The Sisterhood, Leicester Square Theatre – Review

Credit: Jamie Scott-Smith

Pros: Compelling performances, excellent comedic timing, and a clever use of modern language Cons: Not the best space for this piece with some poor directing and staging choices I knew a bit about Molière before attending Leicester Square Theatre on Saturday evening, thanks to my studies of the French Neoclassical era of theatre history, but had yet see one of his works performed. After seeing Ranjit Bolt’s adapted The Sisterhood, I know that I will be back for more humorous ...

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged), The Bread and Roses Theatre – Review

Credit: Everything Theatre

Pros: Builds a fantastic relationship between audience and performers. Fast paced, energetic and hilariously clever.

Rosie Wilby: The Conscious Uncoupling, Sweet Dukebox (Brighton Festival) – Review

A walk along the beach to the venue made a nice change from dashing around London, and the venue was a lovely traditional pub with friendly staff and a small ...

Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens, King’s Head Theatre – Review

Credit: Will Frost

Pros: A cult show for disco lovers and 90s nostalgics. Cons: The singing needs some polishing. I am writing this review with my jaw still sore from all the laughter, while proudly displaying my “Space Vixen” badge. If you – like me – grew up in the 90s watching music channels and Japanese superhero cartoons, you will love everything about this show. Saucy Jack’s is a dodgy nightclub hidden in a dark corner of the galaxy. Every night, under the ...
