Then it was DDT. Now it’s personal.
Then it was DDT. Now it’s personal.
A close encounter with a drag queen yields unexpected results
A remarkable one-person play, performed to literal fever pitch by its creator.
Review: On Arriving
On Arriving takes sixty minutes it seems we’ve been immersed in a Greek Tragedy of ninety. See it.
Review: and breathe…
Yomi Sode’s hybrid theatre is a compelling immersion of witness and poetry: we need more of it.
Andrews vividly conveys what it is to be an undone thing, someone unravelling tales to live.
This haunting 45-minute tale is a superb small gem from Jermyn Street’s Footprints Festival.
Review: Jekyll & Hyde
The most viscerally convulsive realisation of Jekyll or Hyde imaginable
Review: The Final Problem
This is certainly the way to experience The Final Problem.
Review: Under Heaven’s Eyes
Dynamic, provocative, emotive and heartfelt performance and writing.
Writer/performer Hannah Kumari leaves you alert and exhilarated
Review: Fiction Romance
Now the way to think of Twelfth Night’s Antonio
Review: How I Learned to Swim
Ends in a hush of absorption as you lean in for every word.
Review: There’s a Ghost in My House
Stunning. Greet the nothing that is not there, and the nothing that is.
Review: Vagabonds My Phil Lynott Odyssey
An original off-kilter approach to elegy, tribute and becoming yourself.
Don’t miss the chance to see this transcendent actor prove she possesses another dimension altogether.
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.
Review: Living Newspaper #7
Like all the Royal Court’s Living Newspaper series, we need this. Watch a group of young dramatists take on the future
Review: Illusions of Liberty
A finely-calibrated solo play of what it’s like to enter that tunnel of near-undiagnosable but very real illness. Corinne Walker’s both authoritative and quicksilver. Do catch it.
Review: Living Newspaper #6
Like all the Royal Court’s Living Newspaper series, we need this. Watch what this does with the future
Review: Scaramouche Jones
Shane Ritchie’s phenomenal energy and slidings in and out of tongues, mesmerises.
Review: New Moon Monologues March
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
Review: Death of England: Delroy
Renders huge black experience into a narrative that bears it, because so well-constructed, so character-driven and so inhabited by Michael Balogun whose blaze of awakening is both benediction and clarion.
Groundbreaking. The smallest producing theatre in the West End through lockdown has become the largest.
Review: A Kiss From Back Home
A solo performance that brings effectively to the stage the soulful disappointment of a lost relationship.
Review: The New Tomorrow
There’s a generosity here, a big hug. Theatre itself affirms the value of life to those who might yet shape it for the better.
Review: Signed, Sealed, Delivered
A unique take on the isolation foisted on all of us
Review: Daddy Drag
Proof that whilst you cannot fit a person into a show, you can truly theatrically lift a lid on his behaviour, the effect he leaves behind and the void that others cannot fill
Review: Death of England
This work never loses its charge, its own rapturous arrival Spall gives the performance of his career so far.
Original, raw, brilliantly funny and devastating. This production is Fleabag neat. Its harrowing streak of genius burns like a healing scar torn.
Review: My Will & My Life
Poignant play, moving, relatable and fascinating insight into a meaningful friendship.
Review: Sea Sick
