Top 5 theatre shows to see this week (March 25-31)
Wolfie – Theatre503, London
Sophie Melville and Erin Doherty are actors who elevate everything they’re in. This bodes well for Lisa Spirling’s production of Ross Willis’ debut play, a fairytale about twins separated at birth. It opens on March 25.
The Phlebotomist – Hampstead Theatre, London
Following a run at Hampstead’s Downstairs space in 2018, Ella Road’s debut play transfers to the Main Stage. Our reviewer called it a “clever dystopia with a human touch”. Jade Anouka stars in the production, which opens on March 25.

Nottingham Playhouse – winner of The Stage’s regional theatre of the year award – stages a version of David Almond’s Whitbread-winning children’s novel, directed by Lisa Blair. It opens on March 27.
Fiddler on the Roof – Playhouse Theatre, London
Trevor Nunn’s Menier Chocolate Factory production of the classic musical transfers to the West End, with Andy Nyman reprising his acclaimed performance in the role of Tevye. It opens on March 27.
Grief is the Thing With Feathers – Barbican Theatre, London
Previously seen in Ireland, Enda Walsh’s adaptation of Max Porter’s delicate novel about the pain of bereavement stars Walsh’s regular collaborator Cillian Murphy and opens on March 28.
