Latest reviews

Gunmetal Blues Queen’s Theatre, Hornchurch

Theatre  Queen’s opens its autumn season with a European premiere, resurrecting a seemingly forgotten musical murder-mystery, which started life as an Off-Broadway hit.

Autobahn King’s Head Theatre, London

Theatre  A series of couples have conversations at the wheel of a car in this exploration of relationships, dialogue and unspoken emotions.

Toast Park Theatre, London

Theatre  Richard Bean is as ubiquitous in UK theatre as beans on toast.

Briefs - The Second Coming London Wonderground

Theatre  After a stint at this year’s Glastonbury Festival, the boys from Brisbane return to the London Wonderground with their own particular blend of big-top vaudeville.

Eye of a Needle Southwark Playhouse, London

Theatre  This powerful new play by Chris MacDonald tackles the provocative subject of immigration and a department floundering under the weight of political and media pressure, lack of resources and outdated guidelines.

The Tree Upstairs at the Gatehouse, London

Theatre  The Tree is a love story about a young Muslim girl and her Serbian neighbour set against the backdrop of the Bosnian War.

In Time O’ Strife Lochgelly Centre, Lochgelly

Theatre  Rough-hewn and powerful, the National Theatre of Scotland takes Joe Corrie’s great cry of pain on behalf of working men and their families, and places it firmly in the community from whence it came.

Pitcairn Minerva, Chichester

Theatre  Pitcairn is the middle of three new shows, all by Richard Bean, that are being presented across a little over three months, in between the surprise late June premiere of Great Britain at the National (a play that was only announced five days before it opened and is now transferring to the Haymarket) and Made in Dagenham, a new musical coming to the West End’s Adelphi in October.

Sister Act Kilworth House Theatre, Leicester

Theatre  Everyone ends up transformed in this show, which is why it brims with the feel-good factor.

Hay Fever Theatre Royal Bath

Theatre  With the sad implosion of summer over this recent bank holiday, this vibrant staging of Noel Coward’s Hay Fever, with its scenario of being trapped in a country property with a demented family, couldn’t have been better timed.
