UKTW - 25 years online
CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.

New Theory of Evolution - T1824076131

In this new show Rob describes the 150-year controversy in evolutionary theory and explores how the latest science demonstrates that DNA is not destiny. From a Devil's Orchard made by lemon ants, to female buffalo voting which way to go, from Prince Kropotkin escaping a Tsarist dungeon to altruistic vampire bats and Richard Dawkins' postman wrestling naked, Rob Newman argues that co-operation drives evolution more than competition.

No Planet B - The History of the World Backwards - T915722548

Hurtling from 2006 to the Creation Myth of the Neanderthals (via Black Panthers, Shah of Iran, the Women's Movement, Elephant Man, Galileo and Columbus) there has never been a more epic show on the London stage than No Planet B - The History Of The World Backwards. No Planet B - The History Of The World Backwards is a meditation upon the massive social changes which are coming to us all as a result of Peak Oil and Cimate Chaos; and a critique of European power in the world. It's also about loneliness and loss: the story of doomed lovers John and Patches in the London Blitz is passed on from historical character to character, from Thomas Hardy, to Shakespeare to Jesus. Part play, part musical, part stand-up, this is a genre-busting dramatic piece.

From Caliban to the Taliban - 500 Years of Humanitarian Intervention - T0729393951

This is the story of a five hundred year global terror campaign waged with goodwill to all. It starts with a 1609 Bermuda shipwreck and Sir Francis Bacon's Advertisement Touching a Holy War, and takes us to Wordsworth in the Quantocks followed by government spies, to Russia's Archangel and Filipino vampires. The story's happy ending is the United States' good works in Vietnam, Guatemala, El Salvador, Somalia, Chile, Afghanistan and Iraq, which have made the world safe for democracy and given us all that optimism about the future we enjoy so much today.
