Review: THE SEX PARTY, Menier Chocolate Factory

Terry Johnson’s new play,The Sex Party, has many ingredients for success; an intriguing idea, an excellent cast and a beautiful set, but is let down with a sledgehammer script and meandering message that goes nowhere. There’s a lot happening at once, but the entire play is as shallow as a puddle.

Four couples gather in a suburban London home for an evening of wine, cheese, and more intimate pleasures. Some are curious, some are more familiar, and one is rather unexpected.

BWW Review: THE DRESSER, Richmond Theatre

In the right hands, Ronald Harwood’s Olivier award-nominated tragicomedy The Dresser is poignant, hilarious and also heart-breaking. Terry Johnson’s new touring version captures the undercurrent of deep sorrow of the play in a this rather meta production about a touring theatre company.

BWW Review: THE DRESSER, Theatre Royal Bath

Theatre Royal Bath is the ideal venue for Olivier Award-winning Sir Ronald Harwood’s play about a touring rep company set in “a theatre in the English provinces”, according to the programme notes. You can’t get more English than Bath, with its honey-tinged Georgian terraces and nods to Jane Austen’s bonneted Regency times.

Review Roundup: LA CAGE AUX FOLLES (THE PLAY) at Park Theatre

BWW Review: THE SUNSET LIMITED, Boulevard Theatre

a?oeWhat is a true book?a?? Cormac McCarthy's early attempts to distinguish the nature of fiction in The Sunset Limited are, at the very least, ironic. A programme essay from Joe Penhall suggests the difficulty of the play form is the reason McCarthy has only ever had two performed. To be blunt, it shows.
