About the Show/Event
Information for Let Me Play The Lion Too at The Pit, Barbican Centre, West End (Play). Acclaimed UK theatre-makers, Told by an Idiot, use their trademark working practices to tackle the lack of diversity on stage in Britain today and affect change in the wider arts infrastructure. In an intensive two week residency in The Pit a group of twelve performers, six of whom have a disability, work with Told by an Idiot to devise a new piece of improvised performance, Let Me Play the Lion too. Let me Play The Lion Too is part of Sky Arts Art 50, a landmark project to commission 50 artworks that will explore what it means to be British in a post-Brexit Britain.
