Crooks 1926

Last week I was invited to come along to Colab Theatre’s newest production, Crooks 1926. This immersive theatre project takes us back to 1926 to be thrown into the seedy underworld of London’s crime gangs and their territorial rivalries. Crooks 1926 is staged at the Colab Pub, a short walk from both Borough and Elephant…

The Snail And The Whale

Just before my Christmas holiday, I got to take the kids I nanny to see The Snail And The Whale by Tall Stories. We’ve seen another of their shows earlier in the year and absolutely loved it, so we were looking forward to seeing one of our favourite book brought to life. To frame the…

The Ocean At The End Of The Lane

As my fist play of the year, I went to see The Ocean At The End Of The Lane at the National Theatre. As a big fan of Neil Gaiman’s work, I was very excited to see how this story would translate to the stage. Book adaptations are always an interesting thing, aren’t they. It…

Secret Cinema – Stranger Things

I have been to a few Secret Cinema events before, so when I heard they were doing a Stranger Things run, I simply had to get a small gang together and head to Starcour Mall to celebrate the 80s in style! Lots of excitement in the run up to the show mean we had gathered…

Gingerline TV Dinners

On Thursday night, the lovely Joanne from Love PopUps London invited me along to experience Gingerline’s TV Dinners, a brand new immersive dining concept. TV Dinners is set up like a cheesy 90s game show in which contestants fight for extra food and the glory of winning. I had no idea what to expect, really….

Escape From Planet Trash

On Thursday I was invited to the press night of Pleasance Theatre and SinkThePink’s Escape From Planet Trash, a new space musical filled with drag queens, giant turkeys, heaps of trash, and lots of Christmassy goodness. Sounded just camp enough to be right up my alley, so I dragged a friend along to check it…

Crisis, what crisis?

Last Friday, I got to check out the new Parabolic Theatre production of Crisis, What Crisis?, taking place at the Colab Factory, which has by now become a somewhat familiar venue. This interesting immersive experience lets you try your hand at running the government, of sorts. Set in 1979, the Labour Government has a working…

Silence Will Fall – Colab

The night before Halloween I was invited by Love Pop Ups London to attend Colab‘s newest production Silence Will Fall at the Colab Factory. Silence is advertised with: This Halloween, investigate the mystery of the Southwark Murder. Join Rev. Stanley Park as you unravel the secrets of a hideous murder in the vain hope of…

Aladdin – Feast Of Wonders

Early this week I headed down to my favourite venue in London, The Vaults, with a few friens to experience the second of th two immersive dining shows currently running there. Aladdin And The Feast Of Wonders is another show created by Darling and Edge, whose previous adult dinner panto Beauty And The Feast I…

Ian McKellen On Stage

Of course as a huge fan, I had to gather some friends and head to see Ian McKellen On Stage. Having seen him on screen, on stage, and in interviews, I knew this would be a great show. Hearing this well travelled, acclaimed actor speak of his life and career was sure to be a…

The Bed

I recently headed back to the Little Angel Theatre with one of my charges, the two year old, to see The Bed, toddler version, this time at the studios, with I prefer to the actual theatre venue. This venue has some play areas available for children before the show, and the audience is only lead…

9 to 5

I recently had the chance to finally check out 9 to 5 at the Savoy Theatre. I’ve been wanting to see the Dolly Parton musical sensation for a while as I’d heard so much praise for it since it opened in February, so in September I actually got around to seeing it for myself! I’ve…
