“Refrain from making anything brilliant, just avoid making anything god awful”. A truly accurate description of what it can feels like to create art. In Curtains, a murder is committed on opening night at a performance of Robin Hood set in the Wild West, and Lieutenant...

Is it possible to educate someone who isn’t posh? Though the bluntness of the central question of Educating Rita is a little out-dated, the class politics are still very real. Written by Willy Russell and directed by Max Roberts, this adaptation of the 1983 film keeps...

Often when we go to the theatre, we come to see dramatic battles, epic rivalries, and stories of grandeur that far exceed the petty drama and squabbles of our own lives. In God of Carnage though, it's exactly that kind of petty drama that is on offer. Married couples V...

A king losing his sanity and a conspiracy from his offspring to take over the throne, we’ve heard this before, haven’t we? The National’s new production of Alan Bennett’s “The Madness of King George III” was broadcast to cinemas the other night, and were it not set a c...
