The Camden Chapel

Culture

Marathon For You at The Hen and Chickens Theatre (Camden Fringe)

MFY is a love letter to Northern lasses and their steely determination when times get tough. The play has northern beginnings- In 2017 it was selected for Powerhouse Plays (The Hope Mill Theatre, Manchester) and then performed to a sold out crowd at The Carriage Works in the writer’s hometown of Leeds. 

Curator’s tour: Egyptian Antiquities at Freud Museum London

Freud Museum London

 

Freud was an avid collector of antiquities and one of the most prominent features of his collection is of Egyptian artefacts which occupy integral parts of his famous study and desk.

Get up close to some of these unique curios from Freud’s 2500-piece collection housed at the Freud Museum with an intimate tour from our curatorial team and explore the exhibition before opening hours.

The Net at the Tristian Bates Theatre (Camden Fringe)

The Net

 

The Net: An all-female ensemble story tackling border conflicts, war, and finding home. 
Mixing poetic choral monologues and cutting dialogue, ‘The Net’ brings a new dimension to the age-old story of war by placing women at the centre, while exposing how utterly foolish the divides we create are. It is an ensemble piece that aims to highlight women of all different backgrounds and ages: from fourteen to seventy. The play uses the personal stories of these four women and their interactions with each other to interrogate larger political themes.
