Agnes Colander

A revelation. At twenty-two Granville Barker’s a master in the making. Naomi Frederick’s sovereign in the title role.


Ali and Dahlia

A phenomenally well-written first play


All About Eve

Absorbing. A must-see.


Berberian Sound Studio

Thoroughly absorbing, full of walking shadows who throw vivid questions.


Blood Knot

With Angela Smith’s phrase ringing in our ears, there’s not going to be a better play anywhere that answers it. Do see it.

Still masterly, and in this rare revival, a must-see.


Cougar

You must see this.


Cyprus Avenue

Devastating drama about the DNA of bigotry; and it all starts in surreal farce.

A masterly, unsettling play that in this production never puts a foot wrong. And wrong-foots us all.

A flinty lesson, not to be missed.

Compelling dissection of what hampers the mindset of our main progressive party.


Laundry and Bourbon/Lone Star

Yet again NVT deliver small gems of Americana. See it.

Maud Dromgoole’s proved more than adroit, skilful, and deliciously risk-taking. A must-see.

Richard II

A searingly precise essay on the corruption of entitlement.

Shipwreck

A superb ensemble piece. Of all dramas on these interesting times in America, it’s the one truly necessary.

A searing new talent.


Sweat

No wonder this play’s just extended its run. Don’t even read this before you try booking.


The American Clock

It’s imperative to see this production.


The Father

Florian Zeller's masterpiece, in a production and central performance that would do it justice anywhere.
