REVIEW: Iris Theatre’s Pinocchio

We all know the story of Pinocchio; it's a tale so culturally engrained that any five-year-old could tell you "it's the one about the puppet boy with a nose that grows when he tells lies," and most would recall that he was made by a...

REVIEW: Secret Island by the Secret Studio Lab

There’s a definite thrill when it comes to signing up for something with a name like “Secret Theatre,” the ambiguity a feast for the imagination as you venture into the unknown. But with attendees all arriving with vastly different visions for their evening, like an...

REVIEW: Clairvoyant at Etcetera Theatre

Cheryl Fernandez Versini is back in the celebrity columns, her face once again adorning the gossip pages, but not, this time, because of a twist in her personal life. Instead, it’s because this year’s XFactor adverts have already started to emerge, a fact that can...

REVIEW: Chef at the Soho Theatre

How does a well-meaning girl desperate to be an astronaut grow into a convicted prisoner? What choices did she have to make for that to happen? And how much of an opportunity did she really have to shape those decisions? Currently playing at the Soho...

REVIEW: The Legacy at the Hope Theatre

What does “feminism” mean to you? Does it strike you almost as a form of extremism, women insisting on preferential treatment, upset about even the slightest of comments and the most jovial of bottom pats? Maybe it strikes you as something critically important, for exactly...
