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.

    This unblinking and upsetting debut British film from brothers Daniel and Matthew Wolfe gives us a fateful day and night in the lives of two teenagers hiding in a Yorkshire caravan park. Both, we assume, are on the run from somewhere or someone. L...

    The English feminist Vera Brittain was only 24 at the end of World War I, but had already lived enough life to fill a memoir, ‘Testament of Youth’ (although it took her close to 17 years to write). The book has now been adapted into a beautifully ...

    At its best, this affecting biopic of the cosmos-rattling astrophysicist Stephen Hawking (Eddie Redmayne) smartly avoids schmaltz. Hawking has often seen the dark humour in the disease that began robbing him of his muscular functions as early as h...

    This 1960s-set, US civil-rights drama works brilliantly as both expert historical re-creation and a powerful reflection of what’s happening in the world right now. As recent events in Ferguson, Missouri show, there’s nothing ‘finished’ about the i...

    British filmmaker Peter Strickland (‘Berberian Sound Studio’) is a star student of ’70s Eurotrash: he loves screamy Italian B-movies and the kind of soft-focus lesbian cuddling that used to titillate weirdos when we still had sex cinemas. His abso...

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.
