OK, OK, so I know it’s become a joke how many critics (film, mostly) produce a list of the best and the worst from their respective fields, and ultimately me producing a post like that is helpful to very few people. Firstly, because obviously all the shows I’m writing...

"Every aspect of society sets rules and expectations." That was one of the more insightful quotes from Intervention Theatre's "The World We Live In" while it was discussing class, and it got me thinking about the rules and expectations surrounding theatre. It is no sec...

It is not often that I see two shows back to back that are so similar in concept. Intervention Theatre's "The World We Live In" introduces us to a variety of annoying and troubled characters, each of whom gives us their own interpretation of the world as they see it, a...
