This Week's Reviews

A Gig for Ghosts

Soho Theatre

The music is simply but skilfully presented. It never oversteps its boundary into feeling like we are watching a full-on-musical, but is carefully woven into the organic experience of the ‘gig’.

1797: The Mariner’s Revenge
Old Royal Naval College


Review: 1797: The Mariner’s Revenge, Old Royal Naval College
Producers at HistoryRiot describe their mission as giving audiences “a fresh sense of identity with the place in which they live and the historical sites they visit”, and I would certainly say their use of the venue brings new life into the historical site.

Demon Dentist
New Wimbledon Theatre


Some of the repetitive jokes did feel like we were pulling teeth (sorry again), but one can’t deny that there was fun to be had and the show brought plenty of joy to hundreds of children in Wimbledon tonight.

An Improbable Musical
Hackney Empire


An Improbable Musical Ruth Bratt and company
By the end of the evening the audience were applauding wildly, astonished by what they’d seen, and my face ached with laughter. And tomorrow’s show will be totally different, uniquely crafted for the next audience alone.

Trainspotting Live
Riverside Studios


This show is not going to be to everyone’s taste. It’s probably the most full on, offensive and challenging production you will ever attend. But it is magnificent and it is timely.

War Of The Worlds
Old Red Lion Theatre


Review: War Of The Worlds, Old Red Lion Theatre
It feels like an absolute labour of love, and one that sits nicely under the GrimFest banner it is currently playing as part of. It is, quite simply, a wonderfully creative and fun piece of theatre.

Bloomsbury Theatre


Writer, India Harrison–Peppe puts across many relevant issues from the start, giving this play huge potential. Her fiery writing and imaginative scenes are intriguing throughout.

The Shadow Whose Prey the Hunter Becomes
Battersea Arts Centre


Review: The Shadow Whose Prey the Hunter Becomes, Battersea Arts Centre
These characters are clearly not simply “activists with intellectual disabilities”. They have differing opinions; they’re vulnerable; they’re hugely funny. They are revealed as humans, whose idiosyncrasies resist a single definition.

The Road to Yecora
Hen and Chickens


Our three characters talk and share their dreams, and Desi Ivanova’s script infuses this with dark humour and some touching moments, particularly for Juan who gets a little more depth and a little more humanity than Murph and Juanito, and Viveros plays this particularly well.

The Poltergeist
Arcola Theatre


Review: The Poltergeist, Arcola Theatre
The audience has enough material to make their own minds up as to whether Sasha’s memory is accurate or if is he an unreliable narrator, casting a golden eye back on some bad times. Is he harsh – beyond harsh – in his treatment of his brother and sister-in-law?

Please, Feel Free to Share
Pleasance Theatre


Please, Feel Free to Share weaves together beautifully to bring its audience tantalizingly close to understanding an individual who refuses to be seen for who she truly is.
