Not About Heroes Wilde Theatre, South Hill Park Arts Centre, Bracknell

Manon Royal Opera House, London

Pentecost Lyric Theatre, Belfast

Theatre  Stewart Parker’s final play deals with a society which, like its writer, was in the throes of terminal illness.

Flowers of the Forest Jermyn Street Theatre, London
