BWW Review: JANE EYRE, National Theatre At Home

After the riotous One Man Two Guvnors from the National Theatre At Home series, comes Sally Cookson's fervent adaptation of Jane Eyre. This intensely theatrical production is full of atmosphere and gothic chill. In these difficult times, it is three hours of escapism to a windy Yorkshire moor.

BWW Review: PETER PAN, Troubadour White City Theatre

The new Troubadour White City Theatre becomes Neverland as the timeless tale of Peter Pan flies into West London.


'Bring it down, bring it all down' is the anarchic cry from Macheath in Kneehigh's take on The Beggar's Opera. John Gray's original is given the full Kneehigh treatment- the original is not a constraint but a jumping off point. Perhaps the slide in the middle of Michael Vale's set is the physical manifestation of Kneehigh's ever playful nature.
