The Sugar-Coated Bullets of the Bourgeoisie, Arcola Theatre – Review

Pros: The set was absolutely mind-blowing. Cons: There was too much swearing in a script that otherwise flowed quite nicely. From the moment I entered the auditorium at the Arcola, I wished I could take a multi-sensorial picture of the mesmerising set into which I had been welcomed.

Twelfth Night, The French Protestant Church, Soho Square – Review

Pros: An unusual setting and superb performances that made great use of the venue’s features. Cons: Scena Mundi’s production took a while to hit its stride and was possibly twenty minutes too long.
