For two hours and forty-five minutes the extraordinarily talented cast members of 'The Jungle' led me along the boarder between heartbreak and hope, and for that I am truly thankful. Both thought (and perhaps more importantly) action provoking this is a play which everyone should see. *****
Did the play blow me away or suddenly shine a beacon of light on some revolutionary original meaning? No, it did not. However, I am not sure it is meant to; in fact, I think that anyone waiting for that is perhaps also waiting for Godot. ***
This maybe a tiny stage, but it doesn't stop Abigail Hood's 'Dangling' making a big impact. ****
A play full to the brim of themes and words yet somehow lacking in power and meaning**
Boyegas decline into madness is incredible to watch a true masterclass in acting. Both painful, disturbing and utterly captivating I cannot commend him enough for it.****
An inspirational reminder that you don't always need big budgets, elaborate sets and full orchestral scores to create a five star show, some times all you need is a tiny black box, a beautifully written story and an exceptionally talented cast.*****
Junkyard is fun, rebellious, and unapologetically honest. An almost completely anti-musical musical and for that I love it. ****
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ An epic in all senses of the word, My Brilliant Friend is a compelling, often heartbreaking story which will draw you in from the moment you sit down.
'Vicious, vindictive and vitriolic, it's not an easy watch, but it is an exhilarating one'
For this 'Dream' you'll want to take everything you were taught, every other production you ever saw, every preconception you had, and throw it in the bin. Then walk into the theatre and prepare for a re-education.
