Drama

A staple for us and for many if you fancy a more traditional play. When we first started Everything Theatre it was specifically to review drama. We’ve branched out over the years, but it will always be a favourite of ours.

Tomorrow, Arts Theatre – Review

Pros: A highly original concept, explored through brilliant writing and exceptional performances. Cons: Some moments are slightly out of line with the overriding tone.

Pros: The story is so captivating that the lengthy running time passed without me noticing. Cons: I couldn’t see the projections on the backdrop properly from my seat to the side of the stage. Dinah likes to describe herself as a ‘monster’ teenager. Abandoned at birth by her 15 year old mother, she goes from home to home until the day she is assigned to Lotte, an elderly and rather odd lady, who seems particularly keen on fostering her.
