Desire Caught By The Tail, Bread & Roses Theatre - Review

More of a piece of performance art than a play, Desire Caught by The Tail is a surrealist work that was penned by Pablo Picasso in 1941. First performed as a rehearsed reading in France shortly before its occupation, with the likes of Simone de Beauvoir, Jean-Paul Sartre and Albert Camus in occupied France, it has rarely been performed since its inception.

Salmon and Wales, Matthew's Yard - Review

…I live on the second floor
I live upstairs from you
Yes I think you've seen me before

If you hear something late at night
Some kind of trouble, some kind of fight
Just don't ask me what it was…

Luka, Suzanne Vega

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."
