I’m thrilled to reunite with Troupe – after events for acclaimed productions including The Sweet Science of Bruising, Rasheeda Speaking, Dear Brutus and The Cardinal – to chair a post-show Q&A for Simon Reade’s new adaptation of Christopher Isherwood’s 1964 novel A Single Man at London’s Park Theatre.
A theatrical experience that you will never forget – Eddie Redmayne revels in the role of the Emcee, but Jessie Buckley steals the show in Cabaret.
The Dog Beneath the Skin is a bit of a dog’s dinner and a disappointing end to a patchy Scandal Season.
Auden and Isherwood may have had no stomach for a real fight, but no one can say they didn’t weaponise their words in a piece like The Dog Beneath the Skin – a bid to blunt the attack on a free society’s cherished first principles, the most important of which is enlightenment.
Who knew that fascists could rhyme? WH Auden and Christopher Isherwood tackle inter-war Europe in The Dog Beneath The Skin at the Jermyn Street Theatre.
The Dog Beneath the Skin is like nothing else you’ll see in London at the moment, and as a piece of vintage theatre, as well as vintage poetry, may well be worth a look.
Dog Beneath the Skin is a bizarre, but ultimately very enjoyable play, marked with memorable performances from the entire cast – an excellent production of an undiscovered classic.
Jermyn Street Theatre’s dynamic 2018 spring season 2018 focuses on scandal and its impact with four plays: Woman Before a Glass, Mad as Hell, Hilda & Virginia and The Dog Beneath the Skin.
