Out of the Forest Theatre’s contribution to the genre comes in the form of Bury the Hatchet, self-described as a “true crime podcast meets bluegrass musical” and all sorts of fun with it.
Temperatures soar in more ways than one in Joseph Skelton’s Fat Jewels, a dark and deeply unsettling tale of abuse, manipulation and mental fragility.
A really fun, disturbing and unique piece blessed with performers who can carry the material off.
Written by Joseph Skelton and directed by Luke Davies, Fat Jewels isn’t your average play about male bonding.
Louise Coulthard’s writing is of a very high quality, and a play that could have been worthy or predictable in different hands is moving, complex and real. Cockamany is a true delight, and Coulthard a serious talent.
This beautifully written show is hilarious, heart-warming and painfully realistic; an emotional rollercoaster that will leave you in tears and wanting to hug your own loved ones tight. Don’t forget your tissues.
In the world of Cockamamy, a Lustrum Award-winning play, Louise Coulthard uses her own experiences to depict the experience of how dementia can affect a household.
Slightly frustrating at times, but Adam & Eve provides a good starting point for discussions – some pertinent themes begin to be uncovered.
Who do you instinctively believe – the accuser or the accused? Tim Cook’s Adam & Eve does an intriguing job of subverting how we think such a drama might play out.
Following its critically acclaimed debut last year at the Brockley Jack, Broken Silence Theatre’s Adam & Eve is returning for a longer run at Islington’s Hope Theatre, now with new director Jennifer Davis at the helm.
Not that seating is perfect in many venues, but there are probably fewer things to consider. If you’re like me, however, and spend the vast majority of your time trundling around the Fringe, you’ll likely have begun to compile your own list of gripes.
Don’t be fooled by the jokes and parodies, Worth A Flutter play has a lot to say about the damage caused by the way men are taught to treat women.
Just a little over a week before Broken Silence Theatre’s acclaimed, modern-day take on Bible story Adam & Eve returns to London for a strictly limited run at the Hope Theatre. Sneak a peek at the new cast having fun in the rehearsal room – and then get booking!
Worth A Flutter written by Michael Head and directed by Jonathan Carr is a simple story of love and its complications that sadly misses the mark.
The first half of Michael Head’s Worth A Flutter is full of the kind of broad, sitcom-like humour of which I’m no real fan. But after the interval, a more thoughtful strand to his writing emerges.
In Worth A Flutter, which is written by Michael Head and directed by Jonathon Carr, one man finds there what he thinks is the answer to his unhappy love life.
Inspired by his memories of growing up in South East London, Michael Head’s Worth a Flutter is an enjoyable comedy with hidden depths – a love story whose protagonists are simultaneously too flawed to be heroes and too likeable to be villains.
Two hours of sexist lad ‘humour’ that all too often veers into soap territory, with performances of varying quality – more of a rank outsider than a dead cert.
