Fuel and Theatre Royal Margate would like to invite you to a pre-show debate to talk about national identity, stereotypes, and community before the final night of Will Ademsdale’s brand new show, The Joke (htttp://www.fueltheatre.com/projects/the-joke) at Theatre Royal, Margate.
The debate will include a short provocation from local residents Lana Vanzetta and Dan Thompson about what these issues mean to them, followed by the opportunity for a chaired conversation about the following themes:
- DFL – How do we address our changing community and the possible tensions?
- Place making – making a place your home, migration and community.
- Stereotypes, how do we address nationality and identity through drama and comedy? How does this filter into the everyday, if at all?
Margate House is wheelchair accessible
Following the debate we’d love to invite you to come and see the show and can offer a discount code for £5 tickets by quoting ‘FUEL’ at the Theatre Royal Box Office by phone or in person.
You can view a trailer for the show here (htttp://www.fueltheatre.com/projects/the-joke)
There will be a Theatre Club following the show’s opening night on Thursday 21st April – you can find out more information here (http://theatreroyalmargate.com/margate-theatre-club/)
