News from the Arts centre – Don John

Writing about web page

This production promises to be visually stunning, anarchic and intoxicating.

"If theatre were a box of chocolates, then this would be the champagne truffle in a dark chocolate robe." The Guardian

A new production coming to the Arts Centre in February from Kneehigh Theartre, "dangerous, naughty and irresistible, Don John is a vessel for all our desires"

Kneehigh are a driving force in contemporary British theatre. Their joyous, compelling and physical storytelling has entranced audiences throughout the UK with productions including Tristan And Yseult, Nights At The Circus, Rapunzel and Cymbeline.

New Database Trials

Writing about web page

The University is running a number of trial databases. Please feel free to explore and email Steve Barber with any thoughts or suggestions. Titles include Caribbean Literature and Latino Literature.

Caribbean Literature is a searchable collection of poetry and fiction produced in the region during the 19th and 20th centuries. Among the titles selected by our editors are numerous rare and hard-to-find works written in English, French, Spanish, Dutch, and various Creole languages. Future releases will also feature journals, reference works, and interviews with key writers.

Latino Literature brings together more than 100,000 pages of poetry, fiction, and drama written in English and Spanish by hundreds of Chicano, Cuban, Puerto Rican, Dominican, and other Latin authors working in the United States. Among the gems of the collection are nearly 800 items (poems, novels, and plays) that have never been published before.

The trials page can be accessed from here
