Secret Theatre London – Review

Based on the film by Quentin TarantinoDirected by Richard Crawford  ★★★ Pros: Edgy and exciting. Tarantino is a big name to live up to, and this production does him justice. Cons: The quiet cap guns used at the most dangerous and climactic moments were more humorous than murderous. The production has the potential to be more immersive than it is. Our Verdict: An exciting new concept for theatre which is acted brilliantly, but could do more with audience involvement. Courtesy ...

Location Location, Stour Space, Site-Specific – Review

Directed by Emilia Teglia ★★★ Pros: A fun, theatrical Halloween celebration. A cut above your average fancy dress party. Cons: Very brief performance, only 30mins!

Cons: Despite being told in allegorical form and presenting several perspectives, the message and tone of the production did feel overtly didactic at times. Verdict: Cheese offers a unique experience in more ways than one. A sharp dissection of ...

The Picture of Dorian Gray, Greenwich (Secret Location) – Review

by Oscar WildePresented by The Alchemic Order★★★ Pros: The combination of promenade theatre and “Dorian Gray’s private home” gives this piece something quite special. Cons: Conversations felt slow, the pauses between lines sometimes dragged. However this might have been because of last-minute-casting. Our Verdict: A different evening that will transport into the debauched upper echelons of Victorian society, albeit it is a little rough around the edges.
