      Strange and Familiar: Britain as Revealed by International Photographers

      Britain as seen from a foreigner’s perspective. This intriguing exhibition covers life in Britain from the 1930s on, from King George VI’s coronation to images of the London Underground, with pictures by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Frank and Bruce Gilden among others, chosen by the photographer Martin Parr. Catch it before it goes — www.barbican.org.uk/strangeandfamiliar at the Barbican Art Gallery, EC2, until June 19.

      Event: National Theatre: Terence Rattigan’s The Deep Blue Sea

      Location: National Theatre, SE1

      The ever-watchable Helen McCrory stars in the Terence Rattigan play The Deep Blue Sea at the National Theatre over the summer.

      The play reunites McCrory with director Carrie Cracknell, who directed the actress in Medea at the National two years ago.

      McCrory plays tragic postwar heroine Hester Collyer, who at the start of the play is found by her neighbours at her Ladbroke Grove tenement flat after a suicide attempt. Her story unfolds: the tempestuous affair with a former RAF pilot followed by her abandoning her respectable life as the wife of a High Court judge; the cruelty of her new lover, a man damaged by his war experiences; the emotional breakdown and the loneliness as she is rejected.

      Event: Richard III by William Shakespeare

      Location: Almeida Theatre, N1

      Tudor propaganda?

      Ralph Fiennes and Vanessa Redgrave lead a starry production of Richard III at the Almeida Theatre over the summer, directed by the theatre’s artistic director Rupert Goold.

      Whilst Fiennes and Redgrave have not appeared on stage together before, they have acted alongside each other on screen, also doing Shakespeare — in Fiennes’s directorial debut of Coriolanus in 2011.

      Event: Winifred Knights at Dulwich Picture Gallery

      Location: Dulwich Picture Gallery, SE21

      The Dulwich Picture Gallery is hosting the first retrospective of early 20th-century modernist artist Winifred Knights, reuniting her paintings for the first time.

      Winifred Knights’s most famous picture, The Deluge, was painted in 1920 when she was just 21 years old, and it won the Prix de Rome, despite being submitted unfinished. The painting of a biblical scene of panic as women flee The Flood usually hangs in Tate Britain, although it has been lent to the Dulwich Art Gallery for this exhibition. It is often mistaken for a Stanley Spencer.

    • from 10/06/2016 to 09/10/2016
      Event: Serpentine Pavilion and Summer Houses 2016

      Location: Serpentine Gallery, W2

      A sloping wall of giant ice cubes forms the 2016 Serpentine Pavilion by Danish architect Bjarke Ingels.

      Not real ice cubes, you understand, they are made from hollowed out fibreglass bricks, piled up and up into a soaring sculpture, described as an “unzipped wall”. Ingels’s design promises to be “modular yet sculptural, both transparent and opaque, both solid box and blob”.
