Lorca would be 100 years old this year if he hadn't been shot in 1936. Thanks a lot, Franco. To celebrate the centenary of this extraordinary artist, everyone from poets to producers are rushing around unearthing forgotten fragments and mounting major revivals of his work. Theatre audiences around the country can look forward to I Weep at My Piano, the latest extravanganza from Told by an Idiot. Hayley Carmichael will play Lorca in a surreal theatrical sandwich between Dali and Bunuel. Meanwhile Christopher Bruce is reviving the fantastical dance drama based on Lorca's life and work which he created in 1977 with the massively influential Lindsay Kemp. The tale is told in dance, song, mime and verse and uses the original music of Carlos Miranda and a bullring- type set by the legendary Ralph Koltai. For added Spanish flavour you'll be delighted to learn that this is being sponsored by the sherry people Gonzalez Byass.
