REVIEW: A Girl In School Uniform (Walks into a Bar)
Disasters can only be called coincidences so many times, before it’s just called neglect. ‘A Girl In School Uniform (Walks into a Bar)’, is set in the nearby future, but it’s more of a prediction of where we’ll be if we keep calling avoidable situations coincidences.

REVIEW: Sorry to cut you off, Penny
Someone once told me that there are a few conversation starter topics to avoid if you wanted to have a pleasant conversation with someone. These are; religion, finances, health, relationship issues and politics. Sorry to cut you off, Penny is all about politics.

FEATURE: Valuing Adventurous Work
When I tell people that I’m a theatre maker, a lot of the responses I get reference popular musicals, ask if I have seen the current spectacular playing at the Capitol Theatre or if I can hardly wait for the latest appropriation of Shakespeare in film.
