REVIEW: Trainspotting, King’s Head Theatre ✭✭✭✭

Trainspotting at the King's Head Theatre, London

With the audience sat and stood around three sides, the action regularly erupts off the stage, from projectile soiled sheets to splashes of murky toilet water. At 65 minutes, it moves along at a cracking and sometimes disorienting pace that leaves you staggering out of the theatre feeling like you’ve been assaulted (but in a good way).

REVIEW:Merit, The Drum – Plymouth ✭✭✭

Rebecca Lacey and Lizzy Watts in Merit at The Drum theatre in Plymouth

Merit has a timeless quality, examining themes relevant to any society going through economic upheaval. It also explores broader ideas such as our responsibilities towards others when money is short: Patricia questions Sofia’s decision to give to charity when people are losing their homes just as many people question whether countries in recession should continue to give aid to the developing world.
