A pristine, heartwarming Valentine of a musical, starring a pair of real-life lovers, it deserves a real-life run
Flawless, a stunning pocket-sized musical you really must see.
After all the gods and their lack of choice, we come to the final instalment, the human dimension. Where we have one. A heartfelt, satisfying finish.
One of the wittiest but also truthful comedies about love, identity, sexual politics and gefilte fish I’ve seen
We need this. Watch.
Like all the Royal Court’s Living Newspaper series, we need this. Watch what this does with the future
Like all the Royal Court’s Living Newspaper series, we need this. Watch a group of young dramatists take on the future
As we saw in March, don’t be lulled by friendly colours and fluffy fonts. Queens of Cups again proves they’re a company to revel with and wait for heart-stopping reveals
Don’t be lulled by the friendly colours and fluffy fonts. Queen of Cups is absolutely a company to watch, and its showcase productions are literally unmissable
A terrific reinvention, bringing gods and heroines up from the death of myth to an altered world.
Dazzling: wise, clever twists about choice, male determination, and consequence.
The most profound reinvention of this particular myth I’ve seen
A revelation, superbly written and acted. Comparisons have been made with A Girl Is A Half-formed Thing. I can think of no higher praise either. You must see this.
Vespertilio marks Barry McStay’s emergence as a writer of distinction. Anything he writes now should be looked out for.
