Not long left to see two of the Featured Show campaigns I’ve been working on recently: Crystal Clear at the Old Red Lion Theatre and Sherlock Holmes and The Invisible Thing, which takes London’s most famous detective home to Baker Street. Both finish this weekend!
With Crystal Clear, “White Deer have mounted something big theatres don’t even try and attempt”. The company’s efforts to ensure the production is accessible to visually impaired audiences – including “fully integrated” audio description – have impressed critics and audiences alike. Check out review highlights and show photos – and then get booking!
The performances are the strongest feature of this production of Crystal Clear at the Old Red Lion Theatre, along with its access provisions.

As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A series, on Tuesday 7 May 2019, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock talks to writer Rachel Tookey and the company of Bromley Bedlam Bethlehem. Got any questions?
Written and directed by mother-daughter duo Jacqueline and Tamar Saphra, The Noises is an intimate tale that illustrates the Venn diagram of relationships involving the family dog.
The Noises is about a dog, played by Amy McCallister, whose physicality of performance is unwavering and really serves to underline the canine nature of the character she is playing. She embodies Luna as a textured, multi-faceted character (and dog), and it’s very impressive.
Here are a few reads from Emma Clarendon’s Love London Love Culture that proved particularly popular in March.
Raw, insightful and brutally honest, Tom Ratcliffe’s play Circa returns to London following its premiere at The Vaults Festival in 2016.

Here is LLLC’s guide to some of the best theatre productions opening in the capital in March.
Maroussia Vladi’s In Search of Applause is an intriguing one-woman show, a quiet and reflective piece about what drives us to make the decisions we do (or not), presented with charm, creativity and gentle humour.
