Bitter Wheat

When I heard that John Malkovich is coming to the West End, I just had to grab tickets to see Bitter Wheat, not knowing anything about the play itself. I like to go into plays with little to no expectations, to tend not to read up about it and also avoid reviews until after I’ve…

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…

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…

The Lieutenant Of Inishmore

A friend of mine came to visit from Canada to see this play, as they’re a huge fan of Aidan Turner, so I organised some tickets for us to see The Lieutenant Of Inishmore at the Noel Coward Threatre and off we went. The brutal comedy by Martin Donagh centres around Turner’s character of Padraic,…

Tartuffe

Touted as the first bi-lingual play in the West End, I just had to check out Tartuffe at the Royal Haymarket Theatre. Based on Moliere’s classic, this version of Tartuffe is catapulted into modern times Los Angeles, where the wealthy Orson is completely enamoured by the charms of the radical evangelist Tartuffe. While Orson’s family…

God – The Untold Story

So, this sounded like a lot of fun, so I had to grab tickets and check it out. Here’s the show’s short description: After several centuries in retirement, God has decided to make a comeback… and will be granting an exclusive interview to popular chat-show host, Binty O’Reilley. Sounds fun? Yup, it definitely was! The…

Ruthless! the musical

I recently got to see Ruthless! The Musical at the Arts Theatre. Ruthless is a fun, little musical about ambition and scruples. The story of a young performer who is willing to go the extra mile to be the star of the stage, this musical is packed full of humour and silliness. The production is…

Police Cops In Space

RooduHhe aAsWhile scrolling through show names for this year’s Vault Festival I came across Police Cops In Space by The Pretend Men, which sounded like just my thing, so I grabbed a ticket and went on this wild ride.   This show is as silly as it sounds! We’re in the distant future where people live in…

The People’s Rock

I love the Vault Festival as there are always such amazing shows on! Going simply by name, The People’s Rock by the women’s collective Nevertheless She, sounded like a riot, so I booked tickets and headed to Waterloo station to descend into the amazing underground tunnels of the Vaults. Set in a dystopian future that references the “Make America…

Dante’s Divine Comedy

The Barons Court theatre at the Curtains Up hosts small theatre productions in its cozy downstairs pub theatre. This week they are showing Dante’s Divine Comedy by So It Goes Theatre and I was lucky enough to go see this amazing production. I was a bit skeptical, as Dante’s divine comedy is such an epic…

Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre Do Shakespeare

When I heard that the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre were coming to the Camden Fringe, I just had to grab me a ticket! I’ve seen the hilarious socks a few times before and this time they were tackling the great bard. I knew this one was not to be missed. The fantastic footwear duo entertained us in…

Hans: Mein Camp

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but I booked tickets to see Hans: Mein Camp anyway, I mean, with a title like that, what could go wrong! After we all filed into the spiegeltent at the Underbelly Festival, I was ready for a campy, colourful show. And boy, did Hans deliver! Hans is the faux-German glitter persona…
