With two thoroughly capable performers (both trained by some of the UK’s finest acting academies) giving it their all in this multi-role romp through the days of the Vikings to current political madness, Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain is energetic, edifying and occasionally a little close-to-the-bone. With enough flatulence-based comedy to make Chaucer proud, the young audience lapped up this very British, almost music-hall-style, two-hander in which Benedict Martin as Rex gives an … [Read more...]

Review of The Worst Witch at the Vaudeville Theatre
Emma Reeves’ musical adaption of Jill Murphy’s classic Worst Witch fiction series provides gratifying and uplifting entertainment for the whole family thanks to its multi-talented cast and its (mostly) spectacular staging. With the exception of two wobbly creative moments in the first act (which will likely be rectified), director Theresa Heskins’ production of The Worst Witch is a feel-good firecracker and a must-see for every spirited girl 7 to 17! It’s a delight to behold this cast and … [Read more...]
Feel the Love at Chickenshed Theatre | Review
Chickenshed Young Company presents Feel the Love. This was not the usual type of theatre where everyone sat in rows, one behind the other.

When I say everywhere I really do mean everywhere, the performance space was … [Read more...]
The Tiger Who Came To Tea at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre
Around fifty years ago my mother read a storybook as a child. Twenty years on she had a child of her own and read the same book to him. Fast forward another thirty years or so and that grown-up child sat in the theatre with his mum, watching that very story recreated on the stage. This year sadly saw the passing of Judith Kerr, the incredible lady behind the story and illustrations of The Tiger Who Came To Tea. Now entering its tenth year as a stage production, this timeless story has always … [Read more...]
The Tigon and the Liger at Chickenshed | Review
The Tigon and the Liger is an interesting production. It begins like a workshop, where toddlers and very young children walk around amongst the cast participating in various activities, in an extremely relaxed environment. This is a great way to get young children involved and engaged and interested in theatre. To be honest, I was a bit confused, as I wasn’t quite sure whether the workshop was going to be transformed into a play with a story. I wasn’t disappointed, this does turn … [Read more...]
