Theatre – Unallocated Seating
Start time: 19:00
After a sell-out show in October, 5x15 returns to EartH, for another evening of stories from the frontier of human experience.
On the line up: the Astronomer Royal Martin Rees leads us into the future to look at the prospects of humanity. Can we survive the rise of AI or is it human stupidity that we should be afraid of? Human Rights lawyer Philippe Sands QC (author of East West Street, and the podcaster behind The Ratline) tells a story that takes us into a Turkish maximum security prison to meet the writer Ahmet Altan. Altan is serving a life sentence for ‘subliminal messaging’ - his profoundly moving memoir, written from jail, is I Will Never See the World Again. And the journalist and activist Bee Rowlatt - chair of the Mary on the Green campaign - takes us into the past, and tells us why we should do more to celebrate one of history’s most neglected icons. Mary Wollstonecraft was a pioneering feminist, author of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, and a local hero, who resided for many years in Newington Green.
