Following on from our successful run at Chapter Arts Centre last year, we are thrilled to announce we shall be once again opening the doors to the ‘Blavatsky’s Tower and welcoming you back into the fascinating work of the Blavatsky’s.
Written by Moira Buffini, writer of Olivier award winning Handbagged, 3 Crate Productions in association with Chapter Arts Centre bring us Blavatsky’s Tower – a timely play which introduces us to what could happen if we never left our front door.
Choosing to never leave the family flat to avoid ‘the crushed’, the Blavatsky children have learnt to interact with each other and the world in a more… unusual way. The action begins when a doctor enters their world, and in doing so tries to introduce them to ours, gaining mixed reactions from the now 20-something year old children.
Blavatsky Tower will make you think and laugh in equal measure.
"You see, what this country needs is a strong government to sort out the laws, bring order" Election night 1979: the sus laws made it legal for police to stop and search anyone - purely on suspicion. Two detectives on the graveyard shift in an East London police station place bets on which party will win. A black man is picked up, accused of his wife's murder. He is incensed, believing that he'll be fodder for an incoming government keen to flex its law-and-order muscles. A powerful, politicised cry against the still-current threat of institutional racism, Keeffe uncompromisingly depicts a corrupt world which looks all too familiar today. Set on the eve of the Thatcher victory, this new edition of Keeffe's classic, harrowing play coincides with the general election of 2010, and asks what's changed. Sus is a shocking and disturbing drama which protests against the rise of the right-wing, the infringement of civil liberties and the casual humiliation which the police inflict on their prisoners. Exploring the abuse of power and racism, Sus is a resonant, socially charged and powerful play, as relevant today as it was in 1979.
