The Venus Papers at Bloomsbury Theatre

  • Bloomsbury Theatre 15-17 Gordon Street London WC1H 0AH United Kingdom (map)

A theatrical poetry show of arrivals, departures, landscapes and journeys, written and performed by Lydia Towsey with live onstage music and vocals by Dave Dhonau and Ola Szmidt and guest poets Joelle Taylor and Lucas Howard.

Co-directed by Rachel Mars and Nick Field.

In this new semi-staged poetry and music show, through the filters of an immigration officer, the tabloids and the general public, Venus experiences what it means to be a 21st century woman - traveler, every-woman, immigrant, outsider - at a time of social, cultural and political turmoil and change

Absolutely spectacular” Poet in the City
