We are swiftly approaching theatre festival season – Brighton Fringe kicked off on 5 May and it won’t be long before the biggest theatre festival in the world, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, rolls around once more. At the Omnibus Theatre, Clapham, the second of the year’s three festivals, And That’s Another Story, has kicked off.
The Sir John Cass School at London Metropolitan University have decided to try something different for this year’s final showcase on their Theatre course.
