Dead Static

This cosy little theatre sits above the Hen and Chickens Theatre Bar on Higbury Corner and has been going for more than 25 years.

With a full programme of productions there is no shortage of choice, and this sci-fi comedy – about two strangers who wake up on an interstellar ship only to bicker and feud as they face impending oblivion – is sure to delight both Red Dwarf fans and those who think SF is for virginal geeks living at home.

Good Morning, Alamo!

Tabard Theatre opened above its accompanying pub in 1985. It hosts comedy shows and is know for its theatrical productions, many of which have gone on to acclaim on larger stages.

This world premiere by New York and London playwright and director Mark Giesser is a drama-satire about the truth behind the complex battle at the Alamo in Mexico, 1835.

Far from the  Disney or John Wayne version and certainly not a GOP-pleasing tale of the nation’s birth.

Jan 16-Feb 9, 7.30pm, £12+
