Are you worried about the state of politics and society in the UK today? That's the question I asked at the start of last night's post-show Q&A at London's Lion & Unicorn Theatre. The hands of all my panellists and nearly everyone sitting across from them in the audience shot up.

Arrows & Traps' 18th production in its five-year history is also its tenth at London's Brockley Jack Theatre, where it is now an associate company, and its third in a Gothic trilogy. And it's a corker.

Michael John LaChiusa was on his way back to the States by the time I chaired my post-show Q&A at the West End (and UK) premiere of his musical Queen Of The Mist - but I wonder if his ears were burning badly en route?

Can we ever really know what happened between two people behind closed doors? That's the question at the heart of Anna Zeigler's provocative new two-hander Actually, and one the company, audience and I grappled with after Friday's performance.

By |2020-01-25T21:24:12+00:007 August 2019|

A quick show of hands at last night's Q&A at the Park Theatre bore out my suspicion: most people, even left-leaning people, have not heard of Howard Zinn. Like those in the audience, before this show, I counted myself amongst them.

The View Upstairs video and photos: What happened in New Orleans on 24 June 1973? Why should we remember?

I had just enough time to wipe away my tears - I was sobbing - at the end of The View Upstairs before jumping up after the curtain call to announce this post-show Q&A at Soho Theatre.
