FULL CIRCLE, Arts Theatre - Review

Phaedra. Helen. Medea. Clytemnestra. Women of Classical Greek mythology that along with the biblical Eve, have influenced perceptions of women for millennia. Taking a leaf from Arthur Kopit's Chamber Music and Caryl Churchill's Top Girls, Madelaine Cunningham's Full Circle finds the  four female archetypes residing in their own personal purgatory.

DESPERATE MEASURES, Jermyn Street Theatre - Review

The use of Shakespeare's work as a musical is nothing new. Kiss Me Kate (Taming of the Shrew) and West Side Story (Romeo & Juliet) spring to mind. It is telling though that no one's had the moxie since the 1950s to use the Bard's work as the basis of a new musical.

THE WILD AT HEART, Hornsey Arts Centre - Review

While the percentage of the work of female playwrights performed is an ongoing concern, in the first half of the 20th century, the numbers of female-centric plays (let alone plays from female playwright seeing the light of day) were miniscule.

Claustrophobia, Hope Theatre - Review

With overtures to Jean-Paul Sartre's No Exit and the canon of Samuel Beckett, Claustrophobia's straightforward premise – two people waiting in a confined space with no escape from each other – lends itself to innumerable possibilities. Directed by Sharon Burrell and written by novelist Jason Hewitt, Claustrophobia strips stagecraft to its bare essentials.
