It’s a Thursday afternoon, and I’m sat comfortably in the stalls of Brighton Theatre Royal amongst an absolute army of five-year-olds. 

A Little Space

A Little Space

Watching A Little Space made me think of Marmite. 

A Life Twice Given

A Life Twice Given

A simple production, A Life Twice Given stretches itself to do justice to a very complicated idea, with only limited resources and space.

Beginning with an amusing introduction from the on-stage showrunner, Shit-faced Showtime: Oliver With A Twist sets out its premise.

Everyone I mentioned this show to asked the same question: 'What’s a theremin?' I'd try and explain: 'it’s an instrument, the one you play by just waving your hands about… 

Bear North

Bear North

Bear North is an intimate, folky concert led by a man wearing a giant furry grizzly mask on his head.
