Q&A photos: Caught in the grey zone with Actually’s stars and director

By |12 August 2019|

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.

The Time Of Our Lies Q&A video and photos: Did historian Howard Zinn predict our era of Trump & #fakenews?

By |7 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?

By |4 August 2019|

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.

What is it about a great whodunnit thriller? What makes us keep turning the page? How does that inquisitive excitement translate onstage?

Q&A video and photos: Do you know How to Save the World through Chekhov?

By |1 August 2019|

One of the best means of ensuring a long career is an ability to create your own work. Patrick Bayele has honed this skill early on... and, after seeing what he's accomplished with his triple-threat professional debut, I feel confident we'll be hearing more about him for many years to come.

Q&A video and photos: What happens when audience and cast are shipwrecked together in The Tempest?

After chairing events for London transfers of Creation Theatre's The Pit and The Pendulum and Dracula, I was chuffed to be invited to see them on their 'home turf' in Oxford and host a post-show Q&A for their new gaming take on Shakespeare's The Tempest.

Q&A photos: Why was working on Peter Shaffer’s Equus so freeing for the cast?

By |24 July 2019|

How many different ways can one play be interpreted? The company of Equus were very keen not to impose their opinions but the audience at last night's post-show Q&A at Trafalgar Studios had plenty of their own. Which were right? All of them!

By |22 July 2019|

How did New Old Friends come to adapt Anthony Horowitz's 1986 children's novel The Falcon's Malteser into a hit family stage show? How has a new gender-equal, four-strong cast brought it to life for its London premiere?

Q&A video and photos: How did Nina Simone inspire Black Is the Color of My Voice?
