Favourite shows of 2018

As I ended up seeing more different shows than last year (and almost as many in total, thanks to some repeat visits), I decided enough was enough – it’s finally time to branch out from the weird top 12 idea. Beginning with a short list of around 40 (admittedly this doesn’t sound very short), I […]

Favourite male performances of 2018

There have been so many brilliant performances this year that I simply couldn’t narrow them down enough – and it also didn’t seem fair to restrict things even further, so I’ve split what would usually be one post into two (favourite female performances to follow).

I so wanted to review it, but if you’ve seen it then you’ll know what an undertaking that could be! Its groundbreaking, genre-bending nature […]

Challenge Week 2018

As it’s been well over a year since my last challenge week, I thought it was high time I came up with another.

2018 mid-year update
