A company of relatively inept actors attempt to stage a tour of poorly written play, Nothing On. What could possibly go wrong? In Act 1 it's midnight, the show opens in less than 24 hours, they've had less than two weeks' rehearsal and they still haven't finished their dress rehearsal. We are introduced to the company of fictional actors who are caricatures of what I think many would stereotype actors to be, my favourite being the gossip mongering Belinda played by Sarah Hadland who goes around … [Read more...]

The Comedy About A Bank Robbery
For the audience, there’s not a moment’s respite. We chortle and scream, we cackle and squirm, we hoot, we howl and we are ultimately convulsed. Go see it: you will laugh all the way to the bank.

An impressive backdrop of trees, woodland and leaves dominates the rear of the stage of the Cockpit Theatre for this production of Moth Hunting - Greg Spong’s set design is on a par with the sort of scenery at somewhere like Chichester Festival Theatre or even the National. Gill (Verity Richards) is out in the woods with her two grown-up daughters, Ann (Charlotte Baker) and Sue (Kathryn McGarr). I couldn’t quite work out why they were there, apart from to fulfil Ann’s desire to identify various … [Read more...]
The talk in the foyer before this evening’s performance is that one of the actors hurt his leg last night and had to finish the second half in a wheelchair. There is no sign of any injury this evening as the amazing cast of four all skip run and dance their way through the performance. Patrick Barlow's adaptation of John Buchan’s novel and Alfred Hitchcock’s film manages to tell the story of Richard Hannay’s unwilling involvement in an international spy ring as a lightning-paced, slapstick, … [Read more...]
Feargus Woods Dunlop’s adaptation of Anthony Horowitz’s best-selling 1986 YA novel, The Falcon’s Malteser, has some highly entertaining staged pieces but, at 80+ minutes long, is guilty of being overly faithful to the novel and not going far enough to establish a theatrical life of its own. Four or five mad-capped chase scenes or slow-motion ultra-noir pastiches elicit wonderful guffaws from the juvenile members of the audience but, sadly, Dunlop has failed to commit the necessary double … [Read more...]
Following their epic success with fantasy show Lord of The Game Of The Ring Of Thrones, Hivemind are back - and this time they’re taking on the high-octane world of Superheroes. The concept remains largely the same; the young cast courageously invite the happy, slightly tipsy audience to suggest a concept, and then, apparently undaunted by some rather unusual demands, they run with it. This, of course, means that each performance is completely original, and you could, if you wanted, go to see … [Read more...]
