    The Butterfly's Spell

    A young poet beetle falls in love with an injured butterfly, a creature from outside his own realm. The other insects around him are disturbed: some try to persuade him to be sensible and remain in his own sphere, but others realise that the need to follow one’s heart’s desire, into the imagination, may be the only way to freedom. Lorca’s first play is a symbolist masterpiece, exploring many of the characteristic themes, of forbidden love and the imminence of death, that infuse his later work.

    Richmond Film Society Presents ‘A Fantastic Woman’

    Richmond Film Society’s 56th Season opens at The Exchange with the 2018 Foreign Language Oscar winner, ‘A Fantastic Woman’.

    Marina, a young transgender woman finds herself viewed with suspicion by both the authorities and blood relatives when her older lover dies unexpectedly. She is traumatised but this is just the beginning of her troubles as she tries to deal with the legal and familial fallout following his death. Instead of being comforted in a time of grief, she is shunned and criminalised.

    A stunning and shocking story set against the background of contemporary Chilean society. At the same time subtle and tender, ‘A Fantastic Woman’ handles its timely, sensitive subject matter with care and leaves many memorable scenes in the mind long after the picture has run its course.

    Hogarth's Progress

    Set in an imagined version of eighteenth century London, Hogarth’s Progress is a riotous double bill of plays following one of Britain’s most celebrated artists on two spectacularly wild days and nights – one at the beginning of his career and one at the end.

    The plays explore the extraordinary life of William Hogarth and the commercialisation of art in a time that saw British culture spring from the drawing rooms of the wealthy into ordinary houses across the country. Filled with political satire, boisterous romps and sleazy characters, Hogarth’s Progress promises to be an extraordinary theatrical event not to be missed.
     
    The double bill begins with the first major revival of The Art of Success, which was first performed by the RSC in 1986 before transferring to the Barbican and New York. Compressing the artist’s ascent to fame into a single, action-filled night, Dear follows a larger-than-life Hogarth as he mingles with famous playwrights and artists, royalty and prostitutes, prime ministers and murderesses creating an exceedingly imaginative, thoroughly scurrilous, but nonetheless highly entertaining portrait of a world on the brink of transformation. The second play, The Taste of the Town, catches up with Hogarth 30 years later, finding him now hugely successful, yet still at odds with the world and with himself. Old and tired he may be, but there’s always time for one more fight.

As well as their own original material, they not only know and perform the work of the greats, ranging from Howling’ Wolf, John Lee Hooker through to Sonny Boy Williamson, but they played alongside them. A live acoustic set by this dynamic duo is an occasion you’ll remember and if you’re a true Blues fan, everything you need is here.
