GET YOUR CULTURE FIX: DREAM AT THE RSC
This weekend, the RSC debuts its latest virtual performance, inspired by A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Set in a virtual midsummer forest, the play tells the story of Puck and four sprites – Cobweb, Mustardseed, Peaseblossom and Moth. With the help of Puck, and the other forest creatures, they must regrow the forest after a huge storm hits, but they only have until daybreak before the enchanted spell breaks. Using state-of-the-art technology, the performance uses gaming technology and an interactive symphonic score that reacts to the actors’ movements. Dream has taken two years to research and develop, so we’re expecting big things. There are performances on Saturday 13th March at 8pm or Sunday 14th March at 6pm. Tickets cost £10.

Deliveries are made every Wednesday to Saturday until 10pm – ideal for sorting out last-minute drinks – to selected SW postcodes with a £20 minimum order.

BINGEWATCH THIS NEW NETFLIX SERIES: MURDER AMONG THE MORMONS
This true-crime documentary dropped on Netflix last week. Murder Among the Mormons is a three-part series about a trio of bombings and murders in 1985 that shocked Salt Lake City’s Mormon community. The killings sent further shockwaves through the community when a trove of early Mormon letters and diaries were found destroyed in the vehicle of one of the victims, including the infamous White Salamander Letter – an artifact whose contents shook the very foundations of Mormonism. Directed by Jared Hess and Tyler Measom, this is a fascinating insight into the Mormon community.
