Presented by Homo Promos
1936 : Fishing

Saturday 10th September at 8.30

At the Tower Theatre, Stoke Newington

Tickets £15/£10 Concessions

A shy and lonely boy, artistic in a sporty school.; he has a secret.

An old and lonely man, once famous, once greatly loved; he too has a secret.

A protective, blinkered mother, determined to find the truth.

When they collide, the result is tragedy.

The opera explores themes of legacy and inheritance down the ages, for good or ill.  What kind of shadow will your life cast? 1936: Fishing is Episode 7 of a 17-part epic musical cycle, A Gay Century, and the first part to be performed.  It premieres at the Tete-a-Tete Opera Festival [Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival 2022 | The Cockpit] on Sept 4th.

Covid Security

Although we no longer require the use of face-coverings in our theatre, and do not ask for proof of a negative test or vaccination status, we recognise that Covid-19 still represents a threat to many of our more vulnerable audience members. We therefore ask that social distancing is observed whenever possible, and that fellow audience members’ concerns are respected.
