I'm not gone

Yes, I’ve been a bit quiet lately. Sorry!

It’s been a very busy month since my review of Twelfth Night in Stratford. I’ve moved house (and still haven’t got my internet up and running), and work has been very busy in the run up to the new term. In addition, the local theatres have been very quiet lately. Warwick Arts Centre’s new season only started this week and Stratford’s in rehearsals for Henry V. However, it’s now October and I’m Back.

Watch this space in the coming weeks for reviews of, in no particular order:

I Am Shakespeare (Mark Rylance)
Casanova (Told by an Idiot)
Fragments (Theatre des Bouffes du Nord)
Invisible Bonfires (Forkbeard Fantasy)
Water (Filter)
Shades of Brown (Rasa)
Henry V (RSC)
Noughts and Crosses (RSC)
Fantastic Mr Fox (RSC)
A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Dash Arts)
Lisa’s Sex Strike (Northern Broadsides)
Love’s Labour’s Lost (Shakespeare’s Globe)
Macbeth (Gielgud Theatre)
Brief Encounter (Kneehigh)
Much Ado About Nothing (National)
King Lear (RSC)
Scenes from a Marriage (Belgrade)
Othello (Donmar)

I think it’s going to be a good season….
