Elliot Steel: Work In Progress

Elliot has done a sober stint, completed a Roast Battle with his dad and got merked in a Muay Thai fight. This is as good as toxic masculinity gets.

HMS Pinafore | Charles Court Opera

Charles Court Opera are delighted to present a fresh take on HMS Pinafore, the earliest enduring success of Gilbert and Sullivan’s famous collaboration which remains a firm favourite with audiences worldwide. It contains some of Sullivan’s sunniest music and tells the story of Josephine the Captain’s daughter and her love for a lowly sailor Ralph Rackstraw, despite being promised in marriage to the First Lord of the Admiralty, Sir Joseph Porter.

Ships in the Night | Mother River, Father River

Daughter of a fortune-teller, granddaughter of a woman who returned from the dead, storyteller Olivia Armstrong is a weaver of tales, a mistress of enchantment who has been captivating audiences for over ten years. Everywhere from pubs to palaces, rivers to ruins, she tells wonder tales from around the world, myths and legends of the British Isles, and strange stories from the secret corners of the city.

Olivia will tell the story of the Cutty Sark, Queen of the Seas herself and legends of Old Father Thames.

Pirates of Penzance at Cutty Sark

Buckle your swash and enjoy an evening packed full of sentimental pirates, blundering policemen, absurd adventures, improbable paradoxes - and realistic women.  A cocktail of Victorian light party fun with a twist of Merry Opera.

The Pirates of Penzance remains to this day one of Gilbert and Sullivan's most beloved operas. Comical, tender and musically rich, this rendition of The Pirates of Penzance is directed by John Ramster, who most recently directed Wagner’s Flying Dutchman in Norway. 

Ships in the Night | Salty Stories, Shanties and Selkies

"Ships that pass in the night, and speak each other in passing, Only a signal shown and a distant voice in the darkness; So on the ocean of life, we pass and speak one another, Only a look and a voice, then darkness again and a silence."Longfellow

Daughter of a fortune-teller, granddaughter of a woman who returned from the dead, storyteller Olivia Armstrong is a weaver of tales, a mistress of enchantment who has been captivating audiences for over ten years.

The tangled net of trawler fishing

When you don’t live by the sea, it’s easy to think that the issues faced by fishermen don’t affect you.

To see the bigger picture, we caught up with Smoking Apples Theatre, whose new show 'In Our Hands' explores life from the perspective of a Cornish trawlerman as he struggles with crippling legislation, quota distribution and big corporations which leave him with rising debts. Their award-winning performance, coming soon to the Cutty Sark Theatre, shows us how the fisherman's story affects us all.
