I see a lot of theatre productions, obviously, and whilst I still enjoy seeing new shows, new ideas and a creative piece that is genuinely exciting, I am starting to feel apathetic to much of what I see.
It’s been a bumper week for rape. Harvey Weinstein was indicted. Tommy Robinson was jailed for filming the accused in a grooming gang trial outside Leeds Crown Court. The world’s most durable feminist Dr Germaine Greer told Hay Literary Festival that most rape cases were ‘just bad sex’ rather than serious crimes, and in Connecticut a man got his cock out in court to prove it didn’t match his accuser’s description.
I’m not usually crazy about rankings and hierarchy in the creative arts so, please, see this as more of a summary of all the shows that really shook me. Except for the Number One. I’m all about cheerleading that star at the top of my own personal Christmas tree. But I loved each of these shows and, if you caught them, I hope you did too.
