Uncle Vanya

In early February I ventured out to see Uncle Vanya at the Harold Pinter Theatre with a friend. I had heard a lot of great things about this production, so was very much looking forward to see it. Uncle Vanya is on at the Harold Pinter theatre until the 2nd of May. The stage design…

Nora: A Doll’s House

On the first Monday in March I was invited to see Nora: A Doll’s House at the Young Vic theatre. I was a bit apprehensive at first, as the summary given and the poster make it seem like quite a stark play and I wasn’t sure if I could stomach it with having had a…

Nuclear War / Buried / Graceland

On Tuesday I ventured down to the Old Red Lion Theatre to see the three-play production Nuclear War / Buried / Graceland. Despite being a very small theatre, I really like the Old Red Lion. Their upstairs theatre room is quite intimate as the wooden benches are very close to the stage area. I’ve seen…

Spun – Candy Face Lollipop Masterclass

I recently had the privilege to attend one of Spun’s Face Lollipop Masterclasses, in which I got to make my own face out of sugar! A brilliantly unusual thing to do in London. I’ve previously attended their lollipop making masterclass, and that was a whole lot of fun, and at their birthday party I got…

The Adventure Is Real

On Thursday night I was invited to try out the new immersive game by The Adventure Is Real, a combination of roleplaying games, boardgames, and immersive theatre. It was a whirlwind of an adventure to get through, and we had a whole lot of fun with it. Thanks for the invite, Love Popups London. When…

Cyrano De Bergerac

I got to see the new production of Cyrano De Bergerac during the previews and even got a seat upgrade for the evening. It’s such a well-known story that’s been done so many times, I was quite interested in seeing how this adaptation differed and if it would take things in a different direction. The…

Love, Loss & Chianti

Friday night saw the press night of Love, Loss & Chianti, a double bill of works by acclaimed poet Christopher Reid. Currently showing at the Riverside Studios in Hammersmith, Love, Loss & Chianti runs two hours, including a 20 minute interval, and is on until the 17th May. The first poem, A Scattering, is a…

God’s Dice

In November I went down to the Soho Theatre to see God’s Dice, a new play by David Baddiel about the power of belief in our modern world, and the quest for truth. It sounded like an interesting juxtaposition of belief in god and belief in science, so I grabbed a friend and went to…

Solaris

In late October I ventured out to Hammersmith to see the brand new production of Solaris at the Lyric Hammersmith, which is a rare treat as not a lot of sci-fi makes it to the stage for adaptation. Based on the well-known novel by the same name, the play revolves around the occupants of a…

Jekyll / Hyde

Last night I was invited to try out Fire Hazard Games‘ newest street game, Jekyll/Hyde, currently hosted at the Vault Festival. The immersive game is set up for teams of one to three players and works through a website that provides the teams with clues and riddles to solve. Jekyll/Hyde runs for approximately two and…

The Wolves In The Walls

Though I was not in the company of children in the appropriate age range, I really needed to experience this one! Another play based on the work of one of my favourite authors, not something to be missed. So I grabbed a friend and headed out to see The Wolves In The Walls at the…

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…
