that by the end of the evening audiences will have been taken on a memorable journey that will be both poignant and funny.

And as it is presented to us by Max Stafford-Clark we can be sure that we are in safe hands. The writer and director has worked on production across the capital. He was once the Artistic Director of the Royal Court Theatre and audiences have seen his work at that venue on multiple occasions, with examples such as King Lear and The Seagull. His credits also include The Country Wife for the Royal Shakespeare Company, The Overwhelming at the National Theatre and Feelgood in the West End. As well as his work for the Royal Court he is also known for founding the Out Of Joint theatre company.

And with A View From Islington North he takes on the work of many names he has worked with before as Caryl Churchill and others have contributed work to Out Of Joint. Undoubtedly this means that he will be able to translate their work to the stage perfectly so that audiences leave the Arts Theatre completely satisfied.

A View From Islington North runs at the Arts Theatre from Tuesday 24th May 2016 (previews from Wednesday 18th May 2016).
