Aka Lockord Reinvents Shakespeare's FALSTAFF
by BWW News Desk - Mar 6, 2012

Fat, impudent and cowardly, Shakespeare's Falstaff character was a compelling tub of lard, a Homer Simpson centuries before his time. Falstaff has been revived many times in plays, films and operas, and he returns once more in "The Mystery Call Girls Riot: And Other Sad Events Relating to the Incarnation of Mystery Call" (ISBN 1470000784) by Aka Lockord. Although this lively retelling of Shakespeare's "The Merry Wives of Windsor," may question some 21st century notions, it is set in the American West during a period when ranches (to save fuel for the mechanized war effort) relied on horses for power. That practice continued for some years after World War II. (more...)

The Court Theatre Premieres Roy Smiles' PLUM, 9 - 30 August
by BWW News Desk - Jul 28, 2014

Filthy traitor or silly duffer? This is the question at the centre of The Court Theatre's new production Plum, written by Roy Smiles. Plum brings to the stage the most critical time in the life of popular 20th century writer, humourist and lyricist PG Wodehouse - or Plum as he was known to his friends. "Wodehouse was then and remains one of the few authors who can make me laugh out loud," says playwright Roy Smiles. "Reading his books in a 1970s Britain scarred with National Front skinheads, strikes, race riots and IRA bombs it was deeply comforting escapism." (more...)

Review - The Assembled Parties & Macbeth
by Michael Dale - Apr 29, 2013
