One of the reasons that Philip Ridley is the crown prince of imaginative playwriting is that he came at theatre from leftfield. In the 1980s, he didn’t go to drama school — he went to art college instead. This freed his mind from following established theatre conventions, and so anything was possible.
Latest trio of monologues from Philip Ridley are performed in the dark: both chilling and humorous.

There’s a well-earned hurrah (or should that be scream?) for this evening of hokum that’s currently playing in Birmingham over the Halloween fortnight.

“Ghoulish”: Suitably disturbing in its content and pleasingly rounded in its construction, Peapod Productions’ The Moonlit Road and other ghostly tales still has uneven patches in its presentation.
The sandman doesn’t throw sand in your eyes to help you sleep, oh no. That’s just what parents want children to believe so they aren’t scared of the real sandman. The real sandman is horrible. If you’re still awake, he steals your eyes and puts them into his little bag and takes them up to his little, bald bird-children who live on the moon. Then they eat them.
