Without the excitement of Halloween and Bonfire night this weekend could seem less exciting. However, we have put together a weekend of shows, sushi and fireworks to keep the November momentum going!
This weekend, Friday night is theatre night as the Gate Theatre in Notting Hill plays host to the theatrical work ‘Medea’ produced by the critically acclaimed Australian director Anne-Louise Sarks. This award-winning production centres around two boys playing upstairs whilst their parents argue downstairs. As their shouting becomes louder the bubble of imagination and fun within the bedroom is burst with the boys facing a series of tragic realisations at the hands of their mother Medea.
