“It is a godsend for Drama teachers as it is so bespoke and in-tune with what they must guide the students to do. I don’t know of any other company that does this.”

Teacher feedback

Drive Your Plow Over The Bones Of The Dead

Based on Nobel Prize winning author Olga Tokarczuk’s novel of the same name, Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead is a new work for theatre conceived and directed by Simon McBurney. Tokarczuk’s controversial, violent, genre defying novel – part thriller, part comedy, and part blistering poetic manifesto for the rights of animals and the environment – caused an uproar in its native Poland upon publication.

You can also take a look at our free Resource Pack or visit the Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead production page for more information.

Running time: 2 hours 58 minutes

Access: Captions available 

Age Guidance: 12+ (Contains moments of intense bright lights, haze and gunshots. There is also swearing, nudity, violence and the staged mistreatment of animals)

A Disappearing Number

This multi-award winning performance, directed by Simon McBurney, tells the true story of the collaboration between Cambridge professor GH Hardy and self-taught mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan from Chennai in India, who made some of the most important mathematical discoveries of the 20th century.
