Theatre Review

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...

REVIEW: A Doll’s House at The Space

Nora and her husband, Torvald, seem to have it all. A beautiful home, beautiful children, and an upcoming promotion for Torvald that’ll solidify their long term financial security. But behind Nora’s calm, agreeable mask of a face lies a burning dissatisfaction, and a secret that...

REVIEW: Stop! The Play at the Trafalgar Studios

A lot of theatre, possibly even most, is staged with a firm purpose in mind, to make a political statement or to air a philosophical approach, to educate, or critique. But sometimes - just sometimes - it exists for the sole purpose of making you...

REVIEW: The Dogs of War at the Old Red Lion Theatre

"Mental health" is one of those bizarre phrases where it's mere mention makes you instantly imagine a vision of it's absence, evoking thoughts of depression, or schizophrenia, or anorexia, just three of the hundreds of disorders that point to a lack of mental health rather...

REVIEW: Peter Pan at the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre

The story of Peter Pan, the boy who wouldn't grow up, is one absolutely synonymous with childhood, a name so embedded with meaning that it does for perpetual youth what Robin Hood does for wealth redistribution. Less familiar, though, is that of his creator, JM...

REVIEW: The Flannelettes at the King’s Head Theatre

Setting a play in a women’s domestic abuse refuge sounds like a reliable recipe for an evening of misery. But with Richard Cameron’s pen behind it, The Flannelettes manages to be not only thoughtful, poignant and challenging, but also warm and funny - and somehow...

REVIEW: Cardboard Citizens’ Benefit

It's an unusual play that doesn't have audiences screaming in their heads at the protagonist to do something differently. To say something else, or to make another choice. But imagine if you had the power to stop the play, and go on stage yourself, replace...

REVIEW: The Lonely Soldier Monologues at The Cockpit

The war on sexual discrimination is over. Equality has been achieved, and that’s why we don’t need to talk about feminism any more. Right? RIGHT? Well obviously not. Despite the fact that the gender pay gap in the UK is at an all time low, women...

REVIEW: The Candidate at Theatre Delicatessen

Just in case you don’t use social media, watch TV, read a newspaper, walk down the road with your eyes open or open your post, then it’s time for a news flash. After months of political posturing, debating and leafletting, election time has arrived, and...
