Safe House at the Camden Fringe
Published by: Natália Nagy on Thursday 20th August 2009 12:08pm

You never know what you come across the Camden Fringe: I had stumbled upon the story of an alcoholic. The subject is controversial and at 3PM it rips you out of sunny London and throws you in the land of broken promises and empty bottles.

Angels with Manky Faces at Library Theatre, Manchester
Published by: Caroline May on Wednesday 19th August 2009 06:08pm

Think of Manchester, and think of a great industrial city famed for its world-class football, cutting-edge music scene and all manner of scientific innovations; however you might equally recall its post-industrial reputation for the kind of poverty and social deprivation that invariably foster youth crime and organised violence.

The Picture of Dorian Gray (clubWEST)
Published by: Carolin Kopplin on Tuesday 18th August 2009 07:08pm

The Picture of Dorian Gray was first published in Lippincott's Monthly Magazine in 1890. There was a mild scandal because of the homoerotic tone of the story. Wilde later revised this edition, making several alterations, and adding new chapters. This version performed by Keith Drinkel omits the additions and concentrates on the relationship between the three men - Dorian Gray, the artist Basil Hallward and Lord Henry Wooton, the society wit.

SHOW: PALACE OF THE END (Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester)
Published by: Carolin Kopplin on Tuesday 18th August 2009 07:08pm

The production Palace of the End by renowned playwright Judith Thompson has been nominated for the Amnesty International Award and rightfully so. This play is about the Iraq War and its effect on three individuals - two of them well known to us. However, it is not a docu-drama.

The Common Good Review
Published by: Catherine Balavage on Tuesday 18th August 2009 02:08pm

The Common Good. At The Roundhouse Theatre. Part of The Camden Fringe.

Going to see a play about Chernobyl may not be first on most people's lists. However, theatre is about storytelling and as stories go, Chernobyl is tragic and compelling. It is one of the most important stories that must be told to every generation. It is also sometimes hard to believe that, yes, it really did happen.

THE GIRLFRIEND EXPERIENCE AT THE YOUNG VIC

Although the run is over and I in fact, saw the show on its closing night, I had to write a brief overview to let people know that if (surely more correct would be when) the show appears again, to GO AND SEE IT IMMEDIATELY.
