Thought for the Day | NEVER SO GOOD | A Dissenting View
After reading Evie Rackham's notice of Never So Good on Rogues & Vagabonds, along with a lot of the press comment in the past fortnight, I'm wondering whether paying your own money to see a show sharpens the critical faculties. For me, Howard Davies' epic staging unarguably misses its mark, and very few of the superlatives lavished on it would have found their way into any review I'd written; although I would immediately concede that, in sheer production terms, the National has done a flawed play more than proud.

Obituary | RAYMOND SARGENT

Theatre Review | CONTAINS VIOLENCE | Lyric Hammersmith
Sometimes you find that a film is liked only for its content, without any regard to the style or manner in which the story is told. But that, after all, is the art of the cinema.' Thus Alfred Hitchcock, the British master of suspense, musing on the indefinable, the strange symbiotic relationship between style and content. Unfortunately, in the case of David Rosenberg's Contains Violence, you'd have to argue the other way round. Brilliant idea and manner of delivery; shame about the content. Carole Woddis [more]

Theatre Review | SHOOT/GET TREASURE/REPEAT | National Theatre & Other Venues
We've enjoyed some epic adventures in theatreland the past few decades but will anything match Mark Ravenhill's 'epic cycle of short plays'? Sixteen plays in different venues (including the last one on BBC Radio 3 on 20 April at 8pm). If last Saturday morning's quartet at the National Theatre is anything to go by, they amount to one of the most ambitious, unmissable theatrical events of the year. Carole Woddis [more]

Feature | ANTHONY MINGHELLA: THE BEST OF FRIENDS
I first met Anthony Minghella in the early 1980s when I played the lead in what I think was his first play it had certainly been performed some years before when he was at Hull University. I had the impression that he had always had some doubts about it and was anxious to give it another outing. So it was done as part of the rep season at the Belgrade, Coventry, in a beautiful production by John Adams, previously of Paines Plough and later to run Birmingham Repertory. Richard Syms [more]

Theatre Review | THE LAST DAYS OF JUDAS ISCARIOT | Almeida Theatre
It starts off with a punch. Amanda Boxer's Jewish mother, Henrietta, bewailing that no mother should have to bury her child; no mother should have to bury her son. She ends up on an even more powerful scream against God: "They say my son is in hell. Well, if he's in Hell, there is no God." Carole Woddis [more]

Theatre Review | WESTWARD HO! | Paper and String @ White Bear Theatre
Thomas Dekker and John Webster's comedy about a coterie of libidinous wives setting sail for bawdy Brentford, closely followed by their ineffectual citizen husbands, hasn't been seen for 400 years. So, what better place to resurrect this sheet-rumpling Jacobean romp than above a seedy South-of-the-River public house. Annabel Evans [more]

Theatre Review | MARIA FRIEDMAN: RE-ARRANGED | Menier Chocolate Factory
I have always had a bit of a soft spot for Maria Friedman as she was in the first play I ever saw as a proper, rent-book carrying Londoner. Her rendition of Gershwin's 'Swanee' at gunpoint in the National Theatre's 1989 production of Ghetto was one of those memorable moments of theatre that is forever burned on my brain. Jack Hughes [more]

Theatre Review | BLISS | Royal Court Jerwood Theatre Upstairs
I can honestly say I have never been welcomed into a theatre space before by a member of staff greeting me with a 'may I hand you your tabard to wear during the show'. I like a start like this, the mix of excitement and trepidation that perhaps there is going to be audience participation or something else untoward and tantalising, with everyone sitting on the uncomfy Jerwood Upstairs benches feeling equally foolish and dowdy in their Wal-Mart, institution-blue tabard with yellow smiley face on the back. Evie Rackham [more]
