Cultural events of London

Queer British Art. In London's Tate Gallery, next week, there will be an unusual exhibition dedicated to social prejudices in the past. The exhibition has a certain time frame. One of them - the year 1861 - the date of the abolition of the death penalty for sodomy, and the other - in 1967 - the partial decriminalization of homosexuality. Amazing paintings will tell the guests about prejudices and the shadow of illegality of same-sex love.

Millbank, London, SW1P 4RG. The exhibition will last until October 1st. Working hours are 10:00 - 18:00.

Yerma. The play "Yerma" returns to the theater Young Vic on Monday, August 21st. Australian director Simon Stone breathed life into a classic play about the farmer's wife, who is broken by attempts to get pregnant. The main role plays the charming Billy Piper.

66 The Cut, London, SE1 8LZ. The beginning at 19:30. The ticket price is £ 10- £ 35. The play will be possible to be visited until August 31st.

Robots. The Science Museum invites everyone to visit an unusual exhibition dedicated to robots. Five exhibition halls will tell you about 500 years of development of mechanics and robotics. You can see both the first mechanized figures of 1774, and modern robots, for example, the Japanese Kodomoroid.

Exhibition Rd, London, SW7 2DD. The exhibition will last until the 3rd of September. Working hours are from 10:00 to 18:00. The ticket costs £ 13-15.

Mosquitoes. Olivia Coleman and Olivia Williams will play two sisters in the wildly ambitious play by Lucy Kirkwood, which will be shown at the Royal National Theater. The classic theme about the two sisters, who constantly quarrel. One of them is successful, the other - a total failure. But do not make hasty conclusions, this melodrama is not so simple.

South Bank, London, SE1 9PX. The play will be shown on August 30th and 31st. The ticket price is £ 15- £ 65.

Girl from the North Country. Gloomy, causing memories of the Great Depression, the play by Conor MacPherson is built around the songs of Bob Dylan. The premiere will be held in Old Vic today (August 21st). In the middle of the action is a hotel in Duluth, Minnesota (the hometown of Dylan). The story involves the owner of the hotel Nick Lane, who has a lot of problems, one of which is the dementia of his wife Elizabeth. Also an important role is played by guests and hotel regulars.

103 The Cut, Waterloo Rd, London, SE1 8NB. Ticket price is £ 12-£67.50. Premiere on the 21st of August.

Mrs Orwell. The Old Red Lion Theater invites you to watch a new play about George Orwell's second and very controversial marriage with Sonya Brownwell. The main role plays Cressida Bonas. The play describes very well the relationship between husband and wife, just before Orwell`s death because of tuberculosis

418 St John Street, London, EC1V 4NJ. The play will run until August 26th. The ticket price is £ 18-16.
