Islington has a host of theatres that generally have a very good standard. I thought as it's winter and the cold is starting to bite that you may be more interested in some indoor activities. So here are some of the local theatres and what they're showing this January.
Almedia is showing the ghost story The Turn of the Screw through January until the 16th March directed by Lindsay
At The Kings Head Theatre you can catch Cross Purpose another dark tale directed by Stephen Whitson
Matthew Bourne’s gothic Sleeping Beauty is showing at Sadlers Wells. Also at Sadlers Wells you can catch Wild Card, Tango Fire and Anjin: The Shogun and The English Samurai
The Pleasance Theatre on North Road is showing Fluids starting tomorrow until the 20th. Also it’s worth having a look at their comedy line up over the next few weeks if you’re looking for something a little more light hearted than the above. Not sure what it is about January and winter but theatre’s seem to only put on dark shows, maybe it’s just their way of getting in the winter mood.
The Old Red Line has two shows in January. Overruled (three short comedies) is running until 19th January. The Dreamer Examines His Pillow starts on Tuesday 22nd January and runs until Saturday 16th February
Finally at Barbican you have Companhia de Danca Deborah Colker Tatyana which starts on 31st January and runs until 9th February
I think I’ve covered all the main theatres in Islington but please do let me know if there are any I’ve forgotten
