What’s On This Weekend: Affordable Art Fair, London Literature Festival & Anansi The Spider
Blood Wedding Play in Waterloo
From the creative vision of director Yaël Farber, comes the evocative and visceral production of Blood Wedding, Federico García Lorca’s most famous tragedy which has been adapted by playwright Marina Carr. Passions and traditions collide with unstoppable consequences as the mysteries of love and hate are explored against the backdrop of a community gearing up to unleash these elemental forces upon itself. Acting as a warning for our times, the fate of an individual versus society is brought to life.

Anansi The Spider Play in London Bridge
Just is time for half-term, comes this immersive and highly engaging experience in stage production – Anansi The Spider. People say that a long time ago, animals walked on two feet and spoke with words, just as we do. And back then it was known by everyone that the cleverest of all the animals in the kingdom was the spider – the infamous Anansi – the original trickets and master spinner of yarns. Celebrating Black History Month, the Unicorn Theatre brings to life a series of classic West African and Caribbean tales about the spider.

Full English Performance Marathon in Southwark
Against an increasingly distorted and disturbing political rhetoric of Britishness - itself born out of Victorian and world war propaganda - Full English is a project that aims to re-envisage a more broad and true definition of what Englishness is. The British artists in this exhibition demonstrate identity as something that is a far more varied, with a more true representation of race, gender, age and class. The 'Full English' Performance Marathon takes these concerns to a live space during the one-day marathon.
London Literature Festival on Southbank

Lungs Play in Waterloo
Directed by Matthew Warchus and performed by famous actors Claire Foy and Matt Smith, Lungs is the latest play to come to The Old Vic. Written by Duncan Macmillan, this hilarious emotional rollercoaster of a play is about a couple wrestling with life’s biggest dilemmas. The ice caps are melting, there’s overpopulation, political unrest; everything's going to hell in a handcart – so why on earth would someone bring a baby into this world?
