Dazzling: wise, clever twists about choice, male determination, and consequence.


Between the Cracks

Another hugely stimulating triple-hit from Creative Associates.


Branching Out

Three very fine and one outstanding work, Scratches – the best kind of play on depression, self-harm, black holes. Because it’s screamingly funny and deeply connected to why we do theatre.

Its potency lies in a fine peeling apart by Adrian Lester and Danny Sapini, and the language that bridges it.

Push and Pull

A quietly thrilling evening, after it goes off with a bang and a bear.

The most profound reinvention of this particular myth I’ve seen
