Lady M

In Nia Williams’ upcoming new musical, Lady Macbeth is a creepy life coach who takes advantage of the collective incapacity of lockdown to bring her own particular brand of… well… something… to the hunkered down masses.

Lady M certainly promises to deliver on all the disturbingly wild-eyed psychobabble one might expect

Somewhat inexplicably, Susanne Sheehy as Lady M sings, chats to the camera like a character set free from the 2020 panto-season, flourishes a child’s fairy wand with gay abandon - and in every way creates precisely the sort of Tibetan-cymbal clashing nightmare guru that is guaranteed to have me reaching for the gin rather than the therapist’s email.

This is a snippet of a future show from Three Chairs and a Hat, and if this trailer is anything to go by… then Lady M certainly promises to deliver on all the disturbingly wild-eyed psychobabble one might expect if one of Shakespeare’s most emotionally fragile characters chose to set herself up as a purveyor of paint-by-numbers-zen.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
