Young Marx – Bridge Theatre – From October 18th

The much-anticipated 900-seat Bridge Theatre will launch its first season this month with Young Marx, a new play from Richard Bean and Clive Coleman about the early life of Karl Marx.

Broke, restless and horny, the thirty-two-year-old revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, invective, satiric wit, and child-like emotional illiteracy.

Louise Dahl-Wolfe: A Style of Her Own – Fashion & Textile Museum – From October 20th

Louise Dahl-Wolfe (1895–1989) is one of the most important women fashion photographers of the first part of the 20th century. This new exhibition at the Fashion & Textule Museum is the first major retrospective of her work in the UK, and a key focus of the exhibition is Dahl-Wolfe’s 22 years as leading contributor to Harper’s Bazaar. Considered a pioneer of modern fashion photography, the exhibition highlights how Dahl-Wolfe defined the image of the modern independent post-war woman.

Laika – Unicorn Theatre – Throughout October

Unicorn Theatre presents: Laika  by Bryony Hannah and Avye Leventis

Laika, the space dog: the first living creature to orbit earth. That was in 1957. Today it’s 2057, and Sami lives with his mum. She’s an astronaut and she understands that there could be a better future out in space. But Sami’s life is down here. So now they must face the prospect of letting go, saying goodbye and – just like Laika – head off into the unknown.

A moving sci-fi adventure, inventively and beautifully told using puppetry, movement and music.



Hoopla Comedy Improv Marathon – 20th – 22nd October

Join The Miller on October 20th as they host the launch of Hoopla Impro’s takeover with The Hoopla Improv Marathon.
