COMMUNITY WEDNESDAYS AT THE OLD VIC - RESURRECTION BLUES
From Wednesday 15 February
Lambeth and Southwark residents can purchase £5 tickets for
either the matinee or evening performances each Wednesday
throughout the run of Resurrection Blues. Resurrection
Blues, by Arthur Miller, is directed by Robert Altman, the
legendary film-maker, and stars Jane Adams, Neve Campbell,
James Fox, Peter McDonald, Matthew Modine and Maximilian
Schell. Humorous, poetic and thought-provoking, the play
brilliantly satirises misguided global politics and the
predatory nature of a media-saturated culture. This
astonishingly black comedy was completed just a month before
Miller's death. 
Offer exclusive to Lambeth and Southwark residents. Tickets
can only be booked in person at the Box Office at The Old
Vic and you must quote ‘Community Rate’. Proof of address
needed when booking. Offer is subject to availability.
