Love London Love Culture’s Emma Clarendon take a look at what is being said about Deborah Bruce’s new play Dixon and Daughters, making its debut at the National Theatre.
‘Has a vigour that is at times quite intoxicating’: FAVOUR – Bush Theatre
Ambreen Razia’s play Favour looks into the lives of a trio of women from the same family but of rather different generations. It does so with a vigour that is at times quite intoxicating and although it is 95 minutes straight through, the time fairly flies by.
‘Equally impressive’: SWEATBOX / BLIS-TA – Clean Break (Online review)
Although some theatres are tentatively reopening, the creative vigour of other companies like Clean Break is undimmed.
JOANNE – Soho Theatre
On my way to see this show, I had to walk across Soho in central London. No fewer than five people asked me for money; one was a real hassle. Yes, I know the government says that the economy is booming, but the record number of homeless in the capital tells a very different story. Yes, I bumped into five of them in 15 minutes, although I know there are thousands more. And maybe one of them is, like this play, called Joanne.
