Harman

Harman

A moving and powerful performance in four pieces by a group of talented dancers. The up and coming dance company, Ceyda Tanc, has influence of traditional Turkish folk dance that combines beautifully with a contemporary approach... 

Yes No Maybe

Yes No Maybe

Devised storytelling and physical theatre combine to create a series of rather unconvincing everyday encounters in Yes No Maybe. The six strong company create some interesting moments, but it’s not enough to pull together an incoherent piece of theatre which sorely lacks direction... 

The Common Land

The Common Land

The Common Land is a stark one-man show which recounts a coming of age tale set in The Fens, in language that is raw and brutish. Written and performed by the talented Joel Samuels, directed by Anthony Lau, this is a fast-paced and original story of loneliness, brutality and love rooted in what is dubbed ‘our shitty bit of England’... 

The House Project

The House Project

A house reverberating with the sounds of different generations; different times – joined together by the walls around them. What memories does a building hold? What has it seen? Is the house a home, or capital? These questions hover at every turn of our unique and delightfully voyeuristic journey around this house... 

366 Days of Kindness

366 Days of Kindness

366 Days of Kindness is the uplifting story of one woman’s journey through a leap year, doing something kind for a stranger every single day. Bernadette Russell begins her tale with the unkind things she has done... 

Lead Pencil and Friends

Lead Pencil and Friends

I left Lead Pencil and Friends still wiping tears of laughter from my cheeks. The night was made up of a series of sketches from Lead Pencil, zazU, BEAST and a bit of stand up from the wonderful Jack Rooke... 

Come Rhyme with Me

Come Rhyme with Me

Come Rhyme With Me provided a warm atmosphere, shared food and most importantly, some truly talented poets.The night was structured like a four-course meal. We had the charismatic Dean Atta introducing the night and sharing some of his own work... 

Rock and a Hard Place

Rock and a Hard Place

Meet Freddie Hammond (Simon de Cintra), a bank manager who wakes up to find the proverbial rock has become a reality - to be precise – a large boulder blocking his drive and preventing him from getting to a very important meeting... 

Vincent Goes Splat

Vincent Goes Splat

In the atmospheric nest that is ‘The Burrow’, a good crowd of us are introduced to our storyteller, friend and comic of the night, Wil Greenway. He weaves us two tales – his own and that of the eponymous Vincent - in a world of contradictions, unbelievable lies and the odd goose or two... 

The Sleeping Trees' Treelogy

The Sleeping Trees' Treelogy

Perfect comic timing, razor sharp writing and the most dynamic and talented performers I have seen in a long time. What’s not to like? Well the answer is nothing – my critical juices have been halted... 

Left or Right?

Left or Right?

Interactive musical theatre sounds like my idea of a bad dream, yet I was pleasantly surprised. Walking into the theatre the cast are busying themselves, ticking things off a list, writing notes, giving an audience member a coin to toss and playing with the contents of an ample dressing-up box... 

How to Disappear/Metamorphosis/Machinal

How to Disappear/Metamorphosis/Machinal

A bright and dynamic performance of Kafka’s Metamorphosis, this is an impressive piece. Told through movement and often a chorus of voices, the classic tale is brought alive by Berkoff’s adaptation for the stage... 

Poe

Poe

This is a spectacular butchering of Poe. As I walk in everything seems quite promising. Statue like figures are placed among the pews. Chiming, clicking and eerily loud breathing fills the air and the church setting promises a chilling performance... 

A Girl Called Owl

A Girl Called Owl

Quirky and engaging, this one-woman show tells the painful tale of coming of age. Olivia and Kay form a destructive friendship based on their common loss and position as outsiders. Told from the perspective of Olivia or Owl, the story sees them at the age of ten, before moving forward six years to confront two troubled teenagers... 

Forwards and Backwards

Forwards and Backwards

Elegant, bold and beautifully choreographed, Square Peg Theatre will take your breath away with Forwards and Backwards. The story slowly unfolds, breaking chronological time as its title would suggest... 

This Was Your Life

This Was Your Life

Should he go to heaven or face eternal damnation? The audience decide in this fresh and raucously funny musical. Quite Nice Theatre present This Was Your Life, a parody of many American style chat-shows... 

Diary of a Welshcake

Diary of a Welshcake

This is the holy trinity, well acted, well directed and well written. Book your tickets and wait with anticipation for Diary of A Welshcake, a delightfully unique one man show. How many performances instruct the audience to hurl skittles at the actor while someone at the front billows a welsh-flag to complete an interactive dream sequence? Don’t expect slapstick stand-up, but rather, believable storytelling, as if you’ve just met someone with a knack for impressions and been given an intimate account of their life... 

Brighton's Extraordinary Mystical Heritage Tour

Brighton's Extraordinary Mystical Heritage Tour

Brighton’s Extraordinary Mystical Heritage Tour only partially lived up to its name. Our tour guide Lee liked to talk about stone circles, mandalas and somewhat ironically, the strange people he had met in the city... 

Steven Berkoff's 'East'

Steven Berkoff's 'East'

Lyrically charged filth mingles with sex, violence and perfectly executed mime, By Moonlight Theatre return with their original twist on Steven Berkoff’s East. Shakespearean verse falls in with cockney rhyming slang, producing language which is both vibrant and surprisingly eloquent... 

ThreeD at Boxbird

ThreeD at Boxbird

Join the magical world of explorative illustration at Hove’s very own Boxbird – a name which conjures up the playful content of this little gallery. A diamond in the rough, tucked away on a quiet street just past Palmiera Sqaure... 

Like They Are
