Panel on the RSC’s gender-flipped Taming of the Shrew: Kate & Petruchio in the age of #MeToo

29 April 2019|

I had a fabulous time last week in Stratford-upon-Avon seeing Justin Audibert’s new re-gendered production of Shakespeare’s early “battle of the sexes” comedy The Taming of the Shrew (1591), set in a parallel Elizabethan universe where women are in charge.

Q&A photos and video: Talking chemsex, HIV positivity & intimacy at Undetectable

21 March 2019|

Why is intimacy so hard? In the bedroom, when can drugs be a help and when a hindrance? How much should we reveal to a new partner? What new demons do today's young gay men carry with them into relationships?

26 February 2019|

It was a great big family affair for my post-show Q&A at Call Me Vicky at the Pleasance Theatre this weekend. The new one-act comedy-drama marks the playwriting debut for sisters Stacey and Nicola Bland, who also perform in the cast, and their mum, dad and nan were in proud attendance.
