Image source: Almedia website Hello all, I'm back in the theatrical saddle again after a long break (reasons for this will be the subject of a separate post) and it feels great. As is often the way, after a long period of no theatre, I had two shows booked in on consecutive days (not to … Continue reading Previews, glorious previews!
Images courtesy of LAPA Last night I was invited to the press night of The Greater Game. Having already interviewed a lot of the cast, including the playwright, I felt nervous. What if I didn't like it? Well I needn't have worried, it was wonderful. In a way that only a play that reduces me … Continue reading The Greater Game review
