Review of The Crumple Zone at The Pleasance Theatre
It’s around Christmas sometime in the 1990s and somewhere on Staten Island in New York, sharing a small, two-bedroom apartment are friends Alex and Terry. Buck has been staying over as he’s having an affair with Alex whilst Terry has a big crush on Buck. Alex however, is in a long-term relationship with Matt who’s an actor away on a long tour but who doesn’t know about Buck. If it sounds complicated, it is and it’s going to get even more complicated when a surprise visitor arrives to shake things up and shatter the status quo.

Three Sisters at the Union Theatre – Review
It began well enough, this production of Three Sisters, even if the purists would have been angered within the first minute, with what some productions term a ‘name day’ and others a ‘saint’s day’ rendered here as a ‘birthday’, in the Western European meaning of the term, as opposed to its Russian original. It is a minor point, and the spirit of the play, as Michael Frayn points out in the notes to his own previous translation, should “take precedence over exactitude”. I do wonder, though, how someone without any prior knowledge of Three Sisters would take to this new version by Tracy Letts. Suspending my disbelief at the door of the Union Theatre, I found myself having to rely on what I knew of the play already, which to me is rather disappointing.

The Kite Runner at Wyndham’s Theatre – Review
What’s surprising about this theatrical adaptation of The Kite Runner is that its world premiere was as long ago as March 2009 – it’s taken almost eight years to reach the West End, a long wait given the runaway success of the novel and the motion picture. This production likes to keep things simple, for the most part, in terms of staging. I loved how not every single thing was acted out. It was as if the audience was assumed to have intelligence, and a good deal of it, to know by way of the spoken dialogue, that a car journey is a car journey without actors miming opening doors, ‘getting in’ and closing the doors, one of them holding an imaginary steering wheel and both of them bouncing up and down to indicate movement. Not that there isn’t any miming: how would one feasibly go about credibly flying a kite in an indoor proscenium arch auditorium?

Death Takes A Holiday at Charing Cross Theatre – Review
It’s an absurd thought, really: the idea that Death Takes A Holiday, as if that were possible. There’s always a lingering feeling in this production of artificiality and this being all a bit hypothetical. It is, however, an intriguing idea to explore, especially when there are so many other characters besides Death (Chris Peluso) at various stages of their lives. The stage is not too cluttered (unlike the last musical production at the Charing Cross Theatre, Ragtime) and neither is the storyline.

Review of Becoming Shades at The Vault Festival
The Chivaree circus have created a show that is really something special; intricate, aesthetic and bold, there is a lot of distinct and quirky talent on display.

Created by Edward Gosling and Laurane Marchive, Becoming Shades reworks the classic myth of Persephone, travelling through the underworld. No better location could be found for such a journey as The Vaults, where an eerie quality is immediate. The show incorporates dance, aerial acrobatics, mime, and is set against a piercingly beautiful soundtrack, performed by Sam West and Becks Johnstone. With a few items designed beautifully, the arch is transformed into a rich experience of the shifting underworld landscape. Ushered in with a strange black object in a plastic packet in one hand, I did my best to tuck away extraneous items with the other. As I figured out the black object was a mask for over my face, I was ready to be transported…

Review of Fledgling Theatre Company’s They Built It. No One Came.
They Built It. No One Came, is a play about where earnestness becomes naivety, and integrity starts to look ridiculous. It follows Tobias (Christopher Neels) and Alexander (Patrick Holt), two idealists who form a peaceful commune named ‘Humbleton’ – a place they envisaged as a refuge from modern society – hoping to attract others like themselves. Eight years later, and they still remain the commune’s only members.

5-star The Glass Menagerie at the Duke of York’s Theatre
John Tiffany might well be taking over the West End by stealth. His Critic’s Circle-winning Harry Potter and The Cursed Child is still maintaining its extraordinarily successful run, currently booking until April 2018, and now his production of Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie, previously seen in the US and last year in Edinburgh, arrives at the Duke of York’s. And though Tiffany’s gift for direction may be taking fantastical flight over at the Palace Theatre, rest assured it is no less magical here. Kate O’Flynn’s Laura first appears like a spirit, passing right through the furniture as she is evoked by her brother, likewise Cherry Jones’ Amanda arrives out of thin air.
