It’s a brave person who decides to take a well-known (and some would say cursed) Shakespeare play and put it in a modern context. But that is exactly what Proteus have done with their presentation of Macbeth set in the financial crisis of the 1980s.
The title of Tom Wright’s new play, ‘Undetectable’ indicates that it is yet another queer play about men living in the wake of the AIDS epidemic. It is of course exactly that, but it’s also a lot more and a lot more intimate than some of the bigger, similar plays seen in London recently.
Have you ever wondered what it is like to be addicted; to give in to your desires no matter where or when? Oli Forsyth’s quirky and interesting play, Such Filthy F*cks gives an insightful and compelling understanding of online porn addiction from the viewpoint of two central characters Jules (Luke Murphy) and Luka (Alice McCarthy).
I hate going to a party where everyone knows everyone and I don’t know anyone and I’m clinging to the wall like paint. And then everyone roars with laughter at some inside joke, and I’m there waiting, wanting to understand what it’s all about. So that was me at ‘The Twilight Zone’.
Mixing a sunny cocktail of raunchy jokes, cheesy tunes and Solana stars, Derren Litten brings his popular TV comedy to the stage. Benidorm Live lands at the New Wimbledon Theatre and has the audience in hysterics from the moment they hear that beloved theme tune at the very beginning.
If you are looking for a controversial piece of theatre that is guaranteed to generate a split in the audience; provide post performance debate, and make you question everything you think you know about gender and society then look no further than Penelope Skinner’s Fringe First Award winning play 'Angry Alan'.
However you sexually identify, there’s a palpable tension in Tom Ratcliffe’s Circa that resonates with so many of our common emotions.
Ratcliffe’s narrative escorts us through 30 years of Man’s life, reminding us of the harsh realities of the social pressures faced by gay men in the 21st Century. We are taken on an evolutionary journey of love, lust and loss, in every sense of the words.
On 7th July 2005, 47 minutes of carnage swept across London. ‘Outright Terror… Bold and Brilliant’, the title of Peter Neathey’s (Writer/Director) play is taken from the much-photographed tag on the side of the number 30 bus as it sat twisted and mangled in Tavistock Square on that day. A prophetic symbol of everything the attacks stood for, and a sign that the four murderous bombs were a milestone that changed everything in the Nation’s Capital city.
WOW, WOW, WOW… What a show! I could only express the importance of being in that audience last night at the Tara Theatre. The show is only showing there until the 16th of March so don’t miss your chance to catch the ‘Two Gents’ in their fabulous action.
Alluring. Enigmatic. Endearing. Rosie Fleeshman’s writing and performance of ‘Narcissist In the Mirror’ is a captivating one-woman show about acting, about love, about life – about how can we claim the identity we want to be?
Just what would you do if you had a stalker, or thought you had a stalker? Go to a safe place? Yes, it makes sense. That’s how Madeline (Caitlin McEwan) ends up at a lesbian speed dating night and meets Sullivan (Phoebe Naughton) who coincidentally ends up being an ex-detective.
