Spotlight On: Poet in da Corner at Royal Court
What do I need to know? Writer-performer Debris Stephenson’s semi-autobiographical grime musical is based on her experience growing up in a working class Mormon household in East London, where she was kicked out of her house for identifying as queer. Inspired by Dizzee Rascal's seminal album Boy in da Corner, she grabbed the mic herself, and is bringing rave culture to the Royal Court.

The Best of the Rest:
You Stupid Darkness! at Southwark Playhouse
What do I need to know?

Women Beware Women at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse
What do I need to know? Thomas Middleton might have written this exploration of gender power dynamics 500 years ago, but that doesn't mean it's not relevant - we are still trying to answer the question of how to live while navigating a society in which women are consciously and unconsciously commodified, coerced and controlled.
