Cut, a psychological thriller written and directed by Duncan Graham and winner of the 2015 Underbelly Adelaide Award and Adelaide Fringe Best Theatre Weekly Award, plunges the viewers into a sensory and thrilling experience.
The decision by the NYT to postpone the play has unleashed a firestorm of debate within the artistic community about censorship. But this is about more than the arts - it's about the kind of Britain that we want to be.
Hallelujah! Josie Rourke has finally staged an original play written by a woman at the Donmar Warehouse. Until now, all the original works staged during her tenure have been written by men<. But now we have Splendour, an early work from the very talented Abi Morgan (Suffragette, The Iron Lady) and it's a gem.
I am convinced that human ingenuity is unbounded, and that the transition from a fossil fuel-based global energy system to a world powered by clean and green technologies is both possible and affordable. As with previous technological revolutions, there is profit to be made, and the markets will drive developments.
What true lover of theatre can condemn the newspapers? How thrilling and marvellous that theatre can make headlines! A 400-year-old play and a piece of new writing both received attention out of proportion to their newsworthyness.
Three Days in the Country at the National Theatre is an exciting, absorbing version of Ivan Turgenev's A Month in the Country. It's smart, funny and overcomes its challenges to keep you entertained.
This breach of protocol matters because it can make it even harder for theatres to take chances; harder for new writers, new actors, new directors to come into the art form; to work outside of the mainstream. It makes it harder for established writers; actors; directors to try something new, do something new.
The star draw is Ben Whishaw and, my, he oozes charisma and a beguiling erotic enticement as an effeminate and dangerous Dinoysus, the self-proclaimed God of wine, madness and ecstasy.
After the show, I caught up with Preeya in her dressing room for a chat, and asked her how she thinks Indian themed musicals making more of their mark on the west end stage have faired recently?
I so wanted to be cynical about The Beaux Stratagem but it is just impossible. Its sense of fun is infectious and if you don't find yourself laughing and smiling, well, you're probably dead.
There is plenty to celebrate as countries across the world recognise same sex relationships. At the same time there is still much further to go before equality is achieved. In the UK while gay marriage has been legalised in England, Scotland and Wales, it has been repeatedly blocked in Northern Ireland.
Legal aid lawyers were never fat cats (despite what you may have heard), but we could turn just enough of a profit on work that was funded by legal aid to take a chance on cases like Lawrence, to see where they led.
The original production - an unqualified failure at the Edinburgh Fringe - had Halliwell in the title role, was directed by a 22-year-old Mike Leigh, and lasted nearly six hours (down from more than twice that in written material).
It really pains me to say that, despite the best efforts of the magnificent Rory Kinnear, The Trial at the Young Vic is not one to remember.
When William M. Hoffman's play 'As Is' was first performed in New York 30 years ago, it was hailed by critics as being the most powerful play of the year, and the first of it's kind.
Hats off to the The Motherf**ker with the Hat, a motherfu**king powerful play that's well worth catching during its London premiere run this month and next at the National Theatre.
