    A Place That Belongs to Monsters

    4 stars – powerful fresco Famine, fire, war, and death. They are in the Bible, represented by the four Horsemen of Apocalipsis. They are, also, in a more literal form, in the suburbs of big cities. Four women of different ages track a geography of Bracknell on the last school day before summer holidays.

  • A Two Woman Hamlet
    A Two Woman Hamlet

    5 stars – literally marvellous I thought it wasn’t literal. I thought it must be some reduction of a kind, something more or less inspired by the Shakespearean tragedy. I didn’t think it possible that two people could do the whole of Hamlet. I was wrong.

    The Wild Unfeeling World

    5 stars –storytelling of a quest On stage, everything bears meaning. In the real world, it doesn’t. Humans have a tendency to extend the search for meaning to the hazard and randomness of events, be it to feel in control, or as a defence mechanism.

    Sugar

    4 stars – highly entertaining and insightful When you see a play twice, you become more critical. You are more aware of the technical aspects, and the plot is no longer a surprise, nor the wits are. This evening, Mabel Thomas’s Sugar was more entertaining than last year.

    God Damn Fancy Man

    4 stars – God damn honest James Nokise runs a brilliant and honest stand-up comedy.

    Illegally Funny

    4 stars – ocean-broad hilarity Is racism weirder in the US, in the UK, in Malta or in Romania, from the eyes of an Indian Californian (illegally) living in Great Britain? Sid Singh is a professional stand-up comedian, a human rights lawyer, and… an idiot (his word, not mine!).

  • Utter Mess!
    Utter Mess!

    5 stars – playful and insightful mix What do clowns do when the director is not there? It starts like this, with spontaneous freedom, and it escalates to a play that breaks most rules of performance genres. With lightness and bliss, it explores the possibilities of the stage, as well as those of human relations.
