Events Temporarily Postponed
Thu 01 Jan 1970
In response to the developing coronavirus situation in the UK, Exeter Phoenix is currently closed to the public. This is a temporary measure and we are taking this on a month-by-month basis. No events will be taking place during March, and the vast majority of events will be rescheduled for later in the year. We are following government advice and acting in the best interests of our visitors and staff.
Unprecedented closures like this with no confirmed government support will be hugely damaging for charities like Exeter Phoenix and many other sectors. If you are in a position to consider making a donation HERE, we would be extremely grateful.

Motherland is a visceral full bodied dragged up howl of a show exploring nationalism, identity and our ability to speak out.
Some people say its about British values. Some people say its not about intolerance, its about not tolerating intolerance. Some people say they dont mind change but its happening too fast. And what do you say?
In Motherland Jo Tyabji unapolgetically reclaims the voices of politicians, you-tubers, British Indians and OCIs. In an era of India Rising and people Taking Back Britain, this is a show that asks: who are you, first?
Motherland is created and performed by Jo Tyabji (My Name Is My Own and Whats Far is Near Southbank Centre, Lovely Ugly City Almeida).
Produced in association with Milk Presents (BULLISH, JOAN) and supported by Arts Council England, In Good Company, Bush Theatre and Battersea Arts Centre.
Running time: 1 hour, no interval
