OPEN AIR THEATRE: A laptop on the beach and rucksacks in the wreckage indicate that we are in the 21st century rather than Golding’s cold war world.

What on Earth is Happening to Our Planet?
Robert Lepage superbly performs in this sequel to his 1985 breakthrough masterpiece The Dragons’ Trilogy, marking the return of that play’s central figure – artist Pierre Lamontagne – who resurfaces in Shanghai 20 years later.
FRINGE WORLD: A comedic thesis in pop dialectics covering the great pairings from Brandy and Monica to Freddie Mercury and What’s-her-face Operabitch.
CAMPBELL WORKS: Romany gypsies settled on Hackney Marshes at the end of the 19th century – and Irish Travellers occupied a site between Mare Street and London Fields following the 1968 Caravan Sites Act. Gypsies and travellers in Hackney again found themselves displaced once the development of the 2012 Olympics site got underway.
CHRIS POTTER: A musical prodigy who had his first professional jazz gig at the age of 13, he was also the youngest recipient ever of the prestigious Danish Jazzpar Prize, which is one of the most respected awards in the jazz world.
THE TRAIN DRIVER: There’s a shock, or a twist at the end of the play, which I won’t spoil by revealing here. Suffice to say, it sent chills down the spine and was not expected.

FEAR OF QUEER: It was an ensemble piece where every player performed well and, although this review has only mentioned two for simplicity, everyone involved gave a fantastic performance. It was clear that the play had been rehearsed for a long time.
BLASTED: has not been performed in London for nearly a decade but with Sean Holmes’ production at the Hammersmith Lyric it seems it has finally found a suitable home with a terrific cast to boot. Let’s just hope that this play continues to amass the recognition it rightly deserves.
'Crucible' is a dramatic collaboration between the Gloucester Cathedral and the Pangolin Gallery that pushes the boundaries for many traditional worshippers. The sight of Damien Hirst’s “St Bartholomew Exquisite Pain” standing naked, tortured and proud in the central aisle of the quire is disturbing and stunning.
