Love or hate Book of Mormon and its potentially offensive lyrics, script and themes, you have to admire the skill of its cast. And the childish, perhaps schoolboy-esque wit of Trey Parker and Matt Stone, its creators (who were nominated for outstanding achievement in music).

Oh-so-justly, Chimerica has scooped up a handful of Olivier Awards, including the highly coveted award for Best New Play. Produced in conjunction with Headlong and originally playing at the Almeida (before a successful transfer to the Harold Pinter Theatre), Lucy Kirkwood's intelligent, moving drama tells of the 'tank man' from the historic image of 1976 Tianenmen Square.

Beware - the following may cause theatre-lovers to become overly excited and ultimately lose a fair amount of time and money to their theatre habit. There's a lot to look forward to in 2014 - from revivals of shows that many know and love, to new and intriguing things that might turn out to be rubbish, but sound really interesting!

So it turns out that the remedy to the hideous tradition of pantomime is Jane Austen. While Austen's characteristically subtle repartee was replaced with camp, raucous humour, there was a sense of ironic wit throughout - and some universally understood 'in' jokes for any lit geek to revel in.

One of Shakespeare's lesser performed plays, Coriolanus has exploded into one of the most hyped-up events the Donmar Warehouse has seen this year. Director Josie Rourke's production is visceral and modern from the off, cleverly making what could be an abstract political plotline something to get angry and excited about.

Flipping the Bird's striking take on a classic is an eerie, surreal production, swinging effectively from snuffed-up and abstract to the palpably mundane. Jekyll and Hyde will run at the Southwark Playhouse until October 19 2013.

Permanently Bard have here created a raucous, delightfully silly and beautifully pitched production of one of Shakespeare's more ridiculous works. Twelfth Night tells of ship-wrecks, romance, cross-dressing, mistaken identities & absolutely wonderful hosiery - everything you could want of a classical comedy. And this version even ends with a jig.

Nick Payne's new play, The Same Deep Water As Me, is highly relevant, dealing with unpleasant contemporary realities - yet leaves you with an overwhelming sense of hilarity. Beautifully performed and directed throughout, this is a wonderful production. The Same Deep Water As Me will run at the Donmar Warehouse until September 28

Conor McPherson's scintillating new drama, The Night Alive, is by turns surprising, abhorrent and profound. An uncommonly tangible play, this is a must-see for anyone who wants to be up to date with contemporary theatre. The Night Alive runs at the Donmar Warehouse until 27 July 2013 and is unsuitable for young audiences.
