‘Cathy’ Review – Soho Theatre

So here’s something we recommend – not because of the strident ‘life’s tough if you’re homeless’ message, not because of the irony that there are apparently more people employed in homeless charities than there are homeless – or that the money London homeless charities receive each year would easily pay to accommodate all the London […]

‘The Hound of the Baskervilles’ Review – Jermyn Street Theatre

‘The Hound of the Baskervilles’ Review – Jermyn Street Theatre

The Hound of the Baskervilles – another hit for the Jermyn Street Theatre but this time, with a big smile on it’s face! Ibsen may be fun for you more erudite theatre goers and no doubt ‘Blinding Light‘ and ‘Miss Julie‘ deserved their rave reviews and liberally scattered star ratings but you know what – […]

‘Dear Brutus’ Review – Southwark Playhouse

‘Dear Brutus’ Review – Southwark Playhouse

So here’s the thing. Some old guy invites you and your relevant other down to his place for a week of midsummer frolics. And you go – even though you don’t know who he is. Unbeknown to you, and on demand, he can summon a magic wood (think M Night Shyamalan’s Covington wood but rather […]

Alligators

Funny how fake news seems to dictate the agenda. We don’t care if what we read is true. All we want is to be entertained and engaged sympathetically to our prejudices and proclivities. If what you tell us is true – fine. If it’s not, who cares. ‘Child slaves forced to make cheap clothes on […]

Nice Fish – groping for trout in a peculiar river.

Nice Fish – groping for trout in a peculiar river.

What is with the bloody honours system atm eh? There I am watching a bit of news so I can pretend I’m a bit grown up and give a damn – and in a dimpsy light up pops this fellow, pale as if fluorescent is as near to sunlight as he’s ever got, and he […]

The Cause

The Cause

By Hannah Phillips Saturday morning, in the local bookies: The Miracle Stags vs. the Black Hand. Who would you put your money on? Jeremy James’ debut play at Jermyn Street Theatre is one of zealotry, following two contrasting conspirator groups (four young Hungarian artists vs. Serbian nationalists) working towards the same cause – to kill […]

RED Women’s Theatre Award

RED Women’s Theatre Award

By Hannah Phillips Greenwich Theatre will be staging its own revolution on Sunday 6th March, for the launch of the inaugural RED Women’s Theatre Award, honouring female playwrights working to break a leg largely male-dominated industry. It’s all the idea of playwright Effie Samara, whose current research at the University of Glasgow is focused on the potential […]

Playboy of the Western World

Playboy of the Western World

By Chris Parkinson You do wonder whether anyone rioting at the first production of JM Synge’s ‘Playboy of the Western World’ back in 1907 had actually even seen the play. If the thing of mellifluous and comedic beauty crafted for us by Folie a Deux at The Southwark Playhouse is a guide, the rioters were […]

A Midsummer’s Night Gumbo

A Midsummer’s Night Gumbo

  Well, that was fun! Ruby in the Dust Theatre Company certainly made us ‘turn away our eyes to seek new friends and stranger companies’ last night with their stupidly approachable Louisiana steeped revisioning of the bardilicious classic. Here was a hot steaming gumbo of a piece – hell, we even sat in New Orleans’ […]
