Voyeurism is a difficult topic to challenge through theatre; you can't criticise people taking enjoyment by looking at sexual images, without giving them a sexual image to look at. Playwright Alice Birch is all too aware of the irony, and uses it to her advantage in We...

With city-centre space being the rare commodity it is during August, it’s unsurprising that most performers find themselves in black boxes made of unused office space and classrooms. In High Trees, however, it makes perfect sense. Two characters (played by Estella Smit...

While I may not be a London critic, it’s difficult to be a theatre enthusiast with a twitter account without having heard of “Bitter Wheat”. Months before the David Mamet play made its world premiere at the Garrick theatre, the black comedy starring John Malkovich in a...
