BWW Review: WHAT'S IN A NAME?, Richmond Theatre BWW Review: WHAT'S IN A NAME?, Richmond Theatre
by Aliya Al-Hassan - Nov 13, 2019

In a world where it is now normal to name your baby Bear, Apple and Denim, it is interesting for a play to explore if a person's name reflect who they really are. In Matthieu Delaporte and Alexandre de la Patellière's 2010 comedy Le Prénom, a group of friends is challenged when one couple's decision about what they will name their child causes controversy, arguments and even violence. Translated into English by Jeremy Sams (who also directs), What's in a Name? was a hit play, a film and is now revived for a second time in the UK. (more...)

BWW Review: RASHEEDA SPEAKING, Trafalgar Studios BWW Review: RASHEEDA SPEAKING, Trafalgar Studios
by Charlie Wilks - Apr 22, 2018

When Rasheeda Speaking first premiered in the US, it was met with critical divide on all ends. It's the second play I've seen this week that's theatrically dissected race, culture and class.

by Marianka Swain - Jun 22, 2017

American playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins asserts that the nightmarish workplace depicted in Gloria bears little resemblance to his time at the New Yorker, but that tension between truth and imagination adds a nicely meta layer to this spiky portrait of the ways in which we appropriate, fictionalise and commercially repackage reality.
