Love, Sex and Other Apps, Bread & Roses Theatre - Review

It's been quite a while since I've come across a brand new writer (at least on my radar) who has impressed me with their originality and 'voice'. Michelle Sewell is such a person. Her double bill of plays at Bread & Roses Theatre makes for an entertaining and thought-provoking 90 minutes. I half-expected the evening to jump straight into a play about dating apps, but I was very pleasantly surprised to be confronted by a play that looked at 'love' from an unconventional angle – and something very topical to boot. Both plays were directed by Lydia Parker.

Women Centre Stage: Power Play - PRIDE and Prejudice, Hampstead Theatre - Review

Last Sunday (20th November 2016) was a marathon day for showcasing female-led theatre. Organised by Sphinx Theatre, Women Centre Space is an annual, all-day event and in the past it has taken place at the National Theatre on London's South Bank. However, this year  (after week-long workshops at the The Actor's Centre) it has taken place at Hampstead Theatre, where 100 cast, writers and directors took part.

Someone Found, Pleasance Theatre - Preview

'Wild' women have been feared since earliest times. From the legend of Lilith to the Grecian Bacchae, women who deviate from the submissive 'norm' have been treated with suspicion and contempt. Theatre company About Wolves have crafted a interesting tale, based on real life historical figure Cynthia Ann Parker.
