Unfinished Histories

Unfinished Histories: Third Tuesdays #1

Arcola Theatre is proud to support Unfinished Histories new programme of  Third Tuesdays, a new series of table readings of significant plays from the UH archive.

The original series of Third Tuesday events took place at our Bethnal Green base in 2013 and were followed by the extensive series of events linked to Re-Staging Revolutions.
To start us off we are going to run a series of Unrehearsed Readings linked to key anniversaries of 2016 and some of the alternative theatre plays that addressed them 40 years ago.


They will take place initially at the Arcola Theatre meeting room from 7 – 10 p.m. and are free but places must be booked as we have very limited space. With an unrehearsed reading you come and can pick up a script, so it would good if you are prepared to read a part,  – or if you prefer you can just listen.  If you book but can’t come, please tell us as places are limited to 10 people.


October Event – Tues 18th Oct
The first in the series of Unrehearsed Readings is the theatre-in-education play: No Pasaran. It was devised by the cast and scripted by David Holman, first produced by M6 Theatre, Rochdale to mark the 40th anniversary of the battle of Cable Street when on 4th October 1936 the East End, especially the Jewish community, united to stop Oswald Mosley’s British Union of Fascists marching through Stepney.


These event links to the exhibition Theatre for Radical Change, which continues on view in the Arcola cafe foyer. See www.unfinishedhistories.com for more details
