Circus Oz
If it’s raw entertainment you seek, peppered with tongue in cheek humour and powered by rock and roll, then you’ll feel right at home under this big top.

The Messiah
This is a hilarious, side splittingly funny production. I didn’t leave the theatre with any new insights into life, nor dramatic moments to ponder on, but I came out refreshed, happy, and with a sore stomach from laughing.

macbeth
His Majesty’s Theatre was packed for the performance of one of Shakeapeare’s darkest tragedies, Macbeth, a psychological study in the devastating effect of a misplaced ambition.

Ivy Shambitt and The Sound Machine
It’s Desperate Housewives by way of Tim Burton and Lemony Snicket in this little community, where women and their daughters dress in matching pastels and popularity is a never-ending cause for anxiety.

A Slight Ache
This is a beautifully written piece, the language segueing marvellously from ferocity to lyricism with the occasional detour through middle-class twaddle thrown in for good measure.
