Review: The IT

A truly worthwhile production


Review: Decay

A first class production by an accomplished youth theatre


Review: Project Y Evolution

A performance guided by the scope of ambition with an energetic and able group of confident dancers.


Review: The Accrington Pals

Actors and director can take pride in mounting this intensely moving play, especially in the sheer flow they all bring to Act Two, blazing an arc of ever-growing tensions. It could carry anywhere. ACT did it some service, and must know it.


Review: The Sewage

Two brothers, a lost goldfish, and a world of grotesque creatures ...


Review: Bakkhai

The Tale of Your Times. Of Old Times. Of Times Yet To Come.


Review: How to Be Lost

A wonderful piece of theatre which uses the considerable abilities of the performers onstage to ironically direct us into how to be lost!


Review: The Kettling

Highly effective piece of youth theatre drama ostensibly covering climate change but including a whole lot more


Review: Candide

"Brimming with ideas, full-blooded and full throated performance, Candide is presented successfully in a way only Babolin theatre can achieve."


Review: Inside This Box

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


Review: Beauty and the Beast

Nothing so convincing has been done with this legend. It deserves many revivals.


Review: Ceyda Tanc Youth Dance

“An inspirational and dynamic showcase of the next generation of dancers under the guidance of Brighton based, Ceyda Tanc”


Review: Eight

Strong monologues from four actors that show their abilities to hold an audience and deliver a fine piece of writing that belies their age.


Review: Holy Moses

A charming retelling of the Moses story through two young people who may win the prize for show furthest travelled and certainly tell this tale with confidence.


Review: The Red Shoes

Sizzling reimagining of the Hans Christian Anderson tale in the context of Weimar Germany that brims full of artistic value


Review: Lift

An original musical with promise and vitality which nearly gets it spot on.


Review: Female Transport

A tale of transport to the colonies with punishment, exploitation and solidarity at the heart of a straightforward tale, told in an intimate setting.
