Rotterdam announces UK tour

Last seen in the UK back in June 2017, when it had a limited run at the Arts Theatre in London’s West End, Jon Brittain’s play Rotterdam is now set to embark on a nationwide tour; this announcement from Hartshorn-Hook Productions coincides with this year’s Transgender Awareness Week.

Challenge Week 2018: round-up

It was a busy old week, wasn’t it? I managed to stick to my plan of two blogs a day, and did what I could to start some conversations on social media. I also got as much out of my theatre-related clothing & accessories while I was at it! Linked to the day’s events, where […]

‘Tis the season… For a constant stream of new show announcements! Over recent weeks it definitely feels like we’re being bombarded with information about what’s coming up both in London and elsewhere in the country, as theatres announce their programming for winter and spring one after another. Add into this the hotly anticipated Broadway transfers […]

Pickle Jar

Maddie Rice (star of the recent tour of Fleabag) brings her debut play Pickle Jar to Soho Theatre, following on from an acclaimed engagement at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Kate Pesskin directs this 70-minute one woman show, which touches on victim-blaming, grief and being a responsible adult – it is currently in the middle […]
