Satan, sex and seduction: The Destruction of Kreshev at the Etcetera Theatre

Sacred and Profane bring their adaptation of Isaac Bashevis Singer's story to Camden Fringe, and while the cast and crew are undoubtedly very talented, the sum of the parts does not equal the whole. More time working on the story and less time showcasing the skills of all concerned would help the production. At the Etcetera Theatre.

Postcard from Brighton: March Hare

I think it's safe to say I was relatively underprepared for March; it shot in to take the chill off February and caught me completely off guard.

Failure to Launch: Blast Off! at the Soho Theatre

Misshapen Theatre's sci-fi short play night Blast Off! comes highly recommended, but this particular outing may not have been representative, with far more of the short pieces missing the mark over making a really resounding impact.

History from below: QUDZ at The Yard Theatre

The Arabic word ‘Qudz’ refers to Jerusalem and the Promised Land. Here, Qudz is also taken to be a specific person who the protagonist searches for against the backdrop of the US invasion of Iraq. Although Qudz is well performed and an incredibly interesting work, unfortunately its power is diminished and the lessons it tries to teach go unfounded. At the Yard Theatre.
