The Taming of the Shrew, Arts Theatre Review

Interesting to see the men being tamed and the women doing the taming, but didn’t quite hit the mark.

Sket, Park Theatre - Review

Twenty, 15, 10 years ago, 'sexting' as a term would have been unknown in the English language. Now it is one of many buzzwords that describes one of many social maladies that plauges  today's youth. 'Sket' on the other hand – slang  for skettle, a promsicuous girl, the lowest of the low – has always been around in one form or other. Written by Maya Sondhi and directed by Prav MJ, the play that bears the same name explores the phenomenon of sexting.

Wendy Hoose, Soho Theatre - Review

In England, theatre company Graeae is synonymous with theatre that breaks down the barrier between disabled actors and the mainstream. But in Scotland, theatre companies Birds of Paradise and Random Accomplice have made a name for themselves as arguably the leading practitioners of inclusive theatre north of the border. Founded by disabled creatives, their keen eye and the astute taste of their productions have achieved national recognition, and in recent years London theatre-goers has been lucky to have them perform in the capital. In 2014, their play Wendy Hoose briefly appeared at Southbank Centre, but it is now enjoying an extended run in London's Soho Theatre.

The Silver Gym - Queen's Theatre Review

A sparkling witty life affirming feminist romp that celebrates diversity and ageing (not necessarily at the same time) and reminds us that even the most unlikely activists can make a difference.

Stench - Theatre Review

A deft piece of new writing exploring life for unsettled twenty somethings, laced with quite a lot of alcohol. There are plenty of laughs but the darker undercurrents of shifting family and friendship dynamics are what makes it stand out.

My Mother Said I Never Should, St James Theatre - Review

Plays about generations of women are always interesting and depending when they were written, can indirectly shed light on the values and experiences of the author. Written by Charlotte Keatley, My Mother Said I Never Should (which was first performed in 1987) tackles the difficult relationships between mothers and daughters, while also exploring the themes of growing up, motherhood and independence.
