Lazarus: David Bowie Falls to Earth

Hailed as ‘baffling’, ‘weird’ and a ‘surrealistic tour-de-force’, you still have the opportunity to see Lazarus, the sequel to The Man Who Fell to Earth. It must surely be one of the most keenly anticipated theatrical events of 2016. After the shock of Bowie’s death, the irony of the title will not be lost on his fans, nor will the theme of the original book, the film by Nicolas Roeg and now its sequel, all of which explore themes of alienation and loneliness – what it is to be stranded on an alien planet. It’s certainly made me want to see the film again. Doubtless it will drive Bowie aficionados to the original book by Walter Tevis, as well. It’s worth a read.

Mumburger by Sarah Kosar concerns the fragmented family life of a celebrated vegan mother, who is dead at the time of the play, but whose presence looms large over disaffected husband Hugh, and their neurotic daughter Tiffany.
