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.
A lot has been said about All in a Row online (especially on Twitter around #puppetgate) - about the play itself, its depiction of autism and its use of a puppet in portraying the non-verbal autistic 11-year-old character. Last night we were able to take the conversation offline.
The bookworm in me adores everything about libraries and they don't get much more atmospheric, or historic, than The London Library, the world's oldest independent lending library - and now a highly unconventional theatrical venue for Creation Theatre Company's latest offering.
The Park Theatre was absolutely buzzing last night with two sell-out shows, including in Park 90, Tom Wright's debut play My Dad's Gap Year, which has nearly sold out the rest of its run too. What's the secret alchemy between Wright and his director Rikki Beadle-Blair?
It's only a matter of days until the UK is scheduled to depart the European Union. As anyone who follows me knows, Brexit is an outcome I've been fighting, marching and campaigning against since David Cameron first announced the date for the 2016 referendum.
One of the reasons I love chairing post-show Q&As so much is the chance I get to learn new things from incredibly talented and knowledgeable panellists. Last night's event for Jean Anouilh's play The Orchestra at Omnibus Theatre was a special treat as the expert on hand was also an old friend, Jeremey Sams.
Charming, delectable, delicious. And those are just the custard creams... It's not often I get offered biscuits at the post-show Q&As I chair, but at a show called The Ministry of Biscuits, it would have seemed remiss not to.
