Thought for the Day | OUT OF THE BOX
Farnham resident Abigail McKern is a hands-on member of the Farnham Theatre Association – she has just been elected to its Board of Directors – and contacted me recently to say she had been very encouraged by the first major keynote speech given on 24 June, 2008, by Shadow Secretary of State for Culture, Media & Sport, Jeremy Hunt MP, after his twelve months in the job.

Theatre Review | THE EMPEROR'S NEW KILT | Wee Stories & NTS @ Richmond Theatre [end of tour]
Going to the theatre can be very disappointing; if I think something is going to be good and then it isn’t, I would really rather not have gone at all. So I approached The Emperor’s New Kilt with extreme trepidation. Wonderful Scots theatre company Wee Stories in association with The National Theatre of Scotland, presently on a high with universally brilliant reviews for Black Watch, the signs were just too good. I told my nine -year -old daughter we had seats and, quick as a flash, she asked “Is Iain in it?” The peerless Iain Johnstone, whom we saw in Wee Stories’ Treasure Island over two years ago and whom she had never forgotten.

Connecting Conversations is an ongoing series of events that brings together practitioners from the world of psychoanalysis with leading practitioners in the arts and literature, aiming to make connections among individuals, organisations, disciplines and ideas. The event held on 23 May 2008, chaired by Raj Persaud, was a meeting of Mary Morgan and Philip Stokoe, two practicing psychoanalysts, with the artistic directors of Frantic Assembly, Scott Graham and Steven Hoggett, to discuss the latter’s production of Stockholm. Frantic Assembly’s work strives to give equal emphasis to text, movement, music and design. Joanna Bacon [more]

Theatre Review | THE BUCCANEER | Ocean Theatre Company @ Finborough Theatre
Part of the Finborough Theatre’s Celebrating British Music Theatre series reviving forgotten British musicals, Sandy Wilson’s The Buccaneer was hugely enjoyed by a packed audience on Sunday. If you like frothy musical comedy from the Fifties, then you probably already love Sandy Wilson’s sprightly tunes and arch lyrics – ‘We sigh for him, And cry for him, And we would gladly die for him, That certain thing called… ’ (The Boyfriend 1954). In that case, you should grab this rare opportunity to see The Buccaneer (1953). Claire Ingrams [more]

Exhibition Review | LAURA KNIGHT AT THE THEATRE | The Lowry Galleries
Although these two exhibitions must be appreciated independently (and indeed I think, frankly, there would seem to be no advantage in being considered together), there is a little fun to be had in comparing and contrasting these two 20th century painters from such different backgrounds. Joanna Bacon [more]

Theatre Review | AFTERLIFE | NT Lyttelton Theatre
Michael Frayn’s new play Afterlife, directed by Michael Blakemore at the National, takes as its subject Austrian director, impresario, theatre builder and all-round dynamo Max Reinhardt, a theatrical Citizen Kane of his times (1873-1943). Claire Ingrams [more]

Interview | LIZA SADOVY | Moon Over Alabama/The Good Soul of Szechuan
Liza Sadovy has one of those faces of an indeterminate age. To see her in the current production of The Good Soul of Szechuan at The Young Vic, you would probably guess at late fifties, but in person she looks closer to forty. These days, Liza is rarely out of work, and is in the privileged – and well-earned - position of working with some of the best practitioners on the scene. Harriet Davis [more]

Theatre Review | 2,000 FEET AWAY | Bush Theatre [Run extended to 19 July 2008]
I was happily surprised to find that the programme for 2,000 Feet Away has been incorporated into a published script of the entire play. How invaluable this was for research into what was an experience not to be missed. Julienne Bannister [more]
