Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night at The Rose, Bankside

5th – 30th November, The Rose Theatre (London Bridge)

Our Rating:

What’s the best way to deal with Shakespeare in the twenty-first Century? It’s possibly one of the first questions that comes to a director’s mind when he considers how he might convey a Shakespearean classic to an audience who may, perhaps, have toiled with the idea of staying home to watch reality television (everyone seems to be at it these days) Continue reading “Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night at The Rose, Bankside”

1,000 Suns at Edinburgh Fringe

Our Rating:

1,000 Suns is a post-apocalyptic musical set in America, featuring a young talented ensemble cast. We meet the survivors of a nuclear war, who survive in a settlement known only as ‘The Crater’.  The residents are imprisoned as much as protected by the voice on the radio, the settlement’s ever so slightly malevolent sounding leader, Uncle Sam.
