Review: The Red Lion @ The National Theatre

Patrick Marber’s new play, The Red Lion, is a must watch for anyone who, like myself, cares about the future of the beautiful game. And anyone who cares about the theatre. 635 more words


Look for the candle in the alley

One of my favorite places for delicious cocktails and French small plates is a discreetly located speakeasy style bar called The Alley Light.

Dealer's Choice

This is the latest production in the Royal and Derngate’s Made in Northampton season.  The theatre’s blurb says ” Family, friendship and honour are tested in Patrick Marber’s brilliantly funny story of male camaraderie and obsession, set in the gritty world of amateur poker.” 471 more words


Review – Dealer’s Choice, Royal and Derngate, Northampton, 6th June 2014

Poker. Perhaps the ultimate experience in taking a game of complete chance and creating one of extreme skill. From my later teenager years into my twenties, I would host poker nights with my school friends in our public bar (you knew the Dowager Mrs Chrisparkle ran a pub, gentle reader?) John used to pretend to be Edward G Robinson (he’d have the hat to prove it); at the beginning of every game, as we were putting in our starter five pences (or whatever it was, this was a long time ago!) Craig would – without fail – say “you’ve got to be in it to win it”; if he had a good hand Gerry would always giggle uncontrollably; whenever the dealer chose five card stud we’d all say “man’s game”; 1,217 more words
