A new play, The Unexpected Man, at the Barbican has a glass stage set created by architect Justin Bere Associates. The back wall and the floor of the set, depicting a railway carriage, are a combination laminate of toughened and float glass, 25mm thick. While the set remains unchanged throughout the one-act play, the lighting changes to create different moods, says Justin Bere. The set is lit by Hugh Vanstone and designed by Mark Thompson.

These diabolic dancing girls appear on the promotional poster for club record label Xtravaganza’s sponsorship of the Red Hot Aids charity ball.

The ball took place at London’s Royal Festival Hall on Monday.
