Meanwhile, The Flies (11 – 29 March) is returning to Camden People’s Theatre after a sell-out run last summer. Incorporating live music by A Riot in Heaven, the play by Jean Paul Sartre is co-directed by David Furlong and Kevin Rowntree. The Flies combines a range of theatrical innovations to produce a show described as merging a Greek myth with live indie rock music.
And making a stop at London’s Soho Theatre is the touring production of Void Story (21 – 25 April). Performed by acclaimed avant-garde theatre company Forced Entertainment, Void Story is travelling as part of the SPILL Festival. Following a couple as they venture through a night of tortures within a desolate city, Void Story is performed as if it were a radio play—with the actors flipping through scripts and providing the sound affects as they sit at a table. The performance combines live action with pre-recorded video that is projected onstage.
