NICK DARKE'S new play, The Riot, receives its world premiere next year in a co-production with the Royal National Theatre and Kneehigh Theatre of Cornwall.

Royal National Theatre, Cottlesloe, South Bank, London SE1 (0171-452 3000) opens 11 Feb
TO BE STYLED way-outside the parameters of Cool Britannia is one of the original qualities of Reef (right). Suffice to say, no pretty PC, gender- conscious frontman would be seen dead on stage in their greasy, long-haired, grunting state. Catch them on tour, supported by Symposium.
