Sh!it-faced Shakespeare – Hamlet

I’ve heard a lot about the Shitfaced Shakespeare shows, but am usually unable to attend them as they are set to start a little earlier than most shows in the West End and work keeps me from making it in time. I’ve previously seen the offshoot Oliver With A Twist and thought it was very…

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

When I heard that the same team that created the promenade experience of Julius Caesar at the Bridge Theatre were putting on a production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, I just had to grab tickets for the first preview to experience it for myself. While I feel calling this immersive theatre is a bit of…

The Mechanicals – Camden Fringe

I love me some fringe shows, so I booked to see a few at the Camden Fringe this year. One of them was The Mechanicals at the Etcetera Theatre. For this show, we got to choose our favourite Shakespeare scenes before entering the theatre, with 15 choices to pick from. The top 5 voted for…

Hamlet

I was lucky enough to be invited to the dress rehearsal of The Globe’s new run of Hamlet. I heard a lot about this season being more diverse and inclusive, so was really looking forward to seeing how it would work out. As a very new approach to casting, Michelle Terry, the new artistic director…

Shakespeare’s popular politics play is always a good one to watch, but this time there is another dimension to it. You have the choice to…

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…

Hamlet

I missed out on the sold out Almeida run of this production, so when the move to the West End was announced, I scrambled to grab tickets. I love a well done Hamlet production and this one is absolutely superb! Robert Icke’s production sees Hamlet modernised and traditional all at once, with a very modern stage and…

Spymonkey – The Complete Deaths

This one was one hell of a ride! But more on that later… We arrived at the Shoreditch Town Hall, which is a grand old building that looms over the pavement. This vestry hall turned arts and entertainment space is really something! You can still tell the original purpose it was built for but it…
