Latest reviews

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.

Muse of Fire Shakespeare’s Globe, London

Theatre  Fire destroyed the first Globe Theatre in 1613.

The Boy Who Climbed Out of His Face The Jetty at Greenwich Peninsula, London

Theatre  Given that The Boy Who Climbed Out of His Face is an immersive experience and, as such, contains many elements of surprise, it is a challenge to articulate an opinion while maintaining the sense of mystery.

Ha Ha Hood! and The Prince of Leaves Civic Theatre, Chelmsford

Theatre  Following previous renditions of this successful parody series, including last year’s critically acclaimed Ha Ha Holmes!, Ha Ha Hood and The Prince of Leaves provides a welcome escape from reality.

Lolita The Lord Stanley, London

Theatre  Nabokov’s 1955 masterpiece finds curious echoes in today’s mass media climate of stories of historical sex abuses.

Guys and Dolls Chichester Festival Theatre

Theatre  The style and panache of Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows’s distillation of Damon Runyon’s classic story and characters, set to Frank Loesser’s tuneful but acerbically pointed songs, puts Guys and Dolls among the greatest of the musicals from Broadway’s golden age.

Secret Cinema presents Back To The Future Queen Elizabeth Park, London

Theatre  Since 2007, Secret Cinema has been blurring the line between film and theatre, creating immersive productions around classic movie screenings.
