This one is certainly more than elementary, dear Watson. Sir Charles Baskerville has died with a look of horror on his face and the footprints of a gigantic hound are found near his body. To find their ingenious killer, Holmes and Watson must not only brave the desolate moors before a family curse dooms its newest heir, but also navigate their way though the mayhem of confusion, silly accents and disguises.

The Atom Room; a story of our primal need to survive, our innate nature to love and desire to procreate amidst a futurist dilemma of interplanetary habitation. There's a number of firsts to be experienced at Circa Theatre's The Atom Room. First up it's a World Premiere, written by New Zealand Playwright Philip Braithwaite. It's also first to create a prologue in virtual reality, which certainly tugged at my heartstrings more than a little. To see Wellington, the city I know and love well, so different from my own reality is disconcerting and literally illuminated the just-as-disconcerting question 'Do we need to find another planet to inhabit in the future

Abstractedly alluring yet provocatively familiar, Morningstar transports us to a dimension where a mythological story confronts us with the very core of human nature. Award-winning playwright Albert Beltz has masterfully crafted a prose that is a lyrical symphony of superbly honey-rich language. He transports the essence of humanity; our conflict for order and freedom, our moral reasoning and free will and packs it into a rollicking great yarn.

I have reviewed them before and they are excellent.

George Bernard's Shaw's play is a sharp comedy that rides on a social commentary based on his beliefs that prostitution is not about moral failure but economic necessity. Awarding-winning director Eleanor Bishop ( Boys 2017) is both a writer and director creating feminist theatre. Bishop has deconstructed and re-framed Shaw's work adding an extra character in the form of Kitty Warren's sister Liz who provides a window from a of a sex worker's perspective.

The much-loved 1964 musical is a timely reminder that we are standing on the shoulders of those who came before us. Traveling back to Anatevka feels more familiar than expected. The music is wonderfully familiar and the all time popular 'Tradition', 'Matchmaker Matchmaker', 'If I were a Rich Man' and 'Sunrise, Sunset' to name but a few, will have you singing along. The orchestra is beautiful and pays homage to the much loved music. Musical Director Edwin Randall is indeed a supreme maestro.
