News | COMING SOON TO A STAGE NEAR YOU | London
In the cotton fields of the Punjab a small farmer waits anxiously for the harvest, pinning his hopes for prosperity on GM seeds and Western pesticides to ensure an abundant crop. When disaster occurs and the crops begin to fail, he falls deeper into debt to the local money-lender. Full of frustrated ambition his son turns to drink and dreams of escape while his dutiful daughter finds herself torn between staying in poverty on the land she loves or following the man she adores to a better life in the West….

Theatre Review | THE FALL AND RISE OF LENNY SMALLMAN | cloud ten productions @ Arts Theatre
Unless postponed by success or utter failure, there is a time in your life, usually around the late forties, when you fear you've peaked. If you had ambitions you've probably missed them and what you are now is the best it will be. Do you plough on, settling for second best? Do you change direction, setting different goals? Or can you rise and achieve? These questions are at the heart of this new production at the Arts Theatre. Norman Tozer [more]

Theatre Review | BLACKBIRD | Oxford Playhouse [tour]
In 1998, almost ten years ago exactly, Gita Sereny published a book titled Cries Unheard: The Story of Mary Bell. Sereny's recurrent theme is the nature of evil, most often examined through the rigorous investigative journalism on the Nazi period, but also on the subject of Bell. Her unique interviews grant insight into the troubled case of a child branded 'evil', who as an eleven-year-old girl killed two toddlers and was convicted of manslaughter on diminished responsibility. I mention Sereny because she is relevant. Jason Millar [more]

Theatre Review | THE CLEAN HOUSE | Richmond Theatre [tour]
Despite being written in 2004, Sarah Ruhl's multi-award winning comedy feels like a relic of the 1970s. It uses the idea of women's attitudes to cleanliness as a means of examining both their self esteem and their approaches to relationships. Harriet Davis [more]

Theatre Review | PUNCH AND JUDY | ENO @ Young Vic Theatre
Harrison Birtwistle is not the easiest of composers for an audience to get along with. His music is complex. His choice of subject matter can be obscure and in his operas the theatrical approach to telling a story can be startling. So if you like a challenge and do not wish to sit passively in your orchestra stalls seat he may well be the composer for you. Jack Hughes [more]
