new writing, international

Divine Invention


Part performance lecture, part auto-fictional gay memoir, discover this free-wheeling metatheatrical exploration of love through history, art, literature, music, and science by internationally acclaimed Franco-Uruguayan playwright Sergio Blanco (Thebes Land). Sound clever? It is! Interweaving Sergio's first experiences of love with his boxing instructor, the story of Francis Bacon's doomed romance with George Dyer, and an eye-opening journey through the history of love, enjoy this life-affirming new work from one of international theatre's most unique voices. Performed by multi-award winning director, Daniel Goldman, don't miss this new 'collaboration to savour' by 'two masters of the form' (Lyn Gardner).
