Review: 3*** Billy the Kid – The Unicorn Theatre Via @digitaltheatre @UnicornTheatre

Tweetingit: 3* Two generations collide and ultimately bond through a shared love of football. A neat two hander draws out a moving story of the beautiful game and its effect on our lives. Two people on opposite sides of life can learn much from each other if they only take the time to listen. BillyContinue reading “Review: 3*** Billy the Kid – The Unicorn Theatre Via @digitaltheatre @UnicornTheatre”

Review: Henry V – Live from Stratford-upon-Avon Via @digitaltheatre @HassellAlex @TheRSC

Tweetingit: 5***** A peerless performance from a superlative cast delving into the mind and machinations of a most charismatic King. Accessing Digital Theatre for the first time, I felt like a kid cut loose in a sweet shop. The theatrical equivalent to Netflix is easy to navigate and provides a mouth-watering selection of shows recordedContinue reading “Review: Henry V – Live from Stratford-upon-Avon Via @digitaltheatre @HassellAlex @TheRSC”

Review: 4**** The Dad’s Army Radio Show @DadsArmyRadio

Tweetingit: 4* Classic comedy given fresh impetus with two brilliant actors voicing an entire cast of characters. A real treat! Shadowed by the gothic splendour of St. Pancras station sits the British Library. And buried deep inside its Knowledge Centre is a well-appointed theatre which played host to a wonderful production of the Dad’s ArmyContinue reading “Review: 4**** The Dad’s Army Radio Show @DadsArmyRadio”

Review: 3*** Lipstick – Southwark Playhouse @swkplay

Tweetingit: 3* Two girls play schoolboys with a different perception of what it’s like to feel different. An intelligent, well observed play raised by some outstanding acting. In a world where sexual identity is nothing more than a routine conversation piece, Lipstick is hardly breaking new territory. It does however provide a showcase for twoContinue reading “Review: 3*** Lipstick – Southwark Playhouse @swkplay”

Review 3*** Falling in Love Again – King’s Head Theatre

Tweetingit: 3* An enjoyable if lightweight tale of the King of England and Queen of Hollywood. Some things never change! With exquisite timing the premiere of Falling in Love Again lands at the King’s Head Theatre. Slap bang in the middle of this week’s crisis in the Royal Family one wonders if mystical powers areContinue reading “Review 3*** Falling in Love Again – King’s Head Theatre”

Review 4**** A Taste of Honey – Trafalgar Studios @NationalTheatre @TrafStudios

A gritty northern drama from the very top draw. A taste of honey just got that much sweeter. Once upon a time, theatre director Joan Littlewood took a pinch of inspiration and mixed it with a cupful of talent to create the Theatre Workshop. Based at Theatre Royal Stratford East the workshop gave many youngContinue reading “Review 4**** A Taste of Honey – Trafalgar Studios @NationalTheatre @TrafStudios”
