Sophie Willan - On Record, Review

Startlingly funny, the power of this show is in the simplicity of a redacted document describing a real person who is standing in front of us, responding to it in the best way that she knows how – through humour.

The MIssion - Review

The Mission is a visually stunning piece of physical theatre devised by its cast. Genuinely moving and powerful, it gives pause for thought about those who take bold steps, or even giant leaps, on our behalf.

Rainbow Class, written and performed by Vivienne Acheampong - Review

Rainbow class is a piece of observational comedic theatre, skilfully and entertainingly delivered. Vivienne Acheampong has shades of Joyce Grenfell as she plays members of the Tiddlesworth Primary school community.

It's Got To Be Perfect - written and performed by Anna Morris, Review

Foiled by David Charles and Beth Granville – Review

Delivered as a site specific piece in Ruby Rouge, a hairdressing salon on Clerk Street, Foiled is the comedic tale of an ambitious but lazy manager determined to win the Clip Advisor award for Salon of the year.

Lucy, Lucy and Lucy Barfield - Review

Lucy, Lucy and Lucy Barfield details Lucy Grace's personal journey of discovering the “real” Lucy. Not just CS Lewis’s god-daughter named on the flyleaf of The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, but also Lucy Grace herself, from a girl to a woman, who has to integrate her imagination with her everyday life. A very interesting production, mixing fantasy and reality in a precise and measured way that works well with its theme.

Juliette Burton: Decision Time, Review
