Day Job, Bread & Roses Theatre - Review

Devised by female-led Fanny Pack Theatre, and written and directed by Evi Stamatiou, Day Job is a comedy that beneath its humour has some serious comments to make about society’s relationship to work, especially if you’re a woman. Using the bus ride to/from work as a focus point, four women attempt to reconcile the practicalities of work with their long-term aspirations – or at the very least muse over the matter.

Her Aching Heart, Hope Theatre - Review

A successful playwright for the past 40 years, Bryony Lavery needs little introduction. While her plays often having underlying feminist themes and rich in female roles, Lavery's Her Aching Heart (which was originally written in 1992) is a light-hearted affair, perfect for this time of year.

Response to Removal Men Open Letter

Every day our news feeds are dominated by images of suffering. Twenty first century journalism can creep into every dark corner of the world. Where has this left us? I think, in a state of ‘removal’, in a state of numbness. It is saturating our capacity to feel anything. Never has this world needed more the disgusting absurdity of 2016 represented on a stage. And that is why Removal Men is happening.

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.
