Theatre Review | TIMON OF ATHENS | Shakespeare's Globe
The recent scholarship of Gary Taylor and John Lavagnino and the long-awaited arrival of the Oxford Middleton have given added incentive to London’s Shakespeare’s Globe to stage this First Folio rarity. Timon of Athens, a play long considered ‘unfinished’ because of its uncomfortable situation in the Shakespeare canon, is now generally accepted to be a collaborative work between the established Shakespeare and the young up-and-coming Thomas Middleton. Kevin Quarmby [more]

Eight troubled individuals, eight samples of Britain’s young adult population and eight murky truths to be exposed in eight of possibly the most powerful and provocative orations you are likely to hear at this year’s Fringe. This is the work of first-time playwright Ella Hickson, whose searing writing challenges and exploits modern stereotypes in one stroke. Joanna Bedford [more]

Theatre Review | GIGI | Open Air Theatre, Regent's Park
Based on a novel by the French writer Colette, published in 1945, the first film version of Gigi, starring Danièle Delorme, hit the screens in 1948. Gigi then became a play adapted for the stage by Anita Loos and produced on Broadway in 1951 starring the ingénue at that time, Audrey Hepburn. In 1958, a feature film musical adaptation emerged with Leslie Caron in the title role and proved a major success, winning nine Academy Awards. Further stage adaptations followed first on Broadway in 1973 and in London’s West End in 1985. Julienne Bannister [more]

Edinburgh Theatre Review | FACE IN THE CROWD | Kudos @ Underbelly
More often than not we’ve all found ourselves on a busy bus or train, fantasizing about the kind of lives our fellow passengers might lead. It is only natural, living in a densely populated community, to feel the impulse to make contact with the hordes that surround us every day. Joanna Bedford [more]



Friday 15th August 2008
Theatre Review | PIAF | Donmar Warehouse
There is something fascinating about fatal crashes. Necks strain to catch a glimpse of gore, vicariously to experience the moment of loss and extreme pain, to shudder at how close we are to sudden, unexpected mortality. Whether a spiralling jet plane or a mangled high speed car, a Grand Prix collision or a parachute failing to open, all attract our undivided attention as our hearts race and our imaginations race even faster, anticipating the moment when the momentum of life meets the immovable wall of death. Kevin Quarmby [more]
