In a madly comic performance pitching modern anti-immigration dogma against a wry wink from the ancient world, celebrated political theatre artist Evi Stamatiou satirizes the British Government’s ironic position – on the one hand refusing to return the Greek marbles (here represented by Stamatiou’s touching embodiment of a lone female statue), and on the other, unceremoniously resisting the arrival of the unwanted Greek, presented in ribald comic form as Rita, an economic migrant wishing to stay in Blighty. Heralded as creating “a world of bubbly satire”, Stamatiou punctures the po-faced indifference of David Cameron and others, and presents Rita’s desire to remain and the marbles’ desire to leave as a playful, but direct challenge to the questionable status quo.

After a successful run at The Edinburgh Festival and Monomaffia Festival in Estonia, this hilarious show will ruffle feathers in London for the first time 6 days after the EU referendum. Whatever Britain decides, what will happen to Rita and the statue? Are they in or out?

Rosemary Branch Theatre

The Rosemary Branch was once a Victorian music hall, and so theatre and performance are soaked into its beams and rafters. The legend goes that such greats as Charlie Chaplin, Marie Lloyd and many others performed here. The Rosemary Branch Theatre is managed by interactive performance company Unattended Items, who take over as residents from June 2016. Unattended Items is led by artistic directors Genevieve Taricco and Scarlett Plouviez Comnas, and you can see what else the transatlantic duo are up to at 2016 marked the 20 year anniversary of Cecilia Darker and Cleo Sylvestre as artistic directors of the theatre, who have now both decided to take a back seat in order to pursue New Adventures. Under their stewardship, the Rosie has blossomed – winning Best Fringe Theatre Award (2010) from Fringe Report, Best Neighbourhood Theatre Silver Award from Smooth FM, and Most Welcoming Theatre (2013 & 2016) from the Off West End Awards. They have worked tirelessly for two decades to provide an eclectic mix of entertainment, and to provide a safe and supportive place for all areas of emerging talent.
