Whitty Theatre: 'The Rising'

The Rising is inspired by Fijan dance forms and culture. The highly charged show explores what it means to feel alive and empowered, drawing from ideas of vulnerability, surrender, and our embodied sense of community.

The performance has live music originally composed and played by multi-award-winning musicians Will McNicol and Luke Selby.

Tickets: £10, concessions £8 available from ticketsource.co.uk.

This production is presented by Heather Walrond Company.

Wokingham Theatre: 'Enron'

This award winning play doesn't offer a lecture on corporate madness but an ultra-theatrical demonstration of it at work. One of the most infamous scandals in financial history is transformed into a theatrical epic as we follow the bankruptcy of Texan energy giant, Enron.

Mixing classical tragedy with savage comedy, the play follows a group of flawed men and women in a narrative of greed and loss, reviewing the tumultuous 1990s and casting new light on the financial turmoil in which the world still finds itself.

By Lucy Prebble.

Please note: contains strong language. Not suitable for children.

Directed by Jess Hadleigh.

Tickets: £12 Adult can be booked online from the theatre.
