Mary, Mary - Lion & Unicorn Theatre - Review

Anyone who is remotely interested in Feminism must know the enormous debt it owes to Mary Wollstonecroft. Initially famous within literary circles as the author of  A Vindication of the Rights of Woman and  Thoughts on the Education of Daughters, following her death her professional reputation was eclipsed by the revelations of her private life. Theatre Mensch's ambitious play Mary, Mary focuses not only on Wollstonecroft, but her second daughter who is a notable literary figure in her own right – Mary Shelley (née Godwin).

How do you stop an adversary that doesn't have any boundaries, or lives by any civilised rules? Written by Abbie Spallen, her fiercely intelligence play Poena 5X1 asks these and other pertinent questions.

Desire Caught By The Tail, Bread & Roses Theatre - Review

More of a piece of performance art than a play, Desire Caught by The Tail is a surrealist work that was penned by Pablo Picasso in 1941. First performed as a rehearsed reading in France shortly before its occupation, with the likes of Simone de Beauvoir, Jean-Paul Sartre and Albert Camus in occupied France, it has rarely been performed since its inception.

Salmon and Wales, Matthew's Yard - Review

…I live on the second floor
I live upstairs from you
Yes I think you've seen me before

If you hear something late at night
Some kind of trouble, some kind of fight
Just don't ask me what it was…

Luka, Suzanne Vega

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.

Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour, National Theatre - Review

Originally performed by the National Theatre of Scotland and Live Theatre last year, Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour isn't your average of coming of age tale.

Steel Magnolias, Hope Theatre - Review

A cross-generational play with six female roles, Steel Magnolias has plenty going for it.
