Trainspotting Live

Back at my favourite haunt, The Vaults! This time for a spot of Trainspotting Live, an immersive theatre experience I wasn’t sure I actually wanted… I’m not going to go into deep plot descriptions, just know that if you haven’t seen the film, you probably want to stay away from this immersive production. Partly because…

Neverland

When I read about Neverland at the Vaults Festival by The Guild Of Misrule , I remembered all the other immersive events I’ve done at the Vaults so far, and promptly grabbed tickets to experience this fun sounding show. It all starts in the Darlings’ bedroom with the “children” inviting patrons to join them in…

Father Of Lies

Another trip down to the Vaults, this time to see Father of Lies at the Vaults Festival. As I’m a big fan of true crime and mysterious phenomenon reporting, so this one just sounded like the perfect mix of the two. Tom Worsley and Sasha Roberts present a real life case of murder from 1973….

The Lifeboat

Part of the Vault Festival was The Lifeboat, an escape room experience based on sci-fi classics, so I had to get a small group together and try it out. As the Vaults are one of my favorite venues in London, I was pleased to find out that this escape experience was taking place in a…

Great Again – The Musical

Another show at the Vault Festival, I thought Great Again by Old Sole Theatre Company sounded like an interesting political exploration, so I grabbed a ticket and went to see it. Unfortunately the show fall fully flat of whatever it aims to accomplish, which is a mystery even at the end of the show. From…

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…

DeadClub

I wasn’t sure what to expect from DeadClub, billed as an immersive dance horror performance, but I’m always up for an adventure, so I grabbed BambiBlueWho and off we went. When the doors opened, we were presented with a large, raised stage, at about chest level, with numbered standing places all around it. The stage…

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…

Briefs – Close Encounters

After having seen the Briefs troup a few times before, so obviously I had to attend their new show at the Underbelly festival, Close Encounters. The Australia-based assembly of all-male burlesque performers always delivers a colourful, eccentric performance, and this one was no disappointment either! The overarching theme for this show was, as the title…

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…

The God Of Hell

God Of Hell, Sam Shepard’s play, was playing at the N16 Theater and sounded suitably interesting, so I wandered out to see it. The stage design was absolutely stellar, with cartoonish white furniture with black outlines. Very stylish and minimalist while being super effective. So far so good, but unfortunately it went steeply downhill from there. The…

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…
