The Collector, The Vaults Theatre - Review

I will have you
Yes, I will have you
I will find a way and I will have you
Like a butterfly
A wild butterly
I will collect you and capture you…

Henna Night, Hen & Chickens Theatre - Review

"Jack? This is a message for Jack. Just Jack. 

I know I shouldn't be doing this...I'm not dealing with all this very well. And I keep waiting to feel better. But I don't feel better Jack. I went to Boots today and I bought a packet of henna and some razor blades… I thought, ok, I’m going to go home, drink a bottle of wine, and then depending how I feel tomorrow morning, I’ll either slash my wrists or dye my hair. Either way, I’ll ruin my bathroom carpet."

Macbeths, Hope Theatre - Review

As the audience is ushered in, one notices the smell of joss sticks – a common enough item, but within the intimate theatrical space that is the Hope Theatre, it transforms a stage into a lived-in space, a home... One of the most surprising things about Macbeths' solipsistic premise is why no one hasn’t thought about it before. We’ve had the likes of Hamlet the play from the point of view of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, its peripheral characters, but we’ve not had another Shakespearean play based solely on its title characters.

A Midsummer Night's Dream, Waterloo East Theatre - Review

Approaching the well-known pastoral comedy from both a traditional and modern direction, CandleFire Theatre's latest Shakespearean production has much to commend. Integrating live instruments into the proceedings, one is automatically transported to the Mediterranean at the turn of the 20th century, reminiscent of a Federico García Lorca play...
