Kitten in Heels - Adult Panto Review

In the last few years, you'd be forgiven for thinking there is a new theatrical phenomenon kicking off across London -the adult panto. All the frivolous, anarchic fun you remember from your childhood but, well, a bit ruder.

SCARBOROUGH, Cockpit Theatre - Review

In recent months, the National Youth Theatre has put on Consensual, a play that took the familiar theme of teacher having a relationship with a pupil. One of the many things that distinguished it was it "took the path less travelled by" and explored the reasons how and why it could happen with a female teacher. In contrast, Fictive Theatre's take on Fiona Evans' play Scarborough – which was a big hit at the Edinburgh Festival – shows in each half of the play a 29-year-old teacher with a pupil of the opposite sex, but using almost exactly the same dialogue.

WEEKLY ART NIGHT, Space Arts Centre - Review

"Imagine just turning on a light in middle of night!" – Dan – Weekly Art Night

Is this the world we created, we made it on our own
Is this the world we devastated, right to the bone
If there's a God in the sky looking down
What can he think of what we've done
To the world that He created.
Queen - Is This The World We Created

Sleeping Beauty - Bristol Old Vic, Review

Sally Cookson’s production of Sleeping Beauty at the Bristol Old Vic intertwines the story of ‘Sleeping Beauty’ with traditional Welsh Folk Tale ‘The Leaves that Hung but Never Grew’, offering a fresh perspective on life after ‘the kiss’. Cookson has chosen to reverse the gender roles of Sleeping Beauty (now Prince Percy) and the Prince (now Deilen), creating a refreshing opportunity for our female lead to be pro-active in this fairy tale.

“Jest End” at the Waterloo East Theatre – Review

Describing itself as “The hit musical comedy show that explores and exposes the hits, flops and gossip of Theatreland” Jest End does exactly what it says on the tin. A sharp and hilarious take on all of the popular musical theatre productions, writer Garry Lake has reworded and restyled familiar songs with irreverence and joy.
