Currently running in stage in the Little at Southwark Playhouse, Lazarus Theatre’s version of Oscar Wilde’s Salomé proves to be a daring, electric, and exhausting feat of theatre.
The intimacy of Southwark Playhouse and some judicious rewriting by director Ricky Dukes creates a more focused, stylised production of Wilde’s scandalous take on the story of Salomé.
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.
Lazarus Theatre Company’s production of Macbeth effectively mixes the old and the new, adding to this sense that Macbeth is a cautionary tale for every era.
A bold production of the Scottish Play from Lazarus Theatre with a heavy focus on power and ambition – a great introduction to Macbeth and Shakespeare.
As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A series, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock escapes to Never Land care of Lazarus Theatre company’s new ensemble take on Peter Pan at London’s Greenwich Theatre. Got any questions?

Award-winning ensemble company Lazarus Theatre has announced their third annual residency at Greenwich Theatre with a 2020 line-up of three re-imagined classics – Macbeth, Hedda Gabler and Peter Pan – all with post-show Q&As chaired by MyTheatreMates co-founder Terri Paddock.
This week, I chaired my second of three post-show Q&As with Lazarus Theatre Company as part of their 2019 residency at Greenwich Theatre – their highly acclaimed return production of Lord of the Flies.
In my first of three post-show Q&As this year with Lazarus Theatre, I was at Greenwich Theatre for this pioneering ensemble company’s exciting re-examination of Shakespeare’s The Tempest.
Lazarus Theatre’s The Tempest is a dynamic production of a potentially tedious play, bound together in a stark & bold design – Alexander da Fonseca gives a standout performance.

As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A series, on Tuesday 12 February, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock chairs the first of three 2019 post-show Q&As for Lazarus Theatre, to Shakespeare’s The Tempest. Got any questions?
A bold & multicoloured take on a well-loved classic, with comedy and music running through the entire piece – and an unforgettable Pyramus & Thisbe.
Lord of the Flies is a strong and stirring production. Making a classic story feel as if it was written yesterday – the performances are excellent.
William Golding’s Lord of the Flies has been dapted for the stage by Nigel Williams and directed with real verve by Ricky Dukes, with some key parts from the original all-male story given to female actors.
Lazarus Theatre, the pioneering theatre company that specialises in reimagining, slimmed-down classics, has secured a year-long residency at south London’s Greenwich Theatre.
The plays may have been written 420-odd years apart, but I was really struck by how many parallels there were between the discussion I hosted last week, to the European premiere of Jordan Tannahill’s Late Company at Trafalgar Studios, and the one I hosted last night, to Christopher Marlowe‘s 16th-century classic Edward II.
From the atmospheric parade of its opening to the desperate brutality with which it ends, Ricky Dukes’ production immerses its audience in a world of toxic masculinity and political power-play that rings as true today as it surely ever did.
As part of her post-show Q&A series, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock will host a post-show panel discussion on feminism and misogyny onstage following Lazarus Theatre’s re-imagining of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew at London’s Brockley Jack Theatre on Thursday 30 July 2017.
