Lobster, Theatre 503 – Review

Pros: Very entertaining comedy with excellent performances from Louise Beresford and Alexandra Reynolds. Cons: Could have further developed the theme of issues faced by women and lesbian couples in today’s Britain. The world is your oyster, or so they say.

After breaking up, J and K bump into each other at a friend’s party. From ...

Cons: Besides the bleakness of the topic, at times the show can be a little muddled and it’s hard to follow what writer Chistophen Chen is aiming for with some scenes. Into the Numbers is a brave play. It takes not one but two horrific events and ties them together, trying to comprehend both, whilst making it clear ...
