Yomi Sode’s hybrid theatre is a compelling immersion of witness and poetry: we need more of it.
We need this. Watch.
Like all the Royal Court’s Living Newspaper series, we need this. Watch.
A cross between cheerfully-spun recital and quicksilver treasury
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
A sleeping classic in the making
A true Pre-Raphaelite gem-lit recital.
As ever consummate, fine performances, and probing memorably into women Romantic poets
Utterly refreshing, breaking new ground.
Naturally enriched by living with Shakespeare Michael Pennington unearths local habitations and names for him.
An enormously satisfying traversal
A dramatic sense of arrival the way the Odyssey here ended: a clash of even vaster ferocity, keening, treachery, humour, mischievousness, sacrifice and grief, joy and the agency of women.
The definitive way to experience this troublingly great, disturbingly unresolved poem
Again the most educative stand-up and a thrilling presentation. Oh and bloody funny on war, male sexuality and the Bechdel Test.
A jewel of inhabiting
An ideal inhabiting of Blake
