The Sirens of Titan, Hilly Fields

Tonight is the first night of the London Bubble's open-air production of The Sirens of Titan in Hilly Fields. If you've had a chance to go, please post your reviews here.


Tickets for the remaining shows (they run until Saturday) are still available although we're pleased to say that they tell us they have sold a lot of tickets to BC readers.

We're reviewing the final night this weekend (we realise that's somewhat pointless, but that's what we do).

Well I've heard there's a man going by the name of "titan" around these parts... and any sirens are always welcome. See you 'up there', Nick!

Two of us went last night and really enjoyed it. The production uses the various spaces really well (there's a bit of Hilly Fields I'd never even noticed and I've lived here ten years!) and to magical effect once it gets dark. The minimal props and effects were clever and funny. There is plenty breaking of the fourth wall and the audience is thoroughly involved in the performance in various ways (don't want to spoil anything so won't elaborate further). We were really lucky to have such a lovely clear evening last night and it was fab to be sitting on the grass with the stars coming out and everyone in a big gang – I imagine it must have been lots of fun for the kids. We are huge Vonnegut fans and this covers his usual themes and styles – I’d like to know what people who aren’t so familiar made of it.

Really wish I could have seen this but I am out of the country at the moment. Not even sure why I`m logging onto BC! Just checking a meteorite hasn´t fallen on Brockley...it hasn`t, has it?

@englishman, no. But someone has installed a non-compliant shop sign which is at least as cataclysmic.

i went to Thursdays performance and it was fantastic . the actors were great and the use of the views and locations was inspired .loved it .

Went last night and almost managed to dodge the rain - just a bit during the interval and a suggestion during on scene. Haven't been to a bubble production for years - this was wonderful and will make parts of hilly fields even more special. . . won't say any more until tomorrow . . .

Whats the difference between a £9 ticket and a £16 one,apart from the obvious £7.

Lep Recorn said...

I think the £9 deal is for unemployed, pensioners, youth etc.

Went on Saturday - enjoyable if a bit am-dram.

Must stop going to the National regualrly - most things are am dram after that....

I also went Saturday and whilst I appreciate what CV says I thought they did very well with limited resources from both a performace and staging perspective.

I not sure who said they went to areas of Hilly Fields they had not been before (mg?) but they were all well know central bits to me so you need to get out more!

No evidence of dogging activity I should add.
