Does the power of the word still hold strong in a world ruled by Twitter?
Have the vessels of ideas, the carriers of argument, the components of poetry, the language that makes us human - seemingly lost their strength in the time of reduced attention span?
Historian, critic, journalist and broadcaster Simon Schama has been living in a house of words for over fifty years. He has orchestrated a symphony of words in grand novels and snappy essays; from live comedy in Chicago to cooking shows on TV. He now has a brand new body of work on all manner of subjects from Leonard Cohen to Falstaff and populism to pomegranates.
Experience his words live on stage with Simon Schama: The Wordy Tour at the Theatre Royal Haymarket this June for a very special one-off performance.

As interesting as Simon Shama’s historical insights and anecdotes are, the real star of this show is his own personal history. Quintessentially English and a little eccentric in the best sense, his views on life are deeply informed by both his own families history and the times in which he and his generation have lived. That revolutionary post war generation who experienced the birth of Rock n Roll, civil rights and the anti war movement and went on to fundamentally change the world into which they were born. He sighs at the reactionary backlash that Trump and Farage represent but confidently declares that words will win out against the tribal screams of those reactionaries. His personal, historical and Jewish perspective on history is both engaging and illuminating. Highly recommended!
