The Barbican Theatre Breaks Convention
The UK based theatre the Barbican takes theater into sleepy territory. Their current show, “Lullaby” is not a black tie event. It’s a pj’s and toothbrush event!

Lullaby is a gentle, slumber show designed to send you to sleep. Bring your pyjamas and toothbrush and pile up the zzz’s at this romantic rock-a-bye nocturne. Book a single, a double or a triple bed and sleep with us on a summer night in the city. Enjoy your reveries as sister songstresses H. Plewis, Harriet Plewis and domestic dreamers Matthew Robins and Tim Spooner create a nod-off narrative of soothing storytelling and choral cradle song.

Lullaby is a moonlit soporific serenade followed by seven hours of slow-wave sleep rounded-off by
breakfast to send you on your way.

So Barbican for pushing the boundaries of what theater can do and where it can go, Give Us Art! salutes you!
