Faustaff @ The Cockpit Theatre Review

Faustaff is rather like a bad smell, uninviting and left somewhat of an unpleasant whiff. With a meagre ten audience members attending the performance, myself included, it doesn’t fill one with much hope. The space itself is set in the round and has a sort of warehouse/manufactured feel about it, not to forget the squeaky seats that give the impression of standing on a cat’s tail every time you attempted to move position. Feeling rather lonely on my own personal row I do not feel an ounce of excitement, or to be perfectly honest atmosphere in the room.

Hervé Goffings @ The Southbank Centre (Being A Man Festival 2015) Review

BAMBeing a Man Festival 2015 takes place at the Southbank Centre this weekend. The festival addresses the challenges and pressures of masculine identity in the 21st century and offers a platform for men to share experiences as well as free music, exhibitions, workshops, and discussion groups. Of course there are also a variety of shows and I went to see Hervé again, which I had reviewed almost five years ago when it was playing at the Rosemary Branch Theatre, shortly before it went on to the Edinburgh Fringe where it was nominated for a Fringe First Award.

Ben Hur @ The Tricycle Theatre Review

 

Friends, Romans, Countrymen! This winter season Ben Hur is well and truly here to stay!

Who ever thought so many roles could be taken on, adapted and made funny by a meagre four lead actors. The utterly charming John Hopkins leads audiences into the world of the play, making it known that he himself is the ‘one true star of the show’. Unlike the onscreen version of Ben Hur this production incorporates a great deal of comedy throughout and rarely has a dull moment in sight. The acting talent is top notch and the over theatricality of the whole thing is unquestionably attractive to watch.

The Prime of Ms David Hoyle @ The Chelsea Theatre (SACRED Festival) Review

“We are gathered here, communally, to be educated, to enter into pedagogy and this here is a two way street”. This is a show of introduction, education and instruction, where a political ideology, queer perspective and gender transcendence is encouraged. Within this production, Ms David Hoyle invites you to decide whether you will grow up to be a suburban housewife or the crème de la crème. It is an education, not worth missing…
