Radius’s regular annual event is the weekend of the Annual General Meeting, when we provide drama and social opportunities in addition to the meeting itself. We also mount one-off events such as launches for new plays, lectures, receptions and workshops. See the home page for a list of forthcoming events. More details will be in the next issue of Radius Performing.

The theatre is one of the most expressive and useful vehicles for the edification of a country's people, and a barometer that marks the country's greatness or declines. A sensitive theatre . . .  can alter a people's sensibility in just a few years, while a decadent theatre where hooves have taken the place of wings can cheapen and lull to sleep an entire nation. Federico Garcia Lorca, 1898-1936
