Theatre Review | IN SPITTING DISTANCE | Rukab Project @ Barbican Pit
The political and historical irony accompanying the opening night of Taher Najib's In Spitting Distance will not have been lost on the Barbican's multi-cultural audience. Performed on the eve of the 60th anniversary of the founding of the State of Israel, this one-hour one-performer play graphically explores the life of a Palestinian in Ramallah who, for six months, 'escapes' to the relative ease of Paris.

Theatre Review | A DOLL'S HOUSE | Northern Stage @ Oxford Playhouse [tour]
My memory of reading A Doll's House by Ibsen is a bit sketchy, and not entirely favourable. The language I thought was heavy, even clunky at times, and although I was technically impressed I was rather underwhelmed by this famous tragedy. So, although I went enthusiastically to the Playhouse, I could hardly say I was optimistic. Yet Frank McGuinness's translation is sharp and snappy, and Erica Whyman's direction brings Ibsen's drama vividly to life and has cast the play in a new light for me. Jason Millar [more]

Theatre Review | TINDERBOX | Bush Theatre
Lucy Kirkwood's dystopian fantasy is at its best reminiscent of Martin McDonagh's The Lieutenant of Inishmore: dark, funny and pleasingly bloody-minded. Harriet Davis [more]

Theatre Review | THE CITY | Royal Court Jerwood Theatre Downstairs
I have no idea what nationality Martin Crimp is. Now, I know I could pop onto Wikipedia and check out this fact but for some reason it is more interesting not knowing. His plays give no definite indication. For a while in the 1990s I assumed he was North American but his recent output has a much more European sensibility about it, which has really confused my surmising. Jack Hughes [more]

Theatre Review | HOMELAND / LAURIE ANDERSON | Barbican Theatre
Since Laurie Anderson's recording career took off in 1981 with the ground breaking 'O Superman' she has never sold out to mainstream and is consistently innovative, imaginative and beguiling with her performance artistry. Evie Rackham [more]

Theatre Review | HARPER REGAN | NT Cottesloe
Harper Regan, the eponymous heroine of Simon Stephens' new play, needs to make a journey back to Stockport, where she grew up, to see her father before he dies. Her boss won't let her take the time off, but she goes anyway, though without telling her husband and daughter and without any luggage, simply going AWOL from her own life. Is she travelling or fleeing? Claire Ingrams [more]

Theatre Review | THE LADY FROM THE SEA | Silkensaw Productions @ Arcola Theatre
The versatile Arcola Theatre space is transformed into a craggy Norwegian cliffside, the sea lapping on the fjord-side shore some way in the distance. An artist's easel captures the watercolour realism of a scene only hinted at by strategically-placed boulders, rustic iron garden furniture and symbolic arbours constructed from so much flotsam. Kevin Quarmby [more]

Theatre Review | DE MONFORT | Orange Tree Theatre
The Orange Tree has often been praised, here and elsewhere, for doing on a small scale the exploratory work which might be expected of the National Theatre. The enthusiasm of its director, Sam Walters, for searching out the obscure and unperformed from our theatrical past has led to many worthwhile rediscoveries, most recently in his spirited Christmas production of Fanny Burney's 1802 farce, The Woman-Hater. Adam Sheldon [more]

Theatre Review | WITCHCRAFT | Finborough Theatre
Writers rediscovered after years of neglect often find themselves patronised by their discoverers, rather like indigenous populations are by the more benevolent kind of colonial explorers "oh, you had your own civilisation once, did you?". C J Sheridan [more]

In the intimate setting of the Citizens' Stalls studio, Jeremy Raison directs the first ever stage adaptation of Ron Butlin's novel The Sound of My Voice. Once Scotland's best kept literary secret, Butlin's novel was rescued from obscurity by Irvine Welsh, who nominated it as a lost classic in New York's Village Voice, prompting a re-print in 2002.
