The Playlist: Week Three

It’s week three and a week of new releases and new perspectives on The Playlist. Ridley Scott’s new sci-fi blockbuster ‘The Martian’ is to be released this week featuring Matt Damon as a quirky botanist who becomes stranded on mars forced to survive with only a month’s worth of supplies. From Mars’ barren climate to the infertility of T.S Eliot’s ‘The Waste Land’ which has been rehearsed for the stage as the first Mermaids play of the semester. The multiple perspectives of Eliot’s poem leads toward the book of the week ‘The Girl on the Train’ in which the protagonist, who gets on the train everyday to pretend she’s still employed, tries to piece together the night a girl went missing. Also attempting to offer a different perspective is The Kennedys, the new series is based on Emma Kennedy’s life and her best-selling memoir about growing up on a Stevenage council estate in the 70’s. And if you’re craving the big nights of Freshers’ week, Music is Love are offering up something bigger and better this week as they present a night of electronic/ techno music in Club 601 which cannot be missed.
