CAPTAIN SHOW-OFF! - FREE OPEN-AIR THEATRE

Wed-Sun 6pm at The Scoop at More London,  More London
Riverside; free
Adapted from the Roman comedies of Plautus by Phil Willmott,
with original music by Theo Holloway This joyous family show
invites you to a bustling Roman town as everyone anticipates
the return from war of the big-headed soldier, Milos
Colossus. But if he's expecting everything to be as it was
when he left for battle he's in for a shock. Expect audience
participation, sing-a-longs, mistaken identities and
slapstick galore as a colourful cast of clever slaves,
daring lovers and cunning tricksters take full advantage of
the chaos that peace brings.

WOMEN OF TROY - FREE OPEN-AIR THEATRE
Until Sunday 30 August
Wed-Sun 8pm at The Scoop at More London,  More London
Riverside; free
Adapted by Lisa Kuma from the Ancient Greek Trojen War
trilogy by Euripides . As the skies darken so does the
story. In some of the most powerful drama ever written,
Euripides spins his gripping account of the courageous women
on opposing sides of the Trojen War; their sacrificies,
triumphs and tradegies. This new adaptation of Iphigenia at
Aulis, Hecuba and The Trojan Women will resonate
dramatically against the backdrop of international conflicts
today.
