Theater of War Productions Presents Virtual Event: Oedipus The King
by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | August 26, 2020
The Oedipus Project presents dramatic readings by acclaimed actors of Sophocles’ Oedipus the King as a catalyst for powerful, guided conversations about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic upon individuals, families, and communities. Oedipus the King is a timeless story about arrogant leadership, ignored prophecy, and a pestilence that ravages the city of Thebes. At the time the play was first performed in 429 BC, the audience would have been reeling in the wake of a plague. Seen through this lens, Oedipus the King seems as relevant now as it was in its own time.
This special live event will feature performances by Kathryn Hunter, Damian Lewis, Lesley Sharp, Clarke Peters, Jason Isaacs, Nyasha Hatendi, Brian F. O’Byrne, and Nick Holder. Translated, directed and facilitated by Bryan Doerries.
The Zoom link to the free event will be distributed and available to registered attendees starting two days prior to the event. You must register for free tickets here.

Easter Monday Family Race Day
by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | February 26, 2020
To celebrate the upcoming release of the new movie Dream Horse, which is based on the true story of a horse named Dream Alliance, the legendary horse himself will return 10 years later as Guest of Honor and parade in the winner’s enclosure at Chepstow Race Course on Monday, April 13, 2020. He is one of the most celebrated horses in racing, bred on an allotment, who went on to win the biggest race in Wales, the Coral Welsh Grand National, 2009. The retired champ will hopefully be available to meet his fans throughout the day.
Dream Horse is inspired by Dream Alliance’s historic win and stars Damian Lewis, Toni Collette, Owen Teale and Joanna Page. Get ready for the feel-good film of the spring, as Dream Horse hits UK cinemas on April 17, shortly after Chepstow’s family fun day to coincide with the launch of the movie.
Chepstow’s gates open at 12:00 p.m., with first race at 2:00 p.m. and last race at 5:30 p.m. Children aged 17 and under enter free. To join in on the popular Easter Monday Family Race Day and for more information about tickets, please visit Chepstow Racing and Events here.
