'2023 Was the Year The National Theatre Stood Up to the Plate' - Alexander Cohen's Best Theatre of 2023

The National Theatre somewhat mutedly celebrated its 60th anniversary this year. There was ostensibly little fanfare. No public flotillas, no audiences with royal patrons or forty-one gun salutes. Instead we have been on the receiving end of presents, and a plethora of them in the form of one knockout production after another.
Review: THE LIMIT, Royal Opera House

A play about the limits of language ought to easily translate into a ballet. Words naturally count for less and speech is no longer the primary means of communicating emotions. But does Sam Steiner’s indie darling Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons make the leap into dance?

Review: DANCING AT LUGHNASA, National Theatre

Josie Rourke's new production has much about it to admire, but has little to say on the changes in Ireland since the play's first incarnation on the South Bank in 1990

SEEKING DELPHI Premieres At VAULT Festival This Month

Seeking Delphi is a deeply compelling, painfully stark and shameless play about three homeless women seeking out stability, security and a way to change their fate.

First performed in 2015, Sam Steiner’s Lemons, Lemons, Lemons, Lemons, Lemons is an intriguing idea; a love story played out under a new law that restricts every person to 140 words a day. There is a lot of potential, but it remains an idea, not a fully-formed conclusion.

Review: AS YOU LIKE IT, @sohoplace

Presented in the round with the inclusion of closed-captioning at every performance and a few BSL-signing characters, it’s probably the most accessible, most gender-fluid show currently running in London.
