Come and hide in the shadows, dance with our very own Gilda or find our own Third Man. epoch present an immersion through time and screen with three new plays from some of London’s most exciting theatre companies, all followed by our token late night reveling. Put on your Hat and Mac, leave your cereal box family behind and learn that even moral men can be manipulated.

"You know what the fellow said – in Italy, for thirty years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance.

In Switzerland, they had brotherly love, they had five hundred years of democracy and peace – and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock"

- Harry Lime / Orson Welles (The Third Man)
