It’s been much, much longer than I thought since I sat down to watch a main stage performance at the Royal Court – and ten years since I caught the first outing of Mam I’m ‘Ere.

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie bursts onto the stage in an effervescent whirlwind of unabashed vibrancy and fun.
We’re in a venue that certainly gives a grand old-school sense of occasion, and Les Misérables is nothing if not ultimate theatre.

He went from performing as one of the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band to playing with the legendary group itself; now Merseyside actor Mike Livesley is reviving the show that started it all one last time.
You’d need a heart of stone not to be charmed by the gentle joys of Guess How Much I Love You. Sam McBratney’s modern classic bedtime story gets the theatrical treatment thanks to established touring company Selladoor, and the result is a real delight.
The work of Tmesis has always examined the stuff of life with style, precision, humour and heart, and the company’s latest show Beyond Belief is no exception.

It is always a pleasure to get back to what is now known as Prescot Woodland Theatre, in church grounds where local success story MATE Productions stages its annual ensemble show. Treasure Island is something a bit different, but equally as at home in the setting.
