      Event: Cuban Artist Wifredo Lam Exhibition

      Location: Tate Modern, SE1

      Tate Modern has a exhibition on Wifredo Lam, the 20th-century Cuban modernist, whose work is so often compared to Pablo Picasso. This is the first museum exhibition of Lam’s work in London since 1952, and is a major retrospective covering 50 years of the artist’s career.

      Lam’s modernist art spans 20th-century traditions including Cubism and Surrealism, mixed with Afro-Cuban imagery. The artist was born and brought up in central Cuba, one of eight children of a Chinese immigrant father and Cuban mother of Spanish and African descent. As an adult Lam moved first to Havana, then Madrid in 1923 to study art. He stayed in Spain for 15 years, where he met and married his wife with whom he had a son, both of whom he lost to tuberculosis in 1931. He went on to fight for the Republican side in the Spanish Civil War, eventually fleeing to France in 1938 when Barcelona fell to Franco.

      Event: The Libertine on the West End Stage

      Location: Theatre Royal Haymarket, SW1

      Dominic Cooper takes on the notoriously cocksure and dissolute but dashing Earl of Rochester on stage this autumn, playing the starring role in The Libertine by Stephen Jeffreys.

      It is the true story of John Wilmot, the second Earl of Rochester — a charismatic poet, playwright and libertine famous for his bawdy, obscene, verse who satirised Charles II’s Restoration court.

      Event: The Tempest, Henry IV and Julius Caesar

      Location: Donmar King’s Cross, N1

      The Donmar Warehouse is staging a new production of The Tempest, alongside revivals of Julius Caesar and Henry IV, with all-female casts, starring Dame Harriet Walter.

      The trilogy of plays is being performed at a new purpose-built 420-seat temporary theatre in the round at King’s Cross, put up for the plays’ 13-week run.

      Event: King Lear at the Old Vic

      Location: Old Vic Theatre, SE1

      Glenda Jackson returns to the stage after 25 years to play King Lear in Shakespeare’s tragic history play.

      Jackson, who swapped drama for politics a quarter of a century ago when she was elected as member of parliament for Hampstead, has returned to acting since retiring from the House of Commons last year.

      The actress has played many of Shakespeare’s heroines in the past for the Royal Shakespeare Company, and memorably starred in the 1971 BBC series Elizabeth R.

    • from 14/11/2016 to 18/02/2017
      Event: Theatre: Buried Child

      Location: Trafalgar Studios, SW1

      Buried Child is about despair in America. And, although perhaps not the most cheerful of plays, it is both funny and darkly macabre, and likely to be worth the misery just to see the very compelling Ed Harris and his real-life wife Amy Madigan play a desperately unhappy couple on stage.

      The Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Sam Shepard is set in 1979, as the US struggles with economic slowdown and political unrest. The story is about a dysfunctional family from rural Illinois, farmers whose land is barren and family broken by tragedy, drink and a family secret.
