This April, expect a selection of Indian cinema curated by Shai Heredia at the Oldham Theatre! While the world reels through a pandemic and the spectre of death and illness haunts us, the power and the lack of empathy of nation states has been put under the spotlight for all to see. With a focus on India, this series reflects how Indian cinema has endured as a site through which democracy has been imagined and negotiated. With films that address issues of land, labour and human rights through poetry, music and humour, this programme outlines how India has entered one of its most complex and dangerous political periods yet.

But when she faces a challenge she cannot tackle alone, she allies herself with a brilliant and mysterious student. Intensely intimate and deeply moving, this haunting play probes the question of what one person can do for another.
Hailed by The New York Times as “an astonishing new play”, this scintillating two-hander looks at how two brilliant but social misfits connect and bond with each other. Written by award-winning writer Adam Rapp, the beauty of this gripping drama The Sound Inside is that it’s never what you expect.
