I Like This Stuff: Island Medicine - From Pitcairn to Taransay

February 07, 2020

7.30pm

Twenty years ago Dr Roger Stephenson took part in the BBC’s social experiment Castaway 2000, when he and his family spent a year on the remote Scottish island of Taransay, helping to build a self-sufficient community under the gaze of TV cameras.  In this talk Roger will explore what attracts him to islands and what led him to take a year out from his GP practice in Bow to join one of the first reality TV shows. Taking us from the Isle of Man in the Irish Sea to Pitcairn Island in the Pacific and then on to St Helena in the South Atlantic, Roger will share some of the adventures he has had delivering medical care in Britain’s most remote outposts.

Living Room Theatre presents Title & Deed a play by Will Eno

February 14, 2020

Laugh out loud funny one minute, powerfully poignant the next. “Oh would some Power the gift give us, to see ourselves as others see us” (Robert Burns). A stranger who is “not from here” wanders onstage and speaks directly to us, talking about what divides and unites us. His monologue weaves a treasure trove of insights and inventions, leaving us - the audience - the knotty task of disentangling one from the other. Those same threads bind us to this character in a shared sense of jeopardy. We are not him, but is he, in some mirror-like way, us? A play about belonging and difference, timely for our fractured society. Expect an evening in the theatre like no other, prior to touring the UK, Scandinavia and North America.

Performed by Philip Robinson, directed by Polly Whitfield. Suitable for 14+
