Theatre Review | UNDER THE BLUE SKY | Duke of York's Theatre
Six people in three relationships battle out their emotions in this three scene play. They are all teachers and although the education system is the flimsy premise underpinning the play, Under The Blue Sky is really about the intricate balance and thrust and wince of relationships. It is a study of people in all their platonic and loving and lustful glory. Evie Rackham [more]

Theatre Review | COLLABORATION / TAKING SIDES | Minerva Theatre, Chichester
Chichester are having the most amazing season. Prior to Jonathan Church’s arrival, the writing, it was said, was on the wall for the Sussex building that was the first home of our English National Theatre. Nobody seemed able to quite get the balance right between middlebrow and commercially popular. They were felt to be atrophying in their own chintz, their audiences along with them. Church, however, with Executive Director Alan Finch seems to have been able to cut through all that and audiences have risen to the challenge. Carole Woddis [more]

Theatre Review | GONE TOO FAR! | Royal Court Jerwood Theatre Downstairs
It is odd that going down in the world should actually represent going up in status. But in the case of this piece written by newcomer Bola Agbaje, it is undoubtedly true. By ‘down’, I mean downstairs at the Royal Court Jerwood Theatre (the play having premiered at Upstairs in February 2007) and having won an Olivier Award this year for Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre. This, the 27 year old’s first play was developed under the Royal Court’s new writers programme after she formed the Critical Mass Writers Group in January 2006. Julienne Bannister [more]

Theatre Review | THE PORTRAIT OF A LADY/A DOLL'S HOUSE/BORN IN THE GARDENS | Theatre Royal, Bath [tour]
This year’s Peter Hall summer residency in Bath has a distinctly trans-Atlantic feel to it. It’s not just the inclusion of Henry James’ The Portrait of a Lady; Peter Nichols’ Born in the Gardens, though set in Bristol and written in 1979, carries biliously barbed exchanges between a Labour MP and his sister, now living in LA, on each other’s respective societies. Carole Woddis [more]

Theatre Review | GOB SQUAD'S KITCHEN | Soho Theatre [tour]
It’s hard to think of a time when people emulated the past as much as we do today. London is awash with lindyhop, Studio 54 and Victoriana parties, so much so that it sometimes seems as if we’re a bit stuck for what our own cultural style should be. In this spirit, Gob Squad's Kitchen looks at one of the most glamorised bits of social history, Andy Warhol’s decadent Factory studio. Vid Simoniti [more]

Interview | LUKE EVANS | Piaf | Donmar Warehouse
The Jerwood Space in Union Street hosts the combined talents of Jamie Lloyd's latest directorial offering at the Donmar. Piaf, the play by Pam Gems which demonstrated the star quality of Jane Lapotaire in the 1970s, is being revived, this time starring the Critics' Award-winning actress, Elena Roger. Kevin Quarmby [more]

Feature | CHILDREN'S ARTS—CHILDREN'S LIVES
Why,” my friend asked, “would you come to a conference on children’s arts? You don’t teach children. You aren’t in the arts, for that matter.” This last remark, more accurate than I’d like, produced a bit of an ouch, but I let it go. Linda Wyman [more]

Theatre Review | EDWARD II | BAC
There is nothing better on a hot, steamy summer's evening than to watch a hot, steamy, sexy play. Christopher Marlowe might have come to a particularly sticky end the year before his thirtieth birthday, being ignominiously stabbed in 1593 in a bar brawl in downtown Deptford, but his legacy is some of the finest tragic drama of his age. Kevin Quarmby [more]

Monday 21st July 2008
Theatre Review | NOCTURNE | Almeida Theatre [tour]
A play that comes garlanded with commendation from its previous productions often elicits a wary response from the theatregoer: can it really be as good as they say? Peter McDonald, picking up the reins in this new version of the multi-talented Adam Rapp’s semi-autobiographical monologue of grief and mourning, has to live up to epithets like ‘daring’ and ‘terrifying’ that Nocturne has attracted in the past; so it is to his and Matt Wilde’s credit that the performance at the Almeida, soon to transfer to Edinburgh, is a cool affair that allows an assessment of Rapp’s writing without any emotional grandstanding. Adam Sheldon [more]

Theatre Review | STREET SCENE | Young Vic Theatre [tour]
The tenants are driven out of their flats on a residential estate in 1940s New York by an unrelenting heat wave, gossiping and living out their personal dramas on the communal balconies and fire escapes. Vid Simoniti [more]
