Review: Titus Sharkdronicus

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the theatre.


Review: Dark Matter

Consciousness. Where does it arise from? What happens when it begins to decay?


Review: Life of Galileo

Thrilling, especially Brendan Cowell in the lead role. It’s unlikely we’ll see another Life of Galileo with the scale and reach of this for a long time, though perhaps for no better reason than we’re almost alienated from Brecht at a time when at least looking up and asking questions is what keeps us on our toes, when people talk of strong leaders.


Review: Christopher Nibble.

"The Guinea pigs of Dandeville are munching the poor over-stretched dandelion population out of existence and heading for eco-disaster!!


Review: The Forecast

The Forecast is an unforgettable experience on many levels - a horrifying, yet ultimately hopeful story about a future that is already pulling into the driveway


Review: Seeing Stars

Here’s Tycho Brahe to lead us by his gold nose. You can never start star-gazing too young; this Rust and Stardust production is a dazzling place to start. Enchanting, informative and exhilarating in equal measure; Conlon and Sommers’ singing sets a magical seal on this star-breaking look at the universe.


Review: The Wizard of Oz

It beggars belief that on one tiny stage we can be subjected to so many scene stages so expertly handled, so many backdrops and scenery shifts, not to mention a cast of twenty-two who can all sing. This production is good enough for a larger professional stage. If you get a chance, ask for a ticket or return.


Review: Motherhood:(Un)speakable, (Un)spoken

Ninety seconds into this newly-revised one-woman play, Joanna Rosenfeld - emerging in a poke of fingers from a cagoule of brown paper - over-voices herself giving witness to tens of verbatim experiences we hear. This tells us the baby’s a parasite, sucks all your nutrients, calcium from your teeth for instance, causes injury, often permanent, can kill. This is - literally - epic interior theatre.


Review: Motherhood: (Un)speakable, (Un)spoken

Moments into this one-woman play, Joanna Rosenfeld - emerging in a poke of fingers from a cagoule of brown paper - over-voices herself giving witness to tens of verbatim experiences we hear. This tells us the baby’s a parasite, sucks all your nutrients, calcium from your teeth for instance, causes injury, often permanent, can kill. This is - literally - epic interior theatre.


Review: Meet Fred

Inspiring, creative, imaginative, meaningful and fabulously entertaining!


Review: In Our Hands

Creative, entertaining and moving play with puppets!


Review: Wolf Meat

Profoundly silly and farcically serious show with just the kind of anarchy that offers coke to audience members. Contains brief and ghastly nudity.


Review: Pinocchio

Join Bard & Troubadour on a truly magical journary for all ages, as Pinocchio faces scoundrels, set-backs and sea monsters on his quest to become a real boy, in this loving recreation of the classic Italian fairy tale.


Review: Bruce

As our bumbling protagonist Bruce hurtles towards the Earth in a space shuttle, he reflects on the life events which lead him to this predicament.


Review: Paper Wings

Visually rich art , puppetry and dance - unique and beautiful!


Review: Cell

Poignant, entertains and enlightens about a serious topic


Review: Dragon

Mesmerizing Dragon!


Review: Cinder-ella

Cinder-ella offers a lot to recommend it, not the least of which is Kinny Gardner, a dynamic, engaging and imminently charming storyteller who offers laughter, imagination and just a little bit of magic!


Review: Beowulf

A creative, imaginative retelling of Beowulf in puppet form.


Review: Bruce

After three minutes, you completely forget that you’re looking at a sponge.


Review: Sticks Stones and Broken Bones

A shadow puppet show that turns household junk into surreal live cartoons

Goldilocks - but not as you remember the story!

Eloquent, Elegiac Puppetry

Is no news really good news?

A good idea in a tricky venue


Review: The Trench

A bleak World War One fantasy epic with puppetry and an impressive musical score.


Review: The Girl With No Heart

A thought provoking and unsettling human story, with strongly crafted images.


Review: The Table

Just a table, and a very funny puppet.


Review: Ma Biche et Mon Lapin

An interesting, and quintessentially French, piece of object theatre.


Review: Flyaway Katie

Complete flashback to the overwhelming joy of childhood fantasies


Review: Lost Props

We've got ourselves some enjoyable puppetry


Review: The Table

Exquisite puppetry that delights and entertains but could have done with the rest of the dining room furniture


Review: Swamp Juice

Surprising and delightful shadow puppetry


Review: Street Dreams

A phenomenal piece of work by a gifted young team.


Review: Swamp Juice


Review: Sticks, Stones, Broken Bones

Ludicrously fun, unexpectedly beautiful and gently inspirational family show from a shadow puppeteer who’s serious about play


Review: Robbie Wakes

Breath-taking. Outstanding.


Review: Jack Pratchard

Jonathan Storey’s small, strange and perfectly formed model theatre has a world of surprises in store


Review: Occasionally Ovid

A dark, raunchy and excellent puppet show: not for kids!
