Post-show forum: Taking the All in a Row controversy & conversation offline

22 February 2019|

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.

Gently Down the Stream Q&A podcast and photos: Martin Sherman on passing on gay history and happiness

22 February 2019|

"It's so rare these days to see a play about optimism," the wonderful actor Malcolm Sinclair told me after Wednesday night's performance of Gently Down the Stream at the Park Theatre.

The Tempest Q&A video and photos: What happens when Prospero & Miranda becomes a mother-son relationship?

13 February 2019|

In my first of three post-show Q&As this year with Lazarus Theatre, I was at Greenwich Theatre for this pioneering ensemble company's exciting re-examination of Shakespeare's The Tempest.

Q&A video and photos: What would Bram Stoker think of Dracula staged at The London Library?

12 February 2019|

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.

My Dad’s Gap Year Q&A video and photos: Launching Tom Wright and Rikki Beadle-Blair’s unstoppable collaboration

8 February 2019|

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?

Counting Sheep Q&A video and photos: How do you stage a real-life revolution?

8 February 2019|

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. 

The Orchestra Q&A photos: Why don’t we see more revivals of French dramatist Jean Anouilh?

6 February 2019|

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.

The Ministry of Biscuits Q&A video and photos: Sharing biscuits and a love of G&S with Philip Reeve and co

1 February 2019|

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.

The Showstoppers Q&A video and photos: ‘Just give us something with heart’ say the musical improv masters

1 February 2019|

I've been following the insanely talented improv geniuses of The Showstoppers for most of their eleven years. How do they do it? I still can't really fathom it, but I was pleased to gain a few more insights - and a new well of admiration - after chairing a post-show Q&A with them this week.

‘I walk around naked a lot more’: Video and photos from all-female Nuns Q&A

21 January 2019|

I started this past weekend in a room full of wonderful, talented and inspiring women (and some great male allies) at London's Tristan Bates Theatre chairing a BOSSY all-female panel after a performance of Robert Luxford's Nuns.
