It’s been a great re-opening season for the New Diorama, the small but hugely influential Euston Road theatre. Everything this theatre does is done with care and thoughtfulness, whether it’s the current remount of Katie Mitchell’s Little Scratch or the transfer of Operation Mincemeat to the West End. The venue is in mischievous mood for its latest, a late-night piece penned by Nina Segal inspired by freedom of information requests made to uncover the level of government interference in cultural organisations and arts funding. The information gleaned has now been turned into a show. You will be laughing, but the government won’t. Maybe. Because, as the theatre says, "there are things we know, but we can’t tell you how we know them."

About War & Culture

In 2022, NDT submitted various freedom of information requests regarding government interference in cultural organisations and arts funding. We did not specify that any information would be used in a show. There are also things we know, but we can’t tell you how we know them. This isn’t a joke, although the show will be funny. Late night. Short run. No press invited. Don’t tell a friend. Written by Nina Segal (Big Guns, O, Island!) and directed by Jess Edwards (Elephant, Hotter/Fitter).
