Grand Day Out at NNF READ ON

Sunday, May 22nd 2022

Last Saturday, it felt like the gauntlet had been thrown down, as a string of shows offered up a truly varied festival experience for those with a strong constitution and keen knowledge of the city’s layout. It just went to show that a festival that has sometimes felt constricted by practical and financial considerations, can, on the day, deliver.

The Golden Cockerel

Saturday, May 21st 2022

Theatre Royal Norwich

"With James Conway's direction and Gerry Cornelius' conducting, 'The Golden Cockerel' is most definitely in safe hands"

Barry Humphries: The Man Behind the Mask

Monday, May 16th 2022

Theatre Royal Norwich

Les Patterson was an ungracious slob, and while Edna softened in her dotage, it’s worth remembering how she longed to turn Norm’s life support off. Both revealed a cruel streak that ran through Humphries work, perhaps born of the days when he was the bully, not the bullied

Nina Conti - The Dating Show

Sunday, May 15th 2022

Theatre Royal Norwich

"There is no one to match her, both with regard to her technical ability and her brilliant improvisational skills. Ironically, she is such a good ventriloquist it's all too easy to forget that everything funny happening on stage is coming out of her head and her tight lipped mouth."

Kenneth Williams: Cult Figure

Friday, May 13th 2022

Norwich Playhouse

I think Elmer would argue that the evening was presented as Williams would have constructed it, and as such was guarded where the man himself would have been guarded.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Wednesday, May 4th 2022

Theatre Royal Norwich

This was a great show, well written, well acting, and one which explored challenging themes. How to top that? The answer was in a tiny epilogue, which those hasty to catch the last bus home might have easily missed. To say more would be spoil a lovely surprise, but I will say it left a big, fat silly smile on my face.
