No Sex (in the front row) Please, We’re British

In 1971, the British Farce No Sex Please, We’re British opened in London’s West End (starring Michael Crawford) and ran for sixteen years. Last night I went to see a performance of Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown at the Playhouse Theatre. A musical comedy farce about four separate women’s disastrous love lives. […]


Elegies For Angels, Punks and Raging Queens is a song cycle with music by Janet Hood and lyrics and additional text by Bill Russell. The work features songs and monologues inspired by the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt and Edgar Lee Masters’ Spoon River Anthology.

Creditors – Brockley Jack Studio

I was relatively unfamiliar with Strindberg’s lesser known play Creditors, I only knew that the sensational Anna Chancellor had starred at the Donmar Warehouse in Alan Rickman’s production (can’t believe I missed that one!) back in 2008. So I was interested to catch it at the Brockley Jack Studio – who recently took home the […]

Easter Theatre Treats

With Easter Sunday just around the corner, I thought it might be nice to take a look at some of the West End shows that fit in nicely with this time of year. So why not save the calories and buy yourself a trip to the theatre instead of a chocolate egg? Or treat yourself […]

Hugh Maynard – Hippodrome Casino

  As a big fan of Miss Saigon and having seen the new production four times I had an inkling this might be an event that would tick all the boxes. I wasn’t disappointed and in fact it exceeded my very high expectations. This wonderfully intimate venue with Cabaret style seating welcomed a mixed audience […]

Return to the Forbidden Planet – New Wimbledon Theatre

As a self-confessed Rocky Horror Picture Show fan, I was really looking forward to seeing the similar spoof style show, Return to the Forbidden Planet. A retelling of The Tempest, using Shakespearian dialogue, with a live 1950/60s rock-a-billy soundtrack, all set in a B-Movie, Sci-Fi adventure in Space. Sounds like a bit of a wild […]

Bad Jews – Arts Theatre

  After London Underground banned the publicity posters for this production, citing concerns of causing offence, the buzz of anticipation surrounding it’s opening have spiralled and I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to see Bad Jews. Bad Jews by Joshua Harmon, a highly acclaimed family Drama running for just 11 weeks at The […]
