#We Are Arrested

Peter Hamilton Dyer carries this celebration of the conscience to be fully human

Hugely absorbing it’s entertaining too.

Cusack and McCormack give the performances of their lives


A searing arc of a drama based on true events

Sadness and Joy in the Life of Giraffes

Rodrigues is a dramatist we need to see far more of.

The Dismissal of the Greek Envoys and The Laments

The Flies

There’s nothing like the Exchange’s approach: their bi-lingual virtuosity burns questions.

An outstandingly theatrical re-visioning of a film

The Lady From the Sea

A groundbreaking production. Even outside its unique terms it’s outstanding.
