From the moment I sat down, I knew this was a quality production.
After my initial panic at being stuck in a room where the mean age of the audience was about four, I began to relax to the dulcet tones of the performing quartet.
Normally when someone is not laughing, and everyone else is, it is because they don’t get the joke.
What I have always loved about Gilbert and Sullivan musicals is the tongue-in-cheek, ‘taking the mick’ style that is elemental to their popularity.
There tends to be controversy around plays, and films, that resurrect the character of Hitler for the sake of performance.
There is something about small performance spaces - their cosiness, their character - but most of all I enjoy how up-close and personal the actors can be in such venues.
I have very mixed feelings about this multi-genre one-woman play.
I give this production four stars with some trepidation, as I am not entirely sure whether it is just my sense of Western artistic norms that is holding me back, or if in fact Qing…

Newton Faulkner, armed with a guitar and a flask of tea, saunters on stage, chatting to the audience as he sets up.
Tin Girl Story is an interesting production but I am unsure as to whether 29 Shoes Theatre Company chose the appropriate setting, or listing for their creation.
Very occasionally we might have an original idea, and when we do we like to tell others about it; however nothing can be compared to the smugness of Michael Pinchbeck and Ollie Smi…
This play is stunning in its simplicity and endeavour.
