REVIEW: The Great Gatsby at Greenwich Theatre

The last 3 years have seen quite the resurgence in popularity of F Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, buoyed by the blockbusting Baz Luhrmann movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire. It was 2013 and ’14's theme of the moment, trickling down from...

REVIEW: Antic Disposition’s Henry V

In a military hospital just outside Agincourt, France, British soldiers, exhausted, injured and caked in mud, sit alongside French comrades as nurses tend to their wounds. It's a surprising opening to a play centred on one of England’s most celebrated military victories against the French,...
