As ever, if you’re insatiable for new theatre, there are plenty of openings for you. In London, Space Dogs plays a short run at Theatre N16, Laura Linney makes her London stage debut in My Name Is Lucy Barton at the Bridge Theatre.
In Tomorrow Creeps at The Vaults writer (and GOLEM! Theatre co-founder) David Fairs has drawn his text from 16 Shakespeare works (including the sonnets) as well as a sprinkling of Kate Bush magic.
It’s that time of year again: the annual VAULT Festival is upon us, and looks set to be bigger and better than ever. There’s a lot to love about what goes on at this event, with an incredible range of theatre, comedy, music and refreshments on offer every day for eight weeks.
You might be forgiven for thinking that only certain Shakespeare plays are allowed to be produced in any given 12-month period – for example, last year I saw five different Twelfth Nights, and this year there are at least three Macbeths already on my radar.
Lots & lots of shows have their first performances in London and across the country this month, including new productions of Pinter’s The Birthday Party, Wilde’s Lady Windermere’s Fan, and Shakespeare’s All’s Well That Ends Well.
