Things like this never happen to England. Or rather, they never happen for England. But we have just won the Cricket World Cup. Oh my!

Women of the world unite and...fight?

Review: Shakespeare's Globe, 5th March 2019

Royal Shakespeare Company, The Barbican, 29th December 2018

Review

One word springs to mind. Understated. Macbeth is one of Shakespeare’s shortest plays, but a bit like a haggis, it has a lot crammed in. This production took a mere 2 hours and 5 minutes, and the second h...
