The comic and the personal meld beautifully in this honest and heartwarming show, Carly Jurman’s Unlovable.
Ophelia Rewound is an autobiographical, interactive, solo performance devised, performed and directed by Antigoni Spanou. Threading together the story of Ophelia, and Antigoni’s own experiences of depression and attempted suicide, this is a deeply personal and moving theatrical experience. Starting at the end, our first role as audience is to witness and feel. This is … Continue reading Ophelia Rewound at the Camden People’s Theatre
Space Age Love Songs is a treasure trove of goodies, brought together to create a feel-good and compassionate queer love story.
All or Nothing Repertory Theatre Company’s My Other Self: The Evolution of Shakespeare’s Richard III weaves together elements of Henry VI Parts 2 and 3 and Richard III to show the influences and events that shaped Richard into one of Shakespeare’s most fascinating villains.
The Werewolf of Washington Heights is a play by Christie Perfetti Williams that was first staged in the US in 2017.
In a special Camden Fringe edition of A Glimpse Inside, I met up with TL Wiswell to talk about her new show Space Age Love Songs, running at the Hen and Chickens from 21 August 2019.
Our Walk Through the World is a collection of six sharply written, short plays by Ross Howard that highlight some of the absurdities of modern life.
Mary Jane Figtree’s play is based on the concept of an Italian 90s play called Orgasmo e Pregiudizio. With this, her first play, she has written something that succeeds in being both funny yet emotionally resonant.
Sh*t Happens at Camden People’s Theatre is full of humour, honesty, poetry and physical theatre.
The Geminus is an atmospheric new play by Ross Dinwiddy and is based on Joseph Conrad’s novella The Secret Sharer. By incorporating a romantic twist, Dinwiddy creates an emotional centre to the piece, which is so important when translating prose to the stage.
One thing I’m really loving about the Camden Fringe is the breadth of creativity and experimentation. Scenic Reality is a prime example of a fresh piece of new writing that explores different storytelling techniques.
suspect this show will have a future, evolving life, and it is well worth checking out if it appears on your radar. I’d certainly be interested in seeing what they do with it next.
Full disclosure, I was not excited about seeing a show about Boris Johnson. Frankly I’m feeling a tad Boris-ed out these days, but fortunately, given a lively and plentiful audience, not everyone seems to be turned off by the subject matter.
This year I have the great privilege of getting to cover lots of the Camden Fringe shows, my only regret is that I can’t see them all (literally impossible, so many shows running, Londoners check it out, it is a treasure trove of varied goodies).
The View Upstairs at the Soho Theatre was reminded me just how transformative theatre can be.
Last night I had the great pleasure of seeing Whodunnit (Unrehearsed) at the Park Theatre. Today my mouth feels a whole lot wider from excessive laughing and smiling. That is a thing right? Aching mouth aside, this is a much needed dose of pure silliness.
In this, my latest instalment of A Glimpse Inside, I had the great pleasure of speaking to playwright Paul Stevens about his new play True Colours at the Hope Theatre.
Recently I was lucky enough to catch up with playwright Michael Dennis to talk about his debut full-length play, Dark Sublime, running at the Trafalgar Studios from 25 June 2019 for a six-week.
Recently I was lucky enough to catch up with Michael Black whose latest play Starved will be coming to the Bread and Roses Theatre at the end of the month (30 April to 11 May 2019).
