Ongoing through October 2, 2016, Barber Institute of Fine Arts. Includes works by outstanding artists such as Piranesi, Charles Meryon and James Abott McNeill Whistler. Bustling alleys and intricate architectural detail, sweeping panoramas of grand public celebrations and towering monuments, these prints and drawings capture the vibrancy and expansion of 17-19th century European cities.
September 9-24, 2016 at The Rep. Jack Worthing and best friend Algernonn Moncrieff hope to marry society’s most eligible ladies, Gwendolen Fairfax and Cecily Cardew. But the courtship is far from straight forward. Double identities, handbag mishaps and hostile encounters with the formidable Lady Bracknell embroil the pair in a web of mistaken identities with hilarious consequences.
October 1-8, 2016, at Birmingham Hippodrome. Enchanting and elemental, a powerful story of a man determined to right past wrongs by all means in his power; intertwines themes of love, loyalty, and loss, punctuated by a comic duo, more than one dastardly conspiracy and a spectacular danced masque featuring gods and spirits.
October 27 - November 12, 2016, Birmingham Repertory Theatre. Something could divide Britain forever. Enoch Powell’s ‘Rivers of Blood’ speech, famously delivered in Birmingham, is the post-war’s most polarising political speech. Chris Hannan’s powerful new play is a searing look at how a politically divided country moves forward in the wake of the crisis.
