A lifelong fan who's always been far more comfortable watching theatre than making it, Liz Dyer fell into blogging very much by accident after joining the blog team at London Theatre Direct. From there, she began reviewing regularly for and (fellow Mate) Carn's Theatre Passion, before setting up her own site Theatre Things in 2015 to cover shows across London and Kent. She tweets from her blog at @theatrethingsuk and personally at @lizzid82.

‘Powerful, personal & poignant’: TALKING GODS – Arrows & Traps (Online review)

In Online shows, Opinion, Plays, Reviews by Liz DyerLeave a Comment

You wait all year for an Arrows & Traps production… and then five come along at once.
