Phaedra(s) - Barbican Theatre Review

Sex, death and complicated family relationships are the hallmarks of a Greek tragedy. Krzysztof Warlikowski’s Phaedra(s) had all three. Times three. Co-produced by the Barbican and Odéon-Théâtre de l'Europe, as part of LIFT 2016, Phaedra(s) presents three tellings of the famous Greek myth: firstly Lebanese-Canadian writer Wajdi Mouawad’s, then Sarah Kane’s Phaedra’s Love, and lastly Nobel Prize-winning South African author J.M. Coetzee’s Elizabeth Costello.

Sea Life, Hope Theatre - Review

First performed 16 years ago in Bristol, Lucy Catherine's Sea Life at the Hope Theatre marks its London premiere. With traces of Anthony Neilson's Dissocia* and Tabitha Mortiboy's Beacons in its DNA – but pre-dating both – Sea Life follows siblings Roberta, Bob and Eddie who own a pub in a permanenty 'off-season' coastal town... Except this pub is very much in use, diversified for the use of the new 'family business'.
