About Under the Radar

Back by popular demand after a sold-out run in 2019. Lee, a quick-witted reporter, sets out to write a career-making article on an eccentric inventor, Captain Martin Christensen, and the maiden voyage of his private submarine. The two set off and, before long, the confined space of the vessel becomes a darkly comic microcosm for the conflicts between gender, tradition and modernity. Under the radar these extremes play out, but only one of the passengers will make it back to shore. ​Under the Radar looks to dissect unconscious bias and misogyny, especially relevant in the #MeToo era. Through a sharp, witty and macabre narrative lens, it examines our cultures and traditions and asks how connected they are to the foundations of prejudice. Each Wednesday, the show will be followed by a panel of thought leaders and experts on different themes - supported by the Culture Capital Exchange and the University of West London 1. Representation / Identities: A discussion around the themes of the play; gender, power, consent and violence. 2. Media Ethics: The roles and responsibilities in reporting on violence 3. Creative Writing, Theatre and Performance: Using narrative to examine causes of violence Age Recommendation: 16+ Warnings: Adult themes, swearing, disturbing scenes
