Ballad of the Burning StarThe award-winning Ballad of the Burning Star by Theatre Ad Infinitum presents a cabaret-style performance satirising Israel's internal conflicts and contradictions. This "flamboyant satirical drag show", best described as a "theatrical hand grenade" (Lyn Gardner, The Guardian), comes to the Battersea Arts Centre for a three-week run as part of a UK-wide tour this spring. Theatre Ad Infinitum have come up with something completely different from their critically acclaimed 'Translunar Paradise', a smash hit at the Edinburgh fringe, and have taken a risk with this cross-dressed, camped up exploration of the social and political terrain of Israel, and with it they have produced an equally exciting and compelling piece of theatre.
