“We need you to sit in a park for the afternoon” – surely a phrase any actor would love to hear on a warm summer day. That’s what Marlene Sidaway and Max Fricker got up to in preparation for bringing the bench-set Pigeons to Camden Fringe this summer. Take a look at the evidence, then book your tickets!

Beneath the Blue Rinse, running at London’s Park Theatre – along with a Glover short called The Answer – is a morality tale where the elderly get their own back on a society that would rather forget they existed.
Beneath the Blue Rinse is polemical; packed with scathingly humorous and myth-busting scenes and information about the lives of older people.
Tom Glover’s play Beneath The Blue Rinse successfully and hilariously breaks through stereotypes relating to how people see the elderly.
With over 100 cast, writers, directors and crew, and 25 plays (none of which were by Agatha Christie!) spread over 7 programmes, Sphinx Theatre’s Women Centre Stage: Power Play Festival was a full-on day indeed for those of us who stayed the course from midday to nearly 10pm… Though I was 90% caffeine by the end, the buzz I was experiencing was one of delight at the sheer breadth and quality of the theatre we’d been privileged to witness.
The middle session of Women Centre Stage: Power Play Festival saw our first trip into the Hampstead’s main house for PRIDE and Prejudice.
