In a city awash with Pantos and feel-good festive shows, it is only natural that my macabre sensibilities were attracted to Anthony Neilson’s adaptation of “The Tell-Tale heart” at the Dorfman Theatre. Loosely based on the Poe short story, this reimagining sees a write...

Greek influence on theatre is beyond question, but when it comes to the modern musical it’s not something that is explored often. “Hadestown”, performing at the Olivier Theatre at the National, brings together Greek tradition, both in theatre and in mythology, with a b...
