[ What's on this week ]

Our pick of this week's community and cultural events:

JUDGEMENT BY BARRY COLLINS AT THE UNION THEATRE
Tuesday 26 to Saturday 30 August
7.30pm at the Union Theatre, Union Street; £7
Judgement by Barry Collins was first given an
experimental reading by Peter O'Toole in 1974. It was
finally presented by the 'National' theatre as part of
an experimental season in a production directed by Sir
Peter Hall. The play is based upon an incident during
the Second World War. The location was a hillside
monastery in southern Poland.
A number of Soviet Officers, captured by the retreating
German army were left abandoned in a cell in the
monastery. Two of the men survived by killing and
eventually devouring their companions.
Judgement is dramatic re-imagining of these events,
told by one of the survivors.
Gabriel Butler- Lewis, having graduated from RADA,
takes the role of Captain Andrei Vukhov in this
powerful descent into the dark heart of tragedy.
Judgement also marks the British stage debut of polish
director Justina Rolny.
