Review: KIDNAPPED, Theatre Royal, Glasgow

This riotous re-telling of Robert Louis Stevenson’s adventure novella is jam-packed with 20th century pop music and 18th century romance. Performed by a dynamic ensemble of actor-musicians, Kidnapped is a colourful coming-of-age story - shot-through with Stevenson’s trademark blend of poetry, humour and heart.

Review: PRIDE & PREJUDICE* (*SORT OF), Richmond Theatre

Pride & Prejudice* (*sort of) has the potential to be an unstructured mess, but has the joyous, slightly chaotic nature of an irreverent fringe production, with the wit and slick satire of a carefully crafted piece more than worthy of the West End.

Jane Austen is a very funny woman. It seems that she is often thought of in terms of stuffy period dramas, empire line dresses and Colin Firth. But if you ever choose to go about reading one of her books (an activity I can only recommend) then you’ll see that her work is brimming with wit, sexiness and a deep critique of what society considers to be important.

Review: PRIDE AND PREJUDICE (SORT OF), King's Theatre

Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) is a unique and audacious retelling of Jane Austen’s most iconic love story. Men, money and microphones will be fought over in this irreverent but affectionate adaptation, where the stakes couldn’t be higher when it comes to romance.
