We are back on for brand-new biting black comedy Snowflakes, for which I was originally due to chair a post-show Q&A in April 2020. The inaugural play from Dissident Theatre Company now premieres this autumn at the Old Red Lion Theatre.
Wildly funny new musical The Pleasure Garden takes a peek through the bushes to discover the bawdy history of Vauxhall’s history as a hedonistic playground. It premieres at Vauxhall’s own Above the Stag Theatre, on the edge of the park where the story is set.
Lately is the third new play premiered by and specially created for new writing company Proforca Theatre to be performed at London’s Lion & Unicorn Theatre. Terri Paddock hosts a Q&A.
How far are you willing to go to get what you most desire? That’s the question at the bloody heart of Salome. And it’s a question that so fascinates Lazarus Theatre that they’re now having a third go at Oscar Wilde’s provocative 1891 tragedy based on the Biblical tale.
If it weren’t for Covid-19, we probably wouldn’t have Jersey Boys back in the West End. The return of the blockbuster Broadway bio-musical about The Four Seasons closed in the West End in 2017 after nine years, first at the 1727-seat Prince Edward Theatre followed by the 1232-seat Piccadilly Theatre.
Five spine-tingling ghost stories are woven into the action on one stormy night in When Darkness Falls, premiering this month at the Park Theatre. All are grounded in folklore from the island of Guernsey, where the play is set and where its co-writer and director Paul Morrissey grew up.

Post-lockdown, Lazarus Theatre returns to the stage with a revival of their 2019 gender-twist version of Oscar Wilde’s Salome, in a limited season at London’s Southwark Playhouse. Having chaired a lively discussion on this piece two years ago, I’m delighted to reunite with Lazarus for a fresh go.
Well done to the Be More Chill company. This new musical had just had its successful UK premiere and announced a lengthy extension at The Other Palace when Covid shut it down in March 2020.
A mocking tweet over the veracity of the ‘self-made’ adjective launches Jasmine Lee-Jones’ play Seven Methods of Killing Kylie Jenner, now transferred to the Royal Court’s Downstairs main house after its premiere in the Upstairs studio two years ago.
I have become obsessed with where the money goes in The Money Live. When my neighbour Charlotte and I attended the “part game, part moral debate, part theatrical experience” earlier this week, the cash pot (initially £296, reaching nearly £400 as more ‘silent witness’ audience members paid a £20 upgrade to join the action) rolled over as no unanimous decision was agreed.
For me, the feeling of missing theatre (when there isn’t really much happening) makes me incredibly sad, but missing out on theatre (because I am not making the effort to be a part of it) makes me unbearably anxious. I have to get back to Theatre Terri.
After two West End seasons, The Kite Runner, an unforgettable theatrical tour de force based on Khaled Hosseini’s best-selling novel, embarks on a new UK tour. I catch up with the cast at the Churchill Theatre, Bromley.

As part of the industry-invite, opening night performance of In Search of a White Identity, the first new play developed and produced in association with The Actors Centre, I’ll chair a discussion about both the play and the theatre’s future plans.
I first fell in love with Once after seeing the original 2007 independent Irish film. Then again when I the Tony Award-winning musical adaptation had its West End premiere in 2013. And now again on the musical’s first major UK tour.
I laughed my head off watching Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em, and afterwards, got onto the wonderfully kitsch 1970s set myself to interview stars Joe Pasquale and Sarah Earnshaw and writer-director Guy Unsworth.
