Stranger Sings

The Vaults


If you’re a fan of the hit Netflix TV show Stranger Things, you are going to love this show. If you’ve never seen it, you’re going to be pretty lost – but there’s no doubt you’ll be absolutely wowed, as this is the best musical parody you’ll see in Indiana this fall! Full review here

Talley's Folly

Cockpit Theatre

Talley’s Folly has not played in London in over 40 years. The Cockpit and Burning Coal Theatre Company have put in a strong effort here. A 40 year wait for 97 minutes of fine performance – right on time. Full review here

Fury By Name, Not By Nature

Interview: Fury By Name, Not By Nature
One of the four pillars of medical ethics is the respect of a person’s choice over their body, their life and their treatment; and choice is one of the big themes I wanted to explore with the play. However, when a person develops a pathology such as Alzheimer’s, sometimes their ability to make informed decision is called into question. Full the full article here
