Speak Up: the Art of Protest
Our thoughts are with everyone affected by the shocking events in London Bridge last night.
The cabaret event at the Donmar this evening will go ahead as planned.
If you have booked tickets for this event, please note there will be bag checks as you enter the theatre. Please ensure you arrive in plenty of time for the 7pm start. You can check latest travel advice at www.tfl.gov.uk.
We ask that you do not bring large bags or rucksacks, and do not leave any of your belongings unattended in the theatre at any time.
For one night only, the Donmar Warehouse will present an entertaining, invigorating and eclectic evening of cabaret, exploring the art of protest.
We have gathered a crack team of familiar faces from Donmar shows, performing shoulder to shoulder with brilliant artists from the worlds of music, comedy, variety and spoken word.
Over two hours, these performers will unite to dig into the ongoing relationship between art and protest. They will also make time to show off a bit, and demonstrate how talented they are. When it comes to creating change, art can only ever be part of the story. But when it comes to telling that story, there’s nothing better. So in a small corner of Covent Garden on Sunday 4 June, some exquisite voices will be passionately raised.
Proceeds from the evening will go towards our YOUNG+FREE scheme, which enables young people aged 25 and under to attend theatre for free. We firmly believe in the power of theatre and art to give voice and change people’s lives. We hope you will PAY IT FORWARD and share your evening with the next generation by making a donation.
The evening will be hosted by Lenny Henry and Giles Terera, with acts including Dickie Beau, Jackie Clune, Barb Jungr, Lemn Sissay and Mark Thomas.
More details of our programme will be announced here soon. Follow us on Twitter to be the first in the know @DonmarWarehouse.
