Arty Graphic Intense Funny Tragic Relentless and very very good.

The Lady in The Van | Melbourne Theatre Company

Bennett has always acknowledged that his garden guest Miss Shepherd, provided him with a wealth of material, but it is the analysis of his own part in this absurd situation that makes the story so compelling.

My Night With Reg | new theatre

My Night With Reg by Kevin Elyot is somewhat of a relic, a play about the plague years of the AIDS epidemic structured like a drawing room comedy of an even earlier era.

It’s easy to imagine self-confessed grammar nerd Fitzhardinge, as the odd one out in the popular girls group at school.
