The One @ Soho Theatre

We all like to think that our relationships are unique, and no one else knows us quite as well. But for the couple in Vicky Jones’s award-winning debut play, it may just be true. Harry (Rufus Wright) and ex-student Jo (Phoebe Waller-Bridge), play by their own rules. They use playful lies to distract them from […]

Moonlight and Magnolias @ Progress Theatre

By Rebecca Roberts Ron Hutchinson’s quick witted, heart-thumping play reveals a fast paced vulgar Hollywood system of greed and insatiable uncertainty, where no one reads and everyone is hungry. His delightfully cynical account of how Gone with the Wind is rush-written in five days in 1939 New York is splintered with anticipation for the holocaust. […]

The 8th annual WriteFest @ Progress Theatre

The night was filled with the sweet lyrics of Carol Anne Duffy, the wise words of Christopher Robin, the informed advice of Roald Dahl and some cheesy jokes – and that was just from the compere Jon Speed. Although he set the bar high, with some lofty introductions, the plays, written by local winners of […]

The plainly named Mike Smith is a signalled smirk from the talented artist, who is ironically flirting with a fictional everyman. What we get, however is a character ripe with hip-hop clichés, […]

Dan Watson’s Jacket Dance @ Chisenhale Dance Space

by Jenna Corker Without falling victim to profundity: Dan Watson’s Jacket Dance is a poignantly hilarious and witty observation on contemporary dance today and its predictability is spot on. The parody is filled with impressive lifts, gone amiss, spoken word, taken from all the loves songs and over dramatised contact between dancers.  Moments typically created […]

Dehli2Dublin @ Norden Farm

Dehli2Dublin gave a playfully unique and pumped up performance, which enlivined the often sober Norden Farm audience. The Canadian Bhangra-Celtic band with dub beats and reggae rhythms are as fused as they appear. With a kilted Korean, tie-dyed DJ, goth-rock violinist, Bhangra percussionist and cute lead singer, the stylised band would translate into the perfect […]
