Macbeth by Article19 – Review

When tackling a play as momentous and deeply explored as Shakespeare’s Macbeth, one must think hard about how to inventively approach what has been done so many times before. Director Harry Tennison seemed to realize this challenge, writing in the Director’s note for the production of the active attempt to make “a play about the …Read More


Hedonism by Footnotes Comedy Society – Review

Hedonism, written by student George Bandy, centres around one night at a house party. “When Hannah’s parents go away for the weekend, she knows it is finally her chance to throw her first party; unfortunately, she has no idea how to throw one, and so just invites everybody she knows, as well as the most …Read More

Over the years, Iceland’s Björk has released some of the most influential and essential electronic albums of all time. Her unique voice and use of strange electronics has made for one of the most compelling discographies in modern history.

Road by 3BUGS – Theatre Review

As soon as I stepped into the Amos Room for 3BUG’s production of Jim Cartwright’s ‘Road’, I knew I was in for a treat. The audience were fully immersed in the production from the word go, with a live band playing 80’s hits whilst the actors danced in character. We weren’t in the Guild, we …Read More

Twelfth Night at the RSC – Review

Twelfth Night by the Royal Shakespeare Company; 15th November 2017; Stratford-upon-Avon. RSC’s production of Shakespeare’s 17th century comedy serves to impress visually with its opulent scenography along with an experienced cast who engage their audience with ease.

Time Critical – Theatre Review

A show with a simple idea: it’s been 26 years since the start of Stan’s Café, so how do we celebrate? The answer is a chess battle between one performer, compressing the last 26 years of world history into 26 minutes vs. 26 minutes of Stan’s Cafe’s personal history. Stan’s Café is a theatre company …Read More


Loving Vincent – Film Review

In a world of Michael Bay, Transformers, the Marvel and DC juggernauts of explosions, disintegrating buildings, and scales of epic proportions, the word spectacle can seem tired or mundane. Something the viewership has come to expect, and something which one can rationalise and predict and quickly forget. ‘Loving Vincent’ is a singularly unique viewing experience, …Read More


Gig Review: Father John Misty
