REVIEW: Shackleton and His Stowaway, Park Theatre

Andy Dickinson’s play based on the true events of Shackleton’s 1914-1917 Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition is wonderfully presented but is lacking in purpose to be completely satisfying. A story of courage, survival and endurance, there is much to amaze in this recounting of Ernest Shackleton’s Imperial Trans-Atlantic Expedition. Vividly described through the poetic language used effectively… Read More

REVIEW: The Red Shoes, Sadler’s Wells

This new revival of Matthew Bourne’s romantic and dramatic take on the 1948 film is beautiful to watch unfold.
