Review: Good

C. P. Taylor’s Good shows – supremely - how a liberal without developed conscience gets sucked in. It interrogates each of us, especially polite liberals who might say “I’m not political, I’m not interested in politics.” Politics is interested in us. And authoritarianism beats us into a dead-march. And unless we resist to a point of danger, we’ll fall in. A groundbreaking production of this timelessly urgent play.

Review: Django in Pain

Poignant, charming and meaningful play that is imaginative and vibrant in vision and message.

Review: Tree Confessions

Innovative, entertaining, meaningful and creative!

Review: Donald and Benoit

Whimsical, distracting and delightful – from cat’s pajamas to the dog’s claws, this is a real panacea to the absurdity of life.

Review: A Call to Care

A creatively choreographed homage to the essential work of an essential crew from an essentially creative part of our crafts

An astonishing performance of a personal journey that whispers in anger leads you to positives humanity throughout.

Review: The Water Cooler

A unique take on the problems of today which does manage to bring new perspective to the issue we face regarding race and mental wellbeing.

Review: Walk of Shame

A slow burning expose of the shame we should feel at how we treat those who exercise the liberty we expect them to have

Review: The Bus Stop

A tale of complaint that is a terrific reminder of all of our responsibilities.

Review: Lament for Sheku Bayou

An astonishing story lamented and told in an extraordinary fashion that resonates and poetically demands change.

Review: A Kiss From Back Home

A solo performance that brings effectively to the stage the soulful disappointment of a lost relationship.

Review: Strange Rocks

A wholly theatrical exploration of what finding a body on a shore might contemplatively lead you to consider.

A fascinating online exploration of what might happen when someone dies and leaves someone else in charge of their digital footprint.

Review: Craig

Imagination rules when you need to find a creative solution – with an orange!

Review: At the Ghostlight

Two theatrical legends talk plague and contagion and not being on a stage

Review: MILF

A series of exploratory monologues that really make you think about the value of gender

Review: Isolation

A desperate portrait of the strain of the absence from a mother of her child during the pandemic.

Review: Growth

An intriguing few minutes of a short performance followed by the workshop that created it and which you can use to create your own growth spurt.

Review: A Small Gathering

A triptych of solos, presented from people stuck in their houses who dare us to join in their creative deliciousness in an imaginative, terrifying and fantastic manner.

Review: Railed

A cotton printed, adult themed circus rodeo that is as wonderful as it is rude and engaging.

Review: Sunset Boulevard

A classic film in a theatrical homage which retains the sparkle of the original and adds exceptional performances onstage to add to the spectacle.

Review: The Phantom of the Opera

The Albert Hall’s sovereign production, unlikely to be surpassed particularly with the special encore.

Review: Treasure Island

First-rate theatre. In Joshua James’ Ben Gunn and above all Pasy Ferran’s Jim, we see stars rising quicker than Arthur Darvill’s superb Silver can point them out.

Review: Hamlet

In Michelle Terry’s quicksilver, quick-quipping Hamlet, much has been proved, from interpretive to gender fluidity in tragic action, that sets a privilege on being in at a beginning.

Review: Cyprus Avenue

Devastating drama about the DNA of bigotry played as surreal farce.

Review: Wonderland

Outstanding. Surely the definitive study of the dignity of physical labour, and breaking of its amity.

Review: Amsterdam

Did I say sucker-punch? It’s what the Orange Tree do every time.

Review: Jane Eyre

You’ll never see a better adaptation of this classic

Review: Wild

Theatrically the most thrilling end to any Bartlett play

Review: I and You

Will leave you in a heap and wonder what else Lauren Gunderson has written that comes near this.
