Bombshells
These femme fatales probably don’t have a destructive effect on anyone but themselves; subject, as modern women are, to a relentless barrage of self-critical thoughts and self-effacing remarks.

Othello
Othello has never been a particular favourite of mine; it grates on the feminist in me – why does Othello believe everyone but his wife? Why is Desdemona so subservient?

Romeo and Juliet
Matthew O’Sullivan has directed a very solid production of Romeo & Juliet for the Globe Centre, using pared-back staging that relies on performance and using his comparatively small but enthusiastic cast to good effect.

Shining City
Shining City is a cross between a drawing room drama and a play by Pinter, complete with pregnant pauses. Replace the drawing room with a therapist’s consulting room, add a ghost and a touch of postmodernism, and you get the picture.
