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.

Dying City | Gaiety Theatre
This play is about sex used as a weapon whether active offensive or passive. It makes for great theatre because we still find it hard to face the issues that come with what must be the most complex emotional trigger in our battery of hormones.

Dracula
In Zen Zen Zo’s production of Dracula, the clash between sexuality and religion, between modernity and tradition, between change and uniformity, is explored and explodes into a deliciously innovative piece of performance.
