PRIVATE LIVES (Hordern Ciani – Swanage Rep 2021)

What an incredibly enjoyable night I had at the theatre, attending the third and final offering in the season for Swanage Repertory Company. The Noel Coward classic Private Lives has stood the test of time since its first performance at the King’s Theatre, Edinburgh in 1930- entertaining audiences for nearly a century. This incarnation did […]

REVIEW: EDUCATING RITA (Hordern Ciani for Swanage Rep Season 2021)

With four successful seasons behind them, thwarted only by the dreaded pandemic which annihilated virtually all regional theatre last year, Hordern Ciani are back in full swing at the newly renovated and Covid secure Mowlem Theatre for their fifth season of repertory theatre. This week they present their take on the Willy Russell classic “Educating […]

REVIEW: WEST END PROMS (Greenwich Music Time Festival) ★★★

You could’nt beat the spectacular setting and atmosphere for the inaugural WEST END PROMS event, as a part of the annual Greenwich Music Time festival. Playing host to music industry greats over the years, from Tom Jones to the Jacksons and Alexander O’Neal – this year’s lineup included Cliff Richard and Paul Weller. With the […]

REVIEW: HEDGEHOG (Lion and Unicorn Theatre) ★★★★

Set in the late nineties in Barwell, a suburb of Leicester, this excellent (almost one woman) coming of age show written by Alexander Knott perfectly captures both the era and the feelings of teenage angst we can all recall only too well. It was a trip down memory lane for me, with highly relatable family […]

REVIEW: GARRY (White Bear Theatre) ★★★

Graham Watts, director and producer of this “lost” play by prolific playwright Sophie Treadwell (credited with writing more plays than Shakespeare, including her most famous work “Machinal”) cites in the programme his admirable ambition to produce plays through the ages, by eminent female writers whose works have been ignored specifically for their author’s gender as […]


I took my five year old niece to see Little Angel Theatre’s latest puppet recreation of a well loved children’s story book and we weren’t disappointed. The theatre itself was relatively easy to find, though off the beaten track, through a park behind Islington’s Upper Street – a fairly nice walk on a mostly summery […]


I am a big fan of this sort of dinner theatre entertainment; I enjoy supper being an “event” and have attended many such evenings, from an adaption of “Beauty and the Beast” complete with bacchanalian style revelling to one of the award winning Gingerline’s events where you feel like you are on a TV show […]
