Photos and podcast: Talking second chances and JM Barrie with Dear Brutus director and cast

6 December 2017|

Another fascinating rediscovery from Troupe Theatre. JM Barrie is best known, of course, for Peter Pan, but he also authored myriad novels and numerous other stage works, including Dear Brutus.

Q&A video and photos: Talking therapy & sexual misconduct at The Secondary Victim

22 November 2017|

It was a packed house - including many therapy professionals - for Matthew Campling's new play The Secondary Victim at the Park Theatre. Which made for some very knowledgeable comments and insights at the post-show Q&A.

Q&A video and photos: Talking faith vs family with The Busy World is Hushed cast

3 November 2017|

Can we love someone whose belief system we fundamentally disagree with? If we love someone, can we denounce what we believe just to please them? Family and faith compete in thoughtful three-hander The Busy World Is Hushed.

‘A landscape of mystery’: Fishskin Trousers Q&A photos and tweets

30 October 2017|

How much can a landscape shape a person's identity? How much can a landscape shape a play's plot? In answer to the latter question, in the case of Elizabeth Kuti's Fishskin Trousers, the answer is certainly quite a lot.

Podcast and photos: Ian McDiarmid and What Shadows cast on Enoch Powell and THAT speech

11 October 2017|

How do we talk to those that we hate? How do we speak across the anger that divides us? Those are the opening lines in Chris Hannan's provocative new play, What Shadows - and they were also amongst the questions raised at my post-show Q&A.

Photos and podcast: Remembering Stephen Clark with Julian Clary & co at Le Grand Mort

28 September 2017|

There was a moment I'll never forget from the Q&A I hosted after last night's performance of Stephen Clark's Le Grand Mort, starring Julian Clary at the West End's Trafalgar Studios.

Mrs Orwell Q&A podcast and photos: What might George Orwell have written after 1984?

14 September 2017|

Sales of George Orwell's 1984 surged by a staggering 9,500% after the election of Donald Trump to become Amazon's biggest seller. Orwell himself died, at the age of 46, in January 1950, just seven months after 1984 was published. What might he have written if he’d lived longer?

Q&A video and photos: Bringing Beckett’s Waiting for Godot home after 62 years

7 September 2017|

I had my own Godotesque moment to start last night's Waiting for Godot Q&A. The stage was bare. Where were the chairs? Was anyone bringing chairs? How long would we be waiting for chairs? Did such things as chairs exist?

Q&A podcast and photos: What does Marlowe’s Edward II tell us about identity and gay rights?

1 September 2017|

The plays may have been written 420-odd years apart, but I was really struck by how many parallels there were between the discussion I hosted last week, to the European premiere of Jordan Tannahill's Late Company, and the one I hosted last night, to Christopher Marlowe's 16th-century classic Edward II.
