26 September - 8 October 2023

A co-production with Carmen Collective

in collaboration with LSE Library



1968. 3000 students occupy the London School of Economics, in the most significant act of protest in a generation.


2023. Two theatre-makers try to work out what radical change means today, searching through archives, photos, first-hand accounts.


Everything’s connected: from the Prague Spring to MLK Jr’s murder, the Paris riots to the Nigerian Civil War, and it’s all converging here and now.


Lessons on Revolution is a daring new piece of documentary theatre. It is a gripping and immersive journey through global and personal history which asks: in a new age of inequality and injustice, how can the voices of the past give us hope?
