[Review:] BURIED; GRACELAND; NUCLEAR WAR, Old Red Lion, London.

The three performances considered in this review, Nuclear War, Buried, and Graceland, are currently performing alongside one another as part of a so-called triptych at the Old Red Lion theatre. I will start with a summary of the night overall and then proceed to consider each play separately. I find it difficult to comprehend why... Continue Reading →

[Review:] THE DIRTY THIRTY: INTERNATIONAL WOMXN’S DAY, Rosemary Branch Theatre, London.

Degenerate Fox perform The Dirty Thirty, a compilation of thirty micro-plays, weekly at the Rosemary Branch Theatre.

As the audience enter, they are playfully accosted by an accordionist, the ushers and three babbling scientists, one (Will Stevens) obsessed with his complex machines (two bicycles...

[Review:] THE HIGH TABLE, Bush Theatre, London.

This is a very enjoyable performance, offering a rich and textured story which blends traditional African spiritualism with modern-day sociocultural concerns. Written by Temi Wilkey, The High Table follows the story of lesbian lovers Tara (Cherrelle Skeete) and Leah (Ibinabo Jack) who are soon to be wed in spite of cultural prejudices and of Tara’s...
