BWW Review: THE INTELLIGENT HOMOSEXUAL'S GUIDE..., Hampstead TheatreBWW Review: THE INTELLIGENT HOMOSEXUAL'S GUIDE..., Hampstead Theatre
by Marianka Swain - Oct 31, 2016

It's not just the title that's daunting in Tony Kushner's exhaustive three-and-a-half-hour epic, which tackles everything from socialist history, belief systems and family dysfunction to maternity strap-ons and meta jokes about cell phones at the theatre. It's such a barrage of polyphonic arguments and relentlessly destructive behaviour that one begins to develop a sneaking sympathy with the patriarch's desire for 'self-delivery' AKA suicide. But, under Michael Boyd's sure hand, a strong cast delivers the meat of this hefty piece - for those who can stick with it. (more...)

Bland's THE EASTER RISING to Play Jermyn Street TheatreBland's THE EASTER RISING to Play Jermyn Street Theatre
by BWW News Desk - Mar 21, 2016

Easter Monday - a group of Irish nationalists stage a rebellion against the ruling British government in Ireland in an attempt to establish an Irish Republic. Some 1,600 rebels seize prominent buildings in Dublin and clash with British troops on the streets of the capital. Within a week, the insurrection is suppressed and more than 2,000 people are dead or injured. The leaders of the rebellion are executed. A few years later an Irish Free State is established. Yet, over the following century the events of that week and their immediate aftermath have cast a long shadow over Ireland and continue to shape Anglo-Irish relations today. (more...)
