The Alternative Village Fete takes place at the South Bank on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th as part of the National Theatre's Watch This Space programme. It's organised by the brilliantly creative Home Live Art and it's free.
One of the things I'm most looking forward to is Theatre 1623's Emergency Shakespeare! which presents four scenes from Shakespeare with an intriguing twist: with the aid of St John Ambulance, they intervene to save the characters involved.
Each scene lasts about twenty minutes as Ophelia is dragged out of the Thames, Othello's epilepsy receives expert attention, Leontes gets some help for his panic attack and the tomb scene from Romeo and Juliet becomes a multiple emergency scenario. It sounds fantastic.
