It seems to be a great time to be a female playwright, and Ifeyinwa Frederick’s irreverently noisy, and often hilarious, debut play The Hoes is proof that there is a lot of upcoming new talent waiting to make its mark.
It is a joy to have Greg Doran’s RSC hosting a musical about Joan Littlewood: itself a debut by the composer Sam Kenyon creating book, music and lyrics, and with a cast full of RSC first-timers including Clare Burt as Joan herself.
Clare Burt makes her RSC debut in the lead role of Miss Littlewood, a new musical about theatre director, Joan Littlewood. Previews begin in the Swan Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon on 22 June 2018.
