Review: Christmas Eve

Review: Christmas Eve

I’ve just reviewed the new Daniel Kehlmann show at the Ustinov, Theatre Royal Bath, for Bristol 24/7. In short, this was a tough review – I wish with all my heart I could have written a happier one. Click the pic to have a read:

The Audience’s Glitter Knickers

The Audience’s Glitter Knickers

Wonderful opening night last night (2 March) – thanks hugely to all who came (feel free to come again, of course!). If you haven’t yet booked and want to come, I strongly recommend you click this “Book Now” link. But in the meantime, here’s a few choice quotes from last night’s fantastic audience:
 
“…the fantastic Glitter Knickers – it’s very funny, slightly bonkers and utterly sweary!”
“Loved it! Funny, astute, painful & crammed full of face-achingly good one-liners!”
“What a show! Bravo to everyone!”
“A MAZ ING”
“Fab show – we LOVED it!”
“I loved it. Trippy & brain-bendy.”
 
Thanks again, and I hope we’ll see you at the Rondo Theatre Thu/Fri or Sat!

Absurd journeys

Absurd journeys

Black Barn at LOST is now over. This dysfunctional circus family, scary siblings, pyromania and (understandable) reclusivity is – for now – a thing of the past. Theatre company tidy carnage did a great job with a sterling cast: Cameron Crighton, Helen Cuinn, Eilidh McCormick and Scott Reid, directed by Alice Butler with a superbly creepy set from Bethany Morris.

Here’s a glimmer or two from the audience’s eyes:

Very Dark. Seriously loved it.

Brilliantly bonkers!

tidy carnage pull one out the hat!

Thoroughly enjoyed the sinister surrealism of Gill Kirk’s Black Barn. Thought-provoking stuff. Loved it.”
