FUELLING POVERTY: OIL, WATER AND CORRUPTION
Monday 19 May
7pm in the Seminar Room at Southwark Cathedral

BeLIEve: STAGED READING AT THE ROSE THEATRE
Wednesday 21 to Friday 24 May
7.30pm at the Rose Theatre Exhibition, Park Street; £5
from 020 7732 7732.
'BeLIEve' is a new play by Tracy Keeling whose previous
work has premiered in both the Spoleto Festival and the
New York Fringe Festival. 'BeLIEve' is a one act play
that follows the journey of three characters trapped in
an underground train with each other as the only chance
for possible salvation.  A battle ensues as they fight
it out for the position of shepherd or sheep.  Are we
faithful in our hope or hopeful in our faith? When push
comes to shove, be careful taking sides.  Or that's
what they'd have one beLIEve... Will the ghosts of the
Rose applaud Keeling and her new play? Come along and
see.

UNDER COVERS AT THE OLD OPERATING THEATRE
Thursday 22-Saturday 24 & Wednesday 28-Saturday 31 May
?? at the Old Operating Theatre, 9a St Thomas' Street;
£8 (conc £6) from  020 7955 4791
Three new plays staged in one of London's most
intriguing interiors. By Melanie Challenger, directed
by James Bellorini. Set over three centuries in the
same London house this trilogy of plays moves from the
brutality of working class Victorian life to the heyday
of the sixties and finally to student life in the
present day. When a violent event takes place, the
centuries and the lives of those inhabiting the room
become forever bound together.
