#AIWW The Arrest of Ai WeiWei

Brenton powerfully concertinas a continent’s politics and one artist’s refraction of it. Wong is outstanding


A Separate Peace

Stoppard looks at society’s phantom limb ethic. Even when it’s gone it aches, and it aches to have someone opting out.

Victoria Hamilton still dominates, but Albion’s a fine ensemble piece. Goold has given Albion the air it needs: an unsettling parable on forcing an identity of ourselves.


all of it

A miniature classic of snatched meaning. Catch it.

Barber Shop Chronicles is a breath-taking revelation for those of us who had small inkling of a world in miniature.


Cyprus Avenue

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

This work never loses its charge, its own rapturous arrival Spall gives the performance of his career so far.

Our greatest playwright since Beckett and Pinter. An outstanding revival. Hesitating?

Inside This Box

Showcases future names and above all is defiant with hope and agency


Jesus Christ, Superstar

A sovereign production, unlikely to be equalled for the foreseeable

A unique take on the isolation foisted on all of us


Teenage Dick

Ambition treads on teenage dreams and their devastation.


The Cutting Edge

You hope, unfairly, for a sequel.


The Dog Walker

I want to know what life, not just Paul Minx will do with his characters afterwards. So will you.


The Good Dad (A Love Story)

Intricate, fiercely intelligent, this play packs far more force than some twice its length. Sarah Lawrie’s intensity is magnificent.


The Mikvah Project

Still a brave and beautiful play.


The Mikvah Project

Still a brave and beautiful play.


The Sugar Syndrome

A pitch-perfect revival. Even down to the dial-up screech.


Tiger Country

Tells us more truthfully then any play has, the heroism that hardens, the sacrifice that endures.


Wild

Theatrically the most thrilling end to any Bartlett play
