Tricycle

London

Kilburn’s compact answer to the Barbican comes in the shape of cinema-cum-theatre, the Tricycle. Aiming to be a one-stop shop for cultured north Londoners it also has a vibrant café and a rolling bill of special events that includes Q&As, comedy and one-off shows. It is, of course, best known for its socially conscious theatre. Passionate and political, the Tricycle Theatre consistently finds original ways to tackle difficult subjects. In the last few years it has pioneered ‘tribunal’ docu-dramas – transcript-based plays that investigate subjects such as the murder of black teenager Stephen Lawrence, and Guantanamo Bay – and is justifiably proud of bringing unheard voices into the mainstream.

    The so-real-it-hurts actress Laura Dern is a movie treasure by now: in 'Wild', she's magically effervescent as a '70s mom, splashing in puddles with her small children and bravely facing abandonment, money woes and illness. She's the soul of the f...

    Only a filmmaker like Clint Eastwood – conservative, patriotic but alive and sensitive to human tragedy – could make a movie about an Iraq War veteran and fill it with doubts, mission anxiety and personal tragedy. ‘American Sniper’ is a superbly s...

After decades of frequenting the Tricycle theatre, I cannot in good conscience continue to do so and I will not renew my membership.  As a Jewish woman, I now find myself totally unwelcome in this independent Arts Venue.  The reason for this is the very recent boycott of the UK Jewish Film Festival.  The UK Jewish Film Festival is totally apolitical.  By demanding that they actively reject funding from the Israeli Embassy, the Tricycle has pushed them into a corner, a Catch 22 if you like, and demanded that they either become political, or they are not welcome in the establishment. This is deeply unfair and was only ever going to end one way.
