REVIEW: Pericles

The culture: ‘Pericles’ by William Shakespeare, Sam Wanamaker Playhouse

The cheap seats: £10 restricted view standing in the upper gallery. And when The Globe Box Office says ‘restricted view’ they really mean it – standing on the left side of the seating plan I saw about 45% of this production (but loved it anyway).  728 more words

10 ways to spend 100 minutes that are probably better than an Evening at the Talk House

The culture: ‘Evening at the Talk House’, National Theatre’s Dorfman Theatre

The cheap seats: £5 side of stage Entry Pass tickets. These were actually great seats but the play is impossibly bland, full of uninteresting characters who speak in self-centred riddles and disjointed monologues, and plays for one hundred bewildering minutes without an interval.   272 more words

A National Theatre Production
National Theatre’s Temporary Theatre
12th November 2015 – 2nd January 2016

A couple of years ago, there was a big to-do when the National Theatre’s 50th anniversary gala included only one female playwright, bringing attention to how often women writers have been overlooked throughout its history. 379 more words
