Little Wing Film Festival Shorts 2 | Hen & Chickens Theatre | 2 Sep
I picked this one because it’s the earliest I could fit in to the tips schedule, but to be honest, I’d like to see all the screenings on as part of this small film festival. You can find details about this event – which promises films which are “emotive and rooted in truth, illustrating how film can be an instrumental medium for addressing current social issues and personal stories” – here, and to find out about the whole line up, follow this link here.

The Dark Stone | Cervantes Theatre | 30 Aug-9 Sep
“During the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, Rafael has been made prisoner by the Republicans and Sebastián, the young guard in his charge, becomes his only company. They are both unaware that their encounter will change the course of war and theatre.” Inspired by the real story of Lorca’s friend and lover Rafael Rodriguez Rapún, and performed in English, see the venue website here for more.
