The Slightly Annoying Elephant

In my job as a nanny, I get to see children’s theatre shows quite a bit. This time we went down to the Little Angel theatre to see their production of The Slightly Annoying Elephant, a fun little show based on the same book by David Williams. The Little Angel Theatre puts on all kinds…

Night Of The Living Dead Live

This afternoon I was invited by Love Popups London to attend the 5pm show of Night Of The Living Dead Live at the Pleasance Theatre in Islington. We were treated to premium on-stage platter zone seating, so upon arrival we were outfitted with dark grey boiler suits to cover our clothes with and provide a…

The Swell Mob

I was invited along to the press night of Flabbergast Theatre‘s new production The Swell Mob by Love Popups London, so I headed down to the Colab Factory near Borough Station to get immersed in the 1830s taproom setting of this whirlwind show. Upon arrival we were greeted by a variety of seedy characters, given…

Great British Mysteries – 1599

After having seen Great British Mysteries in their Edinborough previews two years ago (you can check out my review here) I’ve been wanting to see their prequel 1599 since I first heard about it. I finally got the chance when they had a short run at the Soho Theare. Olive Bacon and Teddy Tyrell are…

Rosmersholm

I had the great luck to be given two tickets to see Rosmersholm at short notice, I’d been itching to see Hayley Atwell live and this was the perfect opportunity. Written in 1886 by Henrik Ibsen, Rosmersholm is set in a small town somewhere in Norway on the brink of a political revolution. The play…

Dismantle This Room

Intrigued by the description and pricing system of Dismantle This Room, I recruited two friends to go with me. From the theatre website: Stage a violent revolution. Take them down from the inside. Blow the whistle. Or tear it all up and start again. Dismantle This Room is an immersive escape-the-room experience that asks the…

Dinner Is Coming

After having attended the previous Vaults productions of Beauty And The Feast, An Evening Of Meat, and Divine Proportions I immediately jumped for joy when Dinner Is Coming at The Vaults was announced. Tickets were bought, friends were recruited, fun was had! Immediately upon entering I knew this was going to be glorious! There was…

Recollection

I had the opportunity to try out Any One Thing‘s new show Recollection at a discount, so headed down to the pub where it starts to see what it was all about. At the starting point, we were immediately thrown into the action. This immersive show is very small, there were only four players in…

The Flying Bath

I love to take my charges to the theatre, so am always on the look out for their age group. The Flying Bath was listed at 2-5yrs and thus seemee perfect! Based on the book by Julia Donaldson and David Roberts, it’s a very simple and cute story, adapted to a fun bath time adventure…

Hair – 50th Anniversary Tour UK

While having seen the film about a million times and listening to the soundtrack up and down, I’ve never seen Hair live, so definitely had to change that when the 50th anniversary tour came around to Wimbledon! I was aware that the stage version differs from the film in that it has less of a…

Vulvarine

After having seen The Talented Mr. Ripley at the Vaults Festival, we stuck around to see Vulvarine by Fat Rascal Theatre. Having seen their previous production of a gender flipped Beauty And The Beast musical, which was one of the most hilarious shows I’d ever seen, I knew I had to see their new production!…

The Talented Mr. Ripley

Last night I got to see another play at the Vaults Festival, this time it was The Talented Mr. Ripley by The Faction. This production was quite scaled back due to the limitations of the theatre, but the space was very effectively used with a square of tables used in a variety of ways for…
