Ironically, there’s something very reliable about a big-theatre mystery. For all the suspense and suspicion, you can be sure there will be some stock characters, a grand setting, some drawling southern English accents and a healthy dose of escapism. In an age when watc...

Whoever said politics and class couldn’t be fun? In Standard:Elite by Hidden Track, privilege is turned into a game; there are standard seats and elite seats. You’re assigned randomly when you enter the theatre and can earn or lose your status depending on how you play...

After the sensation of The Play that Goes Wrong, one (i.e. me) would be forgiven for thinking that this farcical, meta 1982 play was an imitation. How mistaken that one would be. Michael Frayn’s very silly, very British play follows a theatre company from the dress reh...

To mark the ten-year anniversary of the eponymous Harold Pinter’s death, director Jamie Lloyd and his company have been performing their hugely ambitious “Pinter at the Pinter” season, which began last September. Directed primarily by Lloyd, the season consists of all...

I can't say I have encountered many theatre companies that stick to a strict formula. Yet, when I heard that A Slightly Isolated Dog were coming to Christchurch, adopting the same "very very famous, and very very French" personas as they are known for, and with a story...

Given the 2017-2018 season at the Court so far, featuring the intensity of performances such as "Venus in Fur" and "Titus Andronicus", it may be surprising to see a show as grounded as "The Biggest" concluding the theatrical year. Written by Jamie McCaskill and directe...

In a way, learning about the history of the vibrator is a worthy reason for this play to be produced. Set just as electricity was beginning to become commonplace in the homes of the elite, "In the Next Room" introduces us to Catherine Givings (Amy Straker). Her husband...
