Review: South Pacific (Touring)

Tuesday 1st November 2022 at Leeds Grand Theatre ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ In a time of so many exciting adaptations and daring modernisations of classics, this production of South Pacific from director Daniel Evans is a shining example of how the “golden oldies” can maintain their appeal without very much tinkering at all.

Review: Behind Closed Walls at Brockley Jack Studio Theatre

Thursday 27th October 2022 at Brockley Jack Studio Theatre, London. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviewer: Emma Dorfman Alternate-history plays, for the most part, have the tendency to be more alien than not. Unfamiliar, dystopic worlds often mean a lot of work on the audience’s part to “figure out” this unfamiliar territory. With Behind Closed Walls, however, writer Daryl... Continue Reading →

Review: Des Fleurs at The Space, London

Wednesday 26th October 2022 at The Space, London ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviewer: Emma Dorfman Wasted time is perhaps the worst feeling of them all.

Review: The Play with Speeches at the Jack Studio Theatre, London

Thursday 13th October 2022 at at the Jack Studio Theatre, London ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviewer: Issy Flower James Woolf’s The Play With Speeches is an unwieldy comic beast: long and unformed, it delivers the laughs but is neither satirical nor emotional enough to transcend its limitations. Anthony (Matthew Parker) and Penny (Gillian King) are auditioning for Anthony’s... Continue Reading →
