Review: Quiz by James Graham

On a sunny Saturday in London, I went to see Quiz at the Noel Coward Theatre. Written by James Graham, this has to be the most mental plays I've seen. Yet it's thought-provoking and current in the light of social media as it is today. And while I enjoyed it, I also have to admit, it felt… Continue reading Review: Quiz by James Graham

Review: The Birthday Party by Harold Pinter

Last weekend, I saw 'The Birthday Party' by Harold Pinter. It had some of my favourite actors in it including Toby Jones, Stephen Mangan, Zoe Wanamaker, and, of course, Doctor Who's Pearl Mackie. Perhaps unsurprisingly, it was at the Harold Pinter theatre - however, I've been living in London for about eight years now and I've been coming… Continue reading Review: The Birthday Party by Harold Pinter

Review: Hamilton

This Saturday, I saw Hamilton at the Victoria Palace. I’ve been dying to see it since it opened on Broadway in 2015.

With my degree in the Classics, my amateur research into the nineteenth century and my general fascination… Continue reading The Cloak and Dagger Tour Review

Recently I was lucky enough to see Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead with Joshua McGuire and Daniel Radcliffe at the Old Vic. This is one of my all time favourite plays and has been for a long time. I'm a true Shakespeare nut, to the point where I literally flinch if a line is missed in Much… Continue reading Rosencrantz and Guildenstern… what happens when you give minor characters their own play

I’m going to start a blog. How hard can it be?

I've been creating stories for as long as I can remember. As a child, I would borrow my father's video camera and tell stories, often with props but always bossing around my younger sister (aka the lead actress and stagehand) and my impressive range of made up words like 'blustery-er'. It wasn't until I was eleven… Continue reading I’m going to start a blog. How hard can it be?
