What fiendish fashion will the cast of Bride of Wankenstein be wearing when they take to the Hen & Chickens Theatre stage from 9 to 13 October 2018? We can only guess from these behind-the-scenes images of their costume fitting. To see the costumes these evil geniuses have created, you’ll have to book tickets.
A double bill of monologues from writers Dominic Grace and Lesley Ross, performed respectively by Luke Adamson and Gregory Ashton form the structure of Odd Man Out. Both plays are vastly different yet synchronise and almost meet in the middle, surprisingly well.
As this is a one-woman show, the characters are realised only through Muggleton’s scathing commentaries in the mouth of once-literary but now blowsy Deborah, a superannuated Shirley Valentine from the Sydney or Sydenham suburbs: it’s quite hard to tell where the piece is set.
All the reviews of F*cking Men at the King’s Head referred to its setting ‘in the gay community’. If it does nothing else, Memphis writer Joe diPietro’s re-working of Arthur Schnitzler’s 1897 Viennese cycle of illicit courtship La Ronde proves there’s no such thing.
Not only can Shakespeare be considered to be England’s greatest playwright, he is probably the most prolific when it comes to performances of his work. The plays are amazingly flexible in the many ways they can be stage and the latest production of “The Tempest” at The Hope Theatre by the Thick as Thieves Production company is a lovely case in point.
When is a world premiere not a world premiere? When a near-identical play ran three months in Keswick in 2012. This narking misrepresentation aside, Richard Cameron‘s piece directed by Hull Truck founder Mike Bradwell has instantly credible characters and an interesting situation. Cheerful Delie is a ‘special needs’ girl in a woman’s body on holiday respite with her Aunty […]

We start with a curvaceous redhead gyrating in a red-lit Amsterdam window, and that’s Streaming’s first flaw: by telling its interesting three-stranded story in flashback it has already given too much away – a fundamental mistake for the sex workers this piece is all about. The characters are sharply drawn and brought to life by […]

Do yourself a favour if you’re thinking of going to Thark: don’t look it up on Wikipedia. The description of the plot runs to four convoluted paragraphs and won’t leave you any the wiser. What you need to know is it’s a 1920s farce of the kind that was the forerunner to all those ‘Whoops Vicar There […]

We have been here before. Many times, it feels: ‘stripped-down’ pub opera featuring the concomitant apparatus of skinny jeans, transfer tattoos, funky tights, DMs, bad haircuts, jazz beards and studentish ensembles. With its garret-full of debris, vodka bottles, cellphones, laptops and fairy lights, Carmen at the King’s Head does not disappoint. The chaise-longue on which […]

We could blame the Blumenthal zeitgeist, we could bemoan the jaded palates of Islington which demand the culinarily arcane be proffered in their domestic midst, but the main draw to ‘Fig’, a smallish shop-front gastro in otherwise mid-posh residential Barnsbury, is curiosity – chef Christoffer Hruskova has quickly snagged a reputation for alchemical cookery with […]
