The Allusionist @ Urban Lounge

December 5 @ 6:00 PM

$25
The Allusionist comes to Urban Lounge for a special seated event, 12/5/19!

Language is something we humans have to use all the damn time. But, for something so important, we tend not to give much thought to how it works, or why, or what we and our fellow humans are doing with it; and it’s a big, complex mess. Luckily, the award-winning podcast The Allusionist is here to deal with all of that, and turn it into light entertainment laced with facts for you to throw into your next awkward small-talk-at-a-party situation.

New for 2019, the Allusionist live special No Title gets stuck into gender in language, via medieval werewolves, Ms Marvel, and a boring but life-changing incident in a suburban bank. Allusionist host and producer Helen Zaltzman brings her witty, effortlessly informative show to the stage, with musical support from Martin Austwick. Join them for a fascinating and irreverent adventure into the world we make with words.
