Here's the brutal truth about many of our rights: we only really have them if we have the wherewithal to fight for them when they're trampled on. That's certainly the case when it comes to employment rights.

The Choir of Man: Dedicated to the 2000 pubs closed during lockdown

Here's a sobering statistic: 2,000 pubs closed during lockdown. Lost forever. The scale of that loss really struck me when I heard performer and (brilliant) poet Ben Norris recite it during The Choir of Man at the Arts Theatre. And, in fact, it's likely an underestimate.

The big moral question at the heart of Indecent Proposal is: what are you willing to do for $1 million? More specifically: would you have sex for a stranger if they paid you $1 million?

Vaudevilles post-show video and photos: Seeing the surprisingly funny side of Anton Chekhov

By |2021-10-29T10:44:14+01:0028 October 2021|

Anton Chekhov is, of course, best known for his "big five" classic plays: Ivanov, The Seagull, Uncle Vanya, Three Sisters and The Cherry Orchard. None of which, though the author himself labelled them tragicomedies, are associated with hilarity.

The Tragedy of Dorian Gray post-show video and photos: What would Oscar Wilde have made of the Swinging Sixties?

By |2021-10-27T23:44:28+01:0024 October 2021|
