Somerset Maughan’s 1930s play For Services Rendered surfaced last at Chichester, in the heart of the WW1 anniversary years, and reminded me how much theatre taught me about that war and, not least, its aftermath.
‘Handsomely staged production’: PICTURES OF DORIAN GRAY – Jermyn Street Theatre ★★★
This production of Pictures of Dorian Gray at Jermyn Street Theatre is intriguing, and offers chances to see the parts played differently, but there are inevitable losses.
‘A production of highs & lows’: PICTURES OF DORIAN GRAY – Jermyn Street Theatre ★★★
It was a bold idea on Tom Littler’s part to think of adapting Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray into a multi gender-swapping stage production.
‘Still topical & relevant’: OF MICE & MEN – Touring ★★★
In this touring production, Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men highlights the effects of climate change, economic uncertainty and migration on people’s lives.
