Swift but swinging! We had less than twenty minutes for last night's post-show Q&A for new musical Looking for Gatsby but - taking a leaf out of this incredible company's book - we made the most of it. It's amazing how much you can ground you can cover when you're up against the clock!
Federico Garcia Lorca spent three months in Cuba in 1930 - six years before he was assassinated (aged just 38) by Franco nationalists in his native Spain.

Does a soldier ever stop being a soldier? "No!" shouted several from the audience at last night's post-show discussion for Soldier On at The Other Palace.

When a show has as many twists and turns as Glenn Chandler's KIDS PLAY, there are special challenges in live-tweeting a post-show discussion. Last night, Chandler, his London stars David Mullen and Joseph Clarke, myself and the audience at Above the Stag did our best to avoid spoilers.
How much do you know about the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939)? Who fought on the side of the Republicans and who for the Nationalists? What happened to those who got caught in the middle, such as Paulino and Carmelo in Jose Sanchis Sinisterra's Ay, Carmela!?
Should country of birth define your identity or determine where you end up? Set in the near-future, Stand and Be Counted Theatre's highly political new play Where We Began imagines a world where a new universal law mandates that everyone must return to where they were born and stay there.
