The Lion & Unicorn Theatre - Drivers

September 28th 2021, 07:30 PM - September 28th 2021, 08:30 PM

“I hear it again. A little girl’s voice.

I stop off on the hard shoulder and I know what I’ve got myself into. ”

The debut play from the Uncle Ian Theatre Company looks at a nation caught in the grip of austerity during 10 years of Conservative rule. Drivers is an episodic narrative based on the true stories of four individuals - each of whom struggle to survive in a society under attack by cuts to public services. Incorporating videography and live performance, this reflective and harrowing play shines a spotlight on the issues of universal credit, food banks and zero hour contract workers.

This is the debut production from the Uncle Ian Theatre Company.

What We've Been Up To




The Lion & Unicorn Theatre - Feathers

September 21st 2021, 07:30 PM - September 21st 2021, 08:30 PM

The day before a national draft, in a bookshop hide two Feathers. They will soon part ways, on the run from the district's draft board, to find their sanctuary in the north. Before they both leave, they have one final visitor to their shop. When does patriotism become ignorance and when does morality become cowardice?⁣

The Lion & Unicorn Theatre - Lately

September 7th 2021, 07:30 PM - September 7th 2021, 08:30 PM

“The Monster Always Wins”

Cal & Alf. Callum & Alison. They were supposed to be part of each other’s lives forever, if only the universe had let things happen the way they should.

But whoever they were before, they’re different people now, and the problem with living here is that is always pulls you back again, no matter how hard you try to get away.

And the universe that sent them spinning into free-fall throws them together again when the girl who ran away comes back to find out what happened to the boy who didn’t want to leave.

And the question that the universe needs to answer most of all now is - Whatever happens to those bits of us we leave behind and thought we’d lost forever?


Proforca Theatre Company presents “Lately” by James Lewis, directed by David Brady, which makes its debut at the Lion & Unicorn Theatre in September 2021, an intimate, emotional story about the places we can never escape from, the dreams we never realise and the people that bring us back down to earth again.

Proforca Theatre Company is the managing company in residence at the Lion & Unicorn Theatre, Kentish Town. Lately is a brand new piece of work for the company, following the critically acclaimed "Feel" (2018-19 Lion & Unicorn Theatre & Tour) and the award nominated "At Last" (2019) and "AAAAA [FiveA] (2020) - (Lion & Unicorn & Albany Theatre Coventry).
