Goodnight Mister Tom

Wilma’s Rating [rating=4] Goodnight Mister Tom is a wonderful story that has carried through the ages, from a children’s book (by Michelle Magorian), to the 1998 film and now done justice by this wonderful show that is brought to life perfectly for the stage. It tells the war time story of William Beech, played tonight […]

People Like Us/Happy Never After

Rating [rating=5] Reviewed by Ruthie Luff You never know what you’re going to get with a double bill, but People Like Us and Happy Never After are a pair of new, fantastic plays!   People Like Us, written by Jake Brunger, opens with a young couple preparing for dinner guests in a room filled with […]


Wilma’s Rating [rating=4] Spamalot is one of those shows that just has to be in the West End. When you want something fun, lighthearted and silly, this is the perfect show to go to. Thankfully, after two years on tour and a brief 7 week run at the Harold Pinter Theatre, Spamalot is back for […]

The Upstairs Room

Rating [rating=3] Reviewed by Ruthie Luff   The King’s Head Theatre in Islington opens it’s doors to the premiere of David K. O’Hara’s one-act play, The Upstairs Room.   The audience huddle in a tiny intimate space, where an array of buzzing lightbulbs hang over head from open wires, exposing a dingy, mold infested attic.

Sweet Smell of Success

Wilma’s Rating [rating=4] When you first walk into the Arcola Theatre, you wonder what you have let yourself in for. It is a building site (having just reopened after having extensive work done to it), with cables still hanging from the ceiling! The auditorium itself is like an old gutted pub. Hollow apart from the […]

It tells the story of a quiet young girl who keeps her self to herself and rarely ever leaves the sanctuary of her bedroom, playing the records her […]

Wilma’s rating [rating=5] Never before have I given 5 stars to a review (I believe there is always room for improvement) but in the case of Victor/Victoria I can find no faults. Perfectly crafted and staged beautifully in the Vault (a tunnel of the Southwark Playhouse) the catwalk like stage means the show goes on […]

Dracula 2012

The concept of putting on a show (especially one about vampires) in a church is great. Churches have a perfect sense of eerie calmness to them and so seeing this on Halloween sounded perfect to me! Sadly, Dracula 2012 was a real disappointment. Bringing actors and props into a church and putting a couple of […]
