Ambitious but ineffectual: Lost Nation at the Tricycle Theatre

Lost Nation is a politically charged examination of the people of North-West London who are dependent on the benefits system. However, with no clear structure or aim to the proceedings, the piece lacks impact – and just appears as a tangle of differing opinions. At the Tricycle Theatre.

Horror-tragic-social-comment muddle: Bracken Moor at the Tricycle Theatre

Shared Experience are not at their best with this uncharacteristically traditional offering.  Bracken Moor cannot quite make up its mind what it wants to be – ghost story, exploration of bereavement or social commentary; so it ends up being less than the sum of its parts. At the Tricycle Theatre.

Searing: The Match Box at the Tricycle Theatre

Following its premiere at the Liverpool Everyman in 2012, Frank McGuinness' new play heads to London to play at the Tricycle Theatre – and it deserves its transfer. This searing production is a delight, although more subtle direction might have led to a more powerful production.

Lovingly crafted: Paper Dolls at the Tricycle Theatre

Paper Dolls at the Tricycle Theatre shows the complexities of living in Tel Aviv, but not for the reasons you might imagine. Philip Himberg’s new play tells the true story of 5 Filipino men who work as carers for the elderly by day and drag act "Paper Dolls" by night. Bizarrely brilliant - this should not to be missed.

The art of storytelling at its finest: The Arabian Nights at the Tricycle Theatre

While most theatres are currently opening their Christmas pantomimes, the Tricycle Theatre has taken a different approach with Mary Zimmerman’s The Arabian Nights.

Theatre for Everyone?

The dark nights have set in, our noses are cold from the turn of the weather, and it's time to plan our evenings indoors rather than sitting outside, sipping on a light cold beer. You could book a table at your favourite restaurant, or buy those tickets to check out the new James Bond film. Or, and here's a thought: you could go to the theatre! Stop sniggering at the back.

The African Roscius: Red Velvet at the Tricycle Theatre

Indhu Rubasingham's first season as Artistic Director of the Tricycle Theatre opens with new play Red Velvet, which casts a beady eye over the story of the first black actor to perform in Covent Garden, Ira Aldridge. While the show does get a little bogged down in its issues, it's still a bravura start to her tenure.

10 Theatres That Go the Extra Mile

Trying to narrow down the vast number of theatres in London to a notable list of ten is a daunting task, but there will always be a few standouts for me. I have not listed them in order of preference or grandeur, but instead attempted to select a diverse collection of venues/spaces that each have winning attributes.

A Slow Air

Tron Theatre presents a brilliant production, written and directed by David Harrower, of a contemporary, and rather kitchen sink-esque play. A Slow Air sees two very believable characters telling their individual stories in the form of mammoth monologues. Taking turns to speak, they never acknowledge the other’s presence, though we do discover that their plots are interwoven. At the Tricycle Theatre.

MUJU Double Bill

This double bill of comic plays about religion and the vagaries of modern life enjoys varying degrees of success. MUJU’s aim is to bring together Muslim and Jewish performers, channelling their creativity rather than their perceived differences, and they do a good job of poking fun at all the likely suspects- disapproving mothers and cross-cultural love affairs included. At the Tricycle Theatre.
