Review: My Mother Said I Never Should

As the most widely performed play ever written by a woman, My Mother Said I Never Should, tells a poignant and moving intergenerational story, spanning seven decades to highlight the unconditional love, heartache and struggles of family, being a woman and the innocence of childhood. Using a minimalist all female cast and stage, My Mother

Review: The Band

Manchester, 1993 and five teenage girls are joined in friendship with a common interest – The Band! Having won a competition to see their favourite group, the girls set off for a night of fun, however the evening doesn’t turn out as they’d planned… Twenty-five years on and a reunion is on the cards, not

Review: A Christmas Carol (The Broadway Musical)

Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” is probably as popular now as it was in the 1800’s. A tale of hope, that no matter what our opinions and beliefs, change is possible…. even when you are as miserable as Ebenezer Scrooge. Although I knew and love Dickens’ classic tale, I must confess that I was not

Review: Sleeping Beauty – Felixstowe

Christmas and New Year is panto time!!! Those presented by the Dennis Lowe Theatre Company at the Felixstowe Spa are one of the most established. This year sees the 53rd panto for the company, so clearly they have a lot of experience in bringing the panto magic to life. This year’s production is Sleeping Beauty,

Bursting onto the stage with all the festive family fun you’d expect from panto land Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs is this year’s offering from the Ipswich Regent Theatre.

Review: Fenland Screamers

It’s madcap, full of action, an incredible amount of costume changes and thoroughly enjoyable… Yes, it’s another festive offering from Eastern Angles! This year writers Pat Whymark and Julian Harris take the audience to a boggy fen in Cambrigeshire with their production The Fenland Screamers, and Other Boggy Tales. A group of strangers arrive at

Review: Cinderella – New Wolsey Theatre

The New Wolsey’s Rock ‘n’ Roll panto is always a firm favourite in the festive calendar, and this year is no exception with Peter Rowe’s interpretation of the classic Cinderella bursting onto the stage!

Review: Numbers – CTC

I’ve long championed the CTC as one of the best musical am-dram groups in the area. They’ve turned their talents to big musicals such as Cats and Hairspray with performances to rival professional productions and it’s all done under the watchful eye of Principal of The CTC, Bridie Horne. The other thing to note is

Review: Trial by Laughter

A bookseller is accused of ‘Impious blasphemy and seditious libel’ and brought to trial, not once, not twice but three times! His defence? To be funny! This may sound like the work of fiction, however Trial by Laughter tells the true story of William Hone, a writer and publisher of comedic works, who, in 1817
