I don’t always make it through the Oxfordshire lanes to the gorgeous, eccentric, water-wheeled Mill at Sonning, but the thought of Issy van Randwyck as Judith Bliss in Hay Fever lured me. Caught the show en route to the airport, so I started writing this on a Croatian long-distance bus.
‘Will surely soon be a contemporary classic’: THE GIFT – Theatre Royal Stratford East & Touring
New touring play The Gift from Eclipse is a wonderfully complex and emotionally powerful account of race and Empire.
‘The draw is Christie’s deft writing’: WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION – County Hall ★★★★
Everyone loves an Agatha Christie tale. Unlike the films and programmes involving Ms Marple or Poirot that are often repeated on television, Witness For The Prosecution (which is directed by Lucy Bailey) doesn’t have a familiar marquee protagonist at the centre of its narrative.
’A thrilling night at the theatre’: WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION – County Hall ★★★★
Witness For The Prosecution is a glorious fusion of classic storytelling, first class production values and top-notch acting.
