Edgar Allan Poe wrote the short story The Pit & the Pendulum in 1842, inspired by the idea of a political prisoner tormented during the Spanish Inquisition.

Looking for Gatsby Q&A video and photos: How does F Scott Fitzgerald’s story look from Daisy’s perspective?

13 November 2018|

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!

Yerma Q&A video and photos: What toll does the titanic title role take on an actress?

11 November 2018|

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. He fell in love with the Caribbean island nation and it with him. And it's this association that inspired Jorge de Juan in his new adaptation of Lorca classic Yerma.

A Guide for the Homesick Q&A video and photos: How did Doctors Without Borders & homophobia inspire this new play?

22 October 2018|

The night after they faced the press, the team behind the European premiere production of A Guide for the Homesick faced a packed audience, most of whom stayed on to take part enthusiastically in our post-show discussion.

The Wider Earth Q&A video and photos: Puppetry evolution & Charles Darwin at the Natural History Museum

10 October 2018|

The Wider Earth is billed as one of the theatre events of the year - and, on this occasion, that's no exaggeration. What a privilege for me to play a small part in helping to launch this spectacular and historic production, which tells the story of a young Charles Darwin and is staged in a specially created, 357-seat venue at the Natural History Museum.

The Sweet Science of Bruising Q&A video and photos: Why’s now the right time for a play about Victorian female boxers?

This weekend, I got to enter the boxing ring at London's Southwark Playhouse to chair a post-show Q&A at Troupe Theatre's world premiere production of Joy Wilkinson's The Sweet Science of Bruising.

Kids Play Q&A video and photos: Talking taboos and teddy bears with Glenn Chandler

4 October 2018|

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.

Ay, Carmela! Q&A video and photos: Do only the dead remember the Spanish Civil War?

29 September 2018|

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!?

Where We Began Q&A video and photos: Should where we’re born define where we end up?

24 September 2018|

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.
