From the audience at the Duke of York’s Theatre, it’s clear that Shirley Valentine is a much loved story and after seeing Sheridan Smith’s performance, I think it’s only going to receive further love and praise.
One of the London stage hits of the immediate post-pandemic period, 2.22 A Ghost Story opened with a big gala night in its new home. The big attraction on this occasion is the West End debut of Cheryl (her name now a simple mononym rather than the Tweedy she once was as one-fifth of pop band Girls Aloud).
It is a testament to Danny Robins’ 2:22 – A Ghost Story at the Criterion Theatre that many people go back for a second viewing – this is lots of fun as you try to spot what is going on and notice foreshadowing. But you will still jump out of your seat!
Supernatural thriller 2:22 – A Ghost Story returns for a new West End season. After breaking box office records for a new play at the Noel Coward Theatre, the show will play at the Gielgud Theatre for ten weeks only from 4 December 2021.
While Danny Robins’ debut play 2: 22 A Ghost Story is adept at ratcheting up the tension, the biggest source of it is whether Lily Allen, making her West End stage debut, would be up to the task.
Lily Allen is to make her West End debut in the world premiere of Danny Robins’ new play 2:22 – A Ghost Story at London’s Noël Coward Theatre from 3 August to 16 October 2021 (press night is 11 August). The production will feature Julia Chan, Hadley Fraser and Jake Wood and will be directed by Matthew Dunster.

Kit Harington and Johnny Flynn star in Matthew Dunster’s production of True West now playing at the Vaudeville Theatre. Love London Love Culture rounds up the reviews…
Squeezed into a lean and tightly filled two hours, Sam Shepard’s True West is an acerbic glimpse of domestic dysfunctionality that plays out in sweltering Southern California, a blasted backfiring of the American Dream.
Martin McDonagh is a good writer. I have to state this because based on this production of A Very Very Very Dark Matter at the Bridge Theatre audiences may not be so convinced.
There’s plenty of Halloween treats to choose from all across London, so if you fancy doing something a little bit spooky this week then here’s a selection of highlights…

Matthew Dunster directs Martin McDonagh’s new play A Very Very Very Dark Matter at the Bridge Theatre. Love London Love Culture rounds up the reviews…
Having seen the Bridge Theatre’s latest, Martin McDonagh’s A Very Very Very Dark Matter, my bonkers quota is through the roof.
Very very very feeble: Martin McDonagh’s latest play, A Very Very Very Dark Matter at the Bridge Theatre, is poorly written, self-plagiarising and lacks imagination.
