    Eugenius Closing Night

    Eugenius, Closing Night | Essential Twenty

    I’m writing this far later than I had planned. I mean, I attended closing night over two weeks ago! But after a knockout run at The Other Palace, I had to discuss what I thought about the cult favourite Eugenius. This is one of the hottest new shows that the theatre community cannot stop talking about, and had an almost unheard of number of sold out shows during its 6 week run. Unfortunately I was busy for most of the run, but I made it to closing night after hearing weeks of raving from the theatre community, and I wanted to throw my thoughts into the ring.

    Pippin Review, Southwark Playhouse

    Pippin, Southwark Playhouse | Essential Twenty

    It’s been a long time since I went to the theatre and smiled as hard as I did when I was at Pippin over the weekend. Transferring from Hope Mill Theatre in Manchester (somewhere I’m hoping to take a trip to this spring to finally see Spring Awakening), Pippin is playing at the Southwark Playhouse for four weeks only. Well now you’ve only got a couple of weeks to get your bums there and I’m going to tell you exactly why you need to take the trip.

    Hedda Gabler, Milton Keynes Theatre

    Hedda Gabler UK Tour 2017/2018 | Essential Twenty

    I love a press night. Okay, so I’ve only been to two before (The Railway Children and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) because getting to London after work is a nightmare, but I love the glitz and glamour of an ATG members room. On Tuesday I was invited to the press night for Hedda Gabler at Milton Keynes theatre, and jumped at the chance to see this sold-out National Theatre production on tour during its final few weeks.

    An Interview with John Ward | Electra, The Bunker

    Electra | Essential Twenty

    My first theatre interview of 2018 is here! Despite not including it in my 2018 goals, I would really like to expand what I blog about when it comes to the theatre and interviewing the cast and creative teams behind productions is a wonderful way for me to do this. And a fantastic way for you to get to know more about the shows currently playing all over the country. Electra is playing in The Bunker from 27th February, and I’ve had the fabulous opportunity to chat with DumbWise Production’s artistic director about the show, as well as learning more about the theatre company itself.
