Lungs – Old Vic Theatre

Lungs is a play for our time. It’s a thought provoking climate change drama with often poignant scenes. The opening act welcomes us in the middle of a freak out session between our characters, played Matt Smith and Claire Foy. It sets the tone for the remaining 80 minutes of hilarious, emotional, hectic and gut-punching minutes we will go through. I haven’t seen the Crown – nor will I ever – but I am a huge Doctor Who fan, and this has nothing to do with what I am about to say but Matt Smith and Claire Foy show us … Continue reading Lungs – Old Vic Theatre

These interpretations use formal experimentation to lay their plays bare and explore them from the inside out. Midsummer Night’s Dream is no different, RIFT utilise the cavernous atmosphere of the basement … Continue reading September Program

Radio & Film Festival, London, April 2019

The very best of British Television gathered for a weekend at the BFI Southbank in London. There were various panels, special screenings, Q&As and of course, many stars. I’ve attended ‘From the BFI Archive – David Bowie’ screening which was a collection of clips featuring David Bowie performing and in conversation. John Wilson is a British journalist who joined this screening and shared some of his personal stories about David Bowie. Check out this video of what John Wilson and his co-host (the person who put this montage together) had to say about Bowie and the process of collecting unique … Continue reading Radio & Film Festival, London, April 2019
