In today's world there are very few things that are taboo to eat. Yes, there are lots of things that are bad for you if eaten in large quantities, but nobody would dream of outlawing salt, red meat, carbohydrates and so on.

Bare, Courtyard Theatre - Review

Judging by the number of shows I’ve seen in recent years that have been devised by graduates of East 15, the acting school has proven to be adept at nurturing tomorrow’s theatre-makers. Last week at the Courtyard Theatre, three of East 15’s alumni hosted an evening of female-led monologues, all written and performed by the artists themselves.
