On the same day that the UK government finally made the first of two decisive interventions that led to a conspicuously late lockdown, David Hare contracted Covid-19. Nobody seemed to know much about it then, and many doctors are not altogether sure they know much more today. Suffering a pageant of apparently random symptoms, Hare recalls the delirium of his illness, which mixed with fear, dream, honest medicine and dishonest politics to create a monologue of furious urgency and power.

Strike Out! (Kneehigh) Cornwall

PROTOTYPE PERFORMANCES – September
A small team of multi-disciplined performers will explore Italo Calvino’s Italian Folk Tales, creating rough, simple performances by firelight. Calvino’s stories come from desperate plague-ridden times. They are bawdy, funny, full of strange charm and pertinent to now.

THE SPACES BETWEEN US – October
It’s never been more important for companies to join forces. We have previously worked with Good Chance Theatre alongside refugees in the Calais Jungle. This autumn Good Chance will bring a team to the Barns and collaborate with Kneehigh artists to further explore outdoor event and performance, and the role theatre can play in bringing people together in ways that feel safe.

CELEBRATION AND WINTER WELCOME AT THE BARNS – Winter
The Barns will be transformed with a socially distanced installation and exhibition to celebrate all things Kneehigh and our 40th year. Here, we’ll present beauty, wit, minor miracles, music, firelight, food and short performances, as well as readings and excerpts of past and future shows.

ASYLUM – “AN OASIS OF HUMAN ENGAGEMENT” – April -October 2021
In the Asylum we light fires, eat, challenge, provoke, make music and party. We can perform and welcome a wider, non-theatre going community. We are not elite. We aim to be a rare oasis of human engagement in an increasingly corporate landscape. Kneehigh is profoundly political. The Kneehigh Asylum is a space where people can go on a journey and land in a place they never even knew existed.

Informed by our previous explorations with Good Chance, and the Winter Welcome mini festival at The Barns, we plan to erect the Asylum in Cornwall for an extended festival season in 2021. There will be food, music, performance and event.

15 Heroines, Jermyn Street Theatre

S (15)

Theseus, Hercules, Ulysses, Jason, Achilles… The island-hopping heroes of classical mythology leave a trail of women – queens, sorcerers, pioneers, poets and politicians – in their swaggering wake. Two thousand years ago, the Roman poet Ovid gave voice to those women in a series of fictional letters called The Heroines. Now, 15 leading British playwrights draw inspiration from Ovid to dramatise the lives of 15 Heroines. This exclusive online production in partnership with Digital Theatre is filmed live in our empty theatre. Delivered by an outstanding cast in three parts – The War, The Desert and The Labyrinth – 15 Heroines is a landmark theatrical event.

Dates: 9 -14 November 2020 (Monday to Saturday, 7.30pm, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, 3.00pm)

Tickets from £22.15 per event
