Can I Help You? post-show video and photos: What’s the lasting legacy of the late Philip Osment?

8 March 2020|

Actor, director and prolific playwright Philip Osment passed away last May at the age of 66 after a long respiratory illness. His final play, Can I Help You?, is now receiving its London premiere at Omnibus Theatre care of Playing ON, the company he co-founded to give voice to marginalised communities.

Sinners post-show video and photos: Why did Brian Cox want to direct a play about stoning women?

1 March 2020|

I saw Brian Cox and his wife Nicole Ansari acting alongside one another in the premiere of Tom Stoppard's 2006 play Rock 'n' Roll. It was wonderful to talk to them about working together onstage again in a very different capacity of a very different play.

Some Mothers’ Do ‘Ave ‘Em video interview: Was Joe Pasquale made to play Frank Spencer?

29 February 2020|

I laughed my head off watching Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em, and afterwards, got onto the wonderfully kitsch 1970s set myself to interview stars Joe Pasquale and Sarah Earnshaw and writer-director Guy Unsworth.

Once The Musical post-show video and photos: Do you believe in destiny?

13 February 2020|

I first fell in love with Once after seeing the original 2007 independent Irish film. Then again when I the Tony Award-winning musical adaptation had its West End premiere in 2013. And now again on the musical's first major UK tour.

Chaplin post-show video and photos: What led to the birth of the Little Tramp?

8 February 2020|

Have you ever seen Charlie Chaplin's classic film The Great Dictator? Eighty years after it was released, it feels terrifyingly current. We get a glimpse of why with the inclusion of its final speech in Arrows & Traps' latest offering.

For the Sake of Argument post-show video and photos: How did Christopher Hitchens inspire this provocative new play?

31 January 2020|

Have you ever been powerfully persuaded by something you've read in a newspaper? Should journalists be held responsibility for the consequences of the articles they write?

Magic Goes Wrong post-show video and photos: How well do comedy, Mischief and magic mix?

26 January 2020|

As their episodes of The Goes Wrong Show continue to delight television audiences, I was delighted to continue my series of Mischief Theatre talks with a return to the Vaudeville Theatre to catch up with the company’s co-writers – Jonathan Sayer, Henry Lewis and Henry Shields – and their co-stars in the latest goes-wrong stage comedy.

COPS post-show video and photos: What is an “actor’s play” and why are there so few of them?

18 January 2020|

To me, COPS, set in 1950s Chicago, comes across as so authentically period that it feels like it must be a finely minted revival. But it’s not: it’s a new play. Even more surprising then that it’s written by an author I’d never heard of before.
