by Jenny Antill - Apr 28, 2015

Daphne du Maurier's most famous novel Rebecca - written in 1938 - is spectacularly brought back to life by Kneehigh Theatre Company's current UK tour. "Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again" is the iconic line starting and ending the performance and from the moment it is first uttered, the audience are hooked. Du Maurier is a master storyteller and with all the twists and turns, it is a hugely engaging piece of theatre. It has been ten years since I last saw the play but it still feels as fresh and timeless as ever. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Theatre Memphis Spit-Polishes THE HEIRESSBWW Reviews: Theatre Memphis Spit-Polishes THE HEIRESS
by Joseph Baker - Oct 24, 2014

THE HEIRESS, Ruth and Augustus Goetz's 1947 adaptation of Henry James' WASHINGTON SQUARE and currently occupying the Lohrey Stage at Theatre Memphis, has had a long and steady run on stages throughout the world - and why not? Tightly corseted, polite to a fault, and observing proprieties, this intelligently written script captures the essence of the James source material without the convoluted, complex sentences that, alas, repel many readers. As tautly drawn as the material on one of the samplers for which its heroine is noted, when one of the characters punctuates the prevailing politeness with a barbed or telling line of dialogue, it's as if a sharp and jagged blade suddenly ripped through the fabric of the needlework itself. All this play needs for a successful run is a handsome set, period costumes - and four or five gifted players. (more...)
