Theatre Review | TRIPTYCH | Southwark Playhouse
First seen in San Francisco in 2003, Triptych, about three women all in love with the same man, now gets its English premiere, directed by Sean Mathias. He and designer Paul Burgess place it in a long and elegant room with a chequered wooden floor and panelled ends that simultaneously suggest a stately home, a chequeboard for playing a game and a conscious stage set. Howard Loxton [more]

Theatre Review | BRIEFING | Mercurial Productions @ Camden People's Theatre
Cross-disciplinary theatre, combining storytelling through movement, text and visual media, is a difficult form to master. Achieving a coherent narrative often takes second place to producing striking stage pictures, and the method of presentation rather than the content becomes the main event. Adam Sheldon [more]

News | Event | COMEDY NIGHT IN AID OF KIDS COMPANY

News | Opening | A DOLL'S HOUSE | Northern Stage [tour]
Northern Stage brings Frank McGuinness' version of Ibsen's classic play A Doll's House to the stage, respectfully relocated to the 1950s. Deceit, forgery, best intentions, love and marriage are all questioned in a tense, emotional rollercoaster played out on a spectacular glass-house set. [more]

Theatre Review | THE MAN WHO PLANTED TREES | Puppet State @ Unicorn Theatre [tour] – Extra perf added Sat 26 April @ 4pm
This is a genuinely lovely piece of work. It comes garlanded with praise from the previous two Edinburgh Festivals and rightly so. Puppet State Theatre Company have adapted French writer Jean Giono's 1953 story of a farmer who planted a forest, acorn by acorn, transforming arid Provençal land into lush fertility, with deep respect. Manifestly a parable on the ease with which good may be done, as well as a plea to look after our world, it is also a wildly funny puppet show. I doubt whether there is a more enjoyable show on in London at the moment – for adults as well as children. Claire Ingrams [more]

Theatre Review | THE TRAGICAL HISTORY OF DR FAUSTUS | Third Party Productions @ Landor Theatre [tour]
For their first outing in London the touring Third Party Production company provide a short but entertaining and ingenious evening. Too short for me, I wanted more – or did I want something else? Norman Tozer [more]

Interview | BOLA AGBAJE | Gone Too Far
The Royal Court in 2006. While its arrival was a low-key affair – few of the major newspapers picked up on it – it was enough to win her a Laurence Olivier for Outstanding Achievement. At the time, Agbaje was only twenty-four. Two years on, and Agbaje is working on her second play (as yet untitled) commissioned by The Royal Court. Harriet Davis [more]

News | Opening | THEATRE ROYAL, BATH SUMMER SEASON
Blackbird (19th May – 24th May) is one of the most powerful dramas ever seen in the West End. Its story of two people who confront each other fifteen years after an illicit affair has been produced all over the world. David Harrower's gripping drama now tours for the first time in the UK staring Robert Daws and Dawn Steele. Hard-hitting and challenging, this is a play which provokes discussion and destroys preconceptions. Blackbird won the 2007 Olivier Award for Best New Play. [more]

Interview | SHAUN DINGWALL | The Man Who Had All the Luck
Shaun Dingwall is a captivating actor whose features lend themselves as easily to playing the menacing and unstable as the warm and appealing characters. Put this together with a prodigious talent and he's an actor always worth watching. He is also well worth engaging in conversation, as I recently had the pleasure of doing. He expresses himself with more clarity than I suspect he realises and has a healthy sense of humour about himself and the 'business'. Sarah Vernon [more]

Theatre Review | AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE | Arcola Theatre
Act 4 of the Arcola Theatre production of Ibsen's An Enemy of the People, a play brilliantly adapted and skilfully reinterpreted by Rebecca Lenkiewicz, includes a fleeting moment when the pompous brother of the play's anti-hero smiles a benign greeting at the audience. This smile emanates from the lips of the tall, top-hatted, and becaned Mayor of the local spa town, overseer of the sole tourist attraction, the local baths. Kevin Quarmby [more]

Theatre Review | TESTING THE ECHO | OjO @ Tricycle Theatre [tour]
David Edgar's docudrama about immigration in the UK has been compared to Alan Bennett's The History Boys. Discounting the fact that both plays employ a kind of 'collage' effect, and that both focus on specific goals (getting into Oxbridge / achieving UK citizenship), the comparison is rather generous. Testing The Echo has none of the emotional depth of Bennett's piece, nor is it half as witty or observant. Harriet Davis [more]

CORRECTION [22 April 2008]: Since this news was first published, we have been informed by Oberon that the following item about Rose Collis was not correct and we apologize for unwittingly misleading our readers. It was, we are told, a mistake made 'in good faith' by an Oberon employee who wrote, in error, to Ms Collis to say she was on the shortlist. [more]
