My recent theatre trips have included A Lesson from Aloes, A Hundred Words for Snow and Strike Up the Band. Here’s a round-up of my on-the-night reactions to each.
A Hundred Words of Snow, Tatty Hennessy’s coming-of-age adventure story, officially received its West End premiere last night at Trafalgar Studios, where Gemma Barnett stars until 30 March 2019. Check out our gallery of brand-new West End production photography – and then get booking!
Find out what the critics made of Daniel Aukin’s production of Admissions at the Trafalgar Studios.
I’m genuinely not sure Admissions could be done much better than it’s done here. If you come expecting an entertaining comedy that will make you occasionally go ‘oh actually that’s a good point’ you won’t leave disappointed.
A Hundred Words for Snow is a perfectly crafted one-woman show that touches, entertains and teaches, as it explores grief and polar exploration – a charming performance from Gemma Barnett.
Tatty Hennessy’s debut play A Hundred Words for Snow is a female monologue about loss and polar exploration that retains its attractive brightness and sass.
Louise Jameson and Thomas Mahy reprise their roles in Robert Chevara’s acclaimed production of Philip Ridley’s Vincent River, transferring to Trafalgar Studios from Park Theatre.
In the first of my two back-to-back King’s Head Theatre post-show Q&As, I was at Trafalgar Studios for the West End premiere of Kevin Elyot’s first play, Coming Clean, 37 years after the actor-turned-writer made his playwriting debut with it at London’s Bush Theatre.
