Point Of Echoes | The Place | 20-22 Sep
“The year is 1978. Two keepers have been stationed at the isolated Echo Point lighthouse. The strangers have just begun to lay down foundations for this odd working relationship when the uncanny occurs.” A tale of love, death and monsters from international choreographer Ben Wright and musician and writer Stuart Warwick. Promises to be whimsical, eerie and intimate. See this page here for details.

The Sword Of Alex | White Bear Theatre | 18 Sep-6 Oct
Award winning playwright Rib Davis explores themes of national destiny, gender politics identity and belonging: “Two leaders and their nations pitted against each other. Each must destroy the other’s version of history. But families are no less tribal than nations. As the great games are played out at national level, so too are domestic power struggles.” See the venue website here for more.

Jazz Jamaica All Stars – 50 Years Of Trojan Records | Royal Festival Hall | 20 Sep (pictured)
Gary Crosby’s 22 piece orchestra celebrates fifty years of Trojan Records with this performance of ‘The Trojan Story’, featuring special guests Brinsley Forde (of Aswad fame), Noel McKoy and rising vocal stars Dem Three, and loads of other highly acclaimed and well loved musicians. The label, as you may know, was the first to distribute Jamaican music on a large scale, so expect renditions of many well known hits and anthems. All the info right about here.
