The Other Room’s The Story and Hela make a delightful and daring double bill of Welsh drama at Theatre503.
The image we’re left with is not one of violence in J’Ouvert at Theatre503, but of pride, friendship and resilience, and a community that’s prepared to keep fighting for as long as it takes to reclaim its voice and heritage.
J’ouvert, a debut play from Yasmin Joseph and the directorial debut of Rebekah Murrell, is an ambitious play, encompassing the spirit, commercialism and epic Notting Hill Carnival.
My recent theatre trips have included Like You Hate Me and The Amber Trap, two world premieres with women at their core. Here’s a round-up of my on-the-night reactions to each.
The actress chatted to Love London Love Culture’s Emma Clarendon about her latest role in Hannah Hauer-King’s premiere of The Amber Trap for Damsel Productions at London’s Theatre503.
Tabitha Mortiboy’s The Amber Trap is the fifth female-led play from Damsel Productions, which is dedicated to presenting work written and staged by women. We talk to Mortiboy about why companies like Damsel are so necessary to redress gender imbalance and how her play considers power structures… and stalking. Time to get booking!

Overseas pieces are not a common sight in UK theatres, but Theatre503 is doing its bit to change that with their latest offering: William Gregory’s translation of the Víctor Sánchez Rodríguez play Cuzco. Following a couple of readings, director Kate O’Connor came onboard and the result is this production – the play’s English language premiere.
Machu Picchu isn’t the only thing in ruins by the end of Cuzco, an intense two-hander about the fiery death of a relationship by Spanish playwright Víctor Sánchez Rodríguez.
Victor Sanchez Rodriguez’s Cuzco makes its English debut with translation by William Gregory. It is a passionate play about a couple She (Dilek Rose) and He (Gareth Kieran Jones) who find themselves on a belated gap year to Peru where they battle their approaches to Spanish and European Colonialism and their own relationship.
Director Kate O’Connor spoke to LLLC about her upcoming production of Cuzco at Theatre503.
The moments of pleasure are carefully balanced against the moments less satisfying, making The Art of Gaman at Theatre503 a difficult play to reconcile with.

If I have learned anything in my six years with Mountview, and four years of that conceiving, championing and teaching the MA in Creative Producing, it is that the title “creative producer” needs to be kept.
It is my last job of work for Mountview after six years with the school – helping the 12 producers on this year’s MA find their way to the end of the seven-week Catalyst Festival.
Let this production of Isaac Came Home From the Mountain go to the towns the writer drew on for inspiration, use their village halls if you must. I honestly believe this show has the chance to bring a lot of young, forgotten men back from the brink.
