Slung Low, the team behind Anthology at Liverpool's Everyman, is one; and Unlimited, making its first children's show – the ambitious Mission To Mars at Wimbledon's Polka – is another.
And once Everyman is marginalised, they will carry on down their destructive path, making the UK into Europe's Zimbabwe.
Roth's latest book Everyman is wonderfully wrought.
In an exclusive interview with BookBrowse, Louise Dean talks about herself and her three books, Becoming Strangers, This Human Season and the book that she's currently working on; and offers pithy but inspiring advice to aspiring authors.
And seemingly everyone in publishing wants to get their mitts on Philip Roth's new novel, with the excellent Rothian title Everyman (due out from Harcourt in May).
Roth believes we all face death alone and his Everyman is utterly alone.
For all its diminutive scale, this is not a story of The Hero in Everyman ™.
Everyman is at-last forsaken by Beauty, and Power and Wealth, and all the other allegorical figures, and is left alone to face Desolation and the Judgment of Heaven, with only Good Deeds to befriend him.
While the word Everyman has been tossed around rather loosely for the past 500 years or so, Richter, with his pillowy physique, Illinois inflections, and "Howdy, neighbor!" manner, actually fits the bill.
