Interview | JOANNA McCALLUM | The Clean House
Joanna McCallum is having a grand old time touring in Sarah Ruhl's play, The Clean House, which reaches Richmond Theatre this week. Her character, Virginia, is the sister of Lane, played by Patricia Hodge, and is, she says, obsessive about cleaning "because she doesn't want to stop and think". It is a stance with which most of us are familiar if we have a penchant for procrastination and a need for displacement activities. The reason for Virginia's obsession is that she has an unfulfilled life and is too frightened to think about it. Sarah Vernon [more]

Interview | LIA WILLIAMS | The Lady from the Sea
Haunting fjord-blue eyes gaze into the distance from the poster of the latest Ibsen offering staged by the Arcola Theatre, London. The eyes belong to the award-winning actor Lia Williams. No stranger to the representation of intense introspection and emotional trauma, Williams is starring as arguably the most enigmatic of Ibsen's motherless young female protagonists – Ellida Wangel.

Theatre Review | MY LIFE WITH THE DOGS | NIE @ BAC
his international production tells the (true) story of a four-year-old boy who walked out of his home in a Moscow apartment block and for two years lived on the street with a pack of dogs. In BAC's tiny black-walled studio theatre a piano, a single chair, a battered radio, a pram piled with junk, a couple of electric guitars and an acoustic one and a row of empty bottles litter the performance space while pieces of clothing hang from the walls. Howard Loxton [more]

Feature | SUSAN GLASPELL: A Pioneering Playwright
Susan Glaspell was 72 when she died in 1948. In 1931, she had won the Pulitzer Prize for her play Alison's House, a decision and choice so disapproved of by the New York theatre critics it caused them to set up their own prize, the New York Drama Critics Circle award. Carole Woddis [more]

Thought for the Day | THE REAL THING
This Thought for the Day is, I'll be honest, a way of giving myself a pat on the back! On Thursday night I received the following email from Richard Medrington of Puppet State Theatre Company to say how thrilled they all are with Claire Ingrams' review of their show. Sarah Vernon [more]

Theatre Review | HENRY V | RSC @ The Roundhouse
Storming into the Roundhouse come the RSC History Boys in their boots and leather coats, swords held high. Acclaimed at Stratford as part of their History Cycle – performed by one company of actors and directed by RSC Artistic Director Michael Boyd – this dynamic Henry V has found the perfect home in North London's bold ex-industrial space. Claire Ingrams [more]

Theatre Review | SMALL CHANGE | Donmar Warehouse
There are earthy tones of a Wales I know in this play. The set, bare but for four chairs and a long shelf that go unnoticed, bathed in red, becomes nonetheless my grandmother's small terrace house; my best friend's street; my local park. It's the dialogue that does it. It evokes these scenes concretely, the words carrying everything on their backs. The attitude of the Welsh, trapped in their expressions, is here. The sense of "keeping going", of "living until I wear away", borne lightly, with a shrug, and "ah well, what can you do?" Rhys Williams [more]

Theatre Review | RICHARD II | RSC @ The Roundhouse
The RSC have brought their Shakespeare history cycle to London and to stage it have built a performance space within the Roundhouse. This space reproduces the atmosphere of their temporary Courtyard theatre at Stratford and, despite a huge thrust stage area, does seem to provide a sense of intimacy. Howard Loxton [more]

Theatre Review | WAR AND PEACE | Shared Experience @ Hampstead Theatre [tour]
This is a story of prejudice confounded. When the Shared Experience team, having proved their mettle in adapting nineteenth century classics like Jane Eyre, Mill on the Floss and, most relevantly, Anna Karenina, turned their attention to Tolstoy's revered but largely unread 1500-page epic of the late Napoleonic campaigns, it was natural to be sceptical. So much would have to be lost that surely the result could be only a meagre sketch, rather than the vivid, colourful canvas the narrative demands. Adam Sheldon [more]

Theatre Review | THE MERCHANT OF VENICE | RSC Courtyard Theatre
Tim Carroll's inaugural production for the RSC is both interesting and, at times, infuriating. Interesting because of the unusual (in these rightly sensitive post-Holocaust times) reminder of the comedic force of the play, and infuriating because so much of the dialogue and action is inaudible and obscured by conscious decisions of staging. Nevertheless, comedy rules in a play whose programme notes highlight the folk-tale heritage of much of the narrative. Kevin Quarmby [more]
