Interview

Eddie Small

Playwright Eddie Small talks about The Four Marys, his new play, commissioned for the centenary of Mary Slessor’s death

Julia

Not big on the frights, but stylishly shot with a soundtrack that accentuates an almost daydream-like aesthetic.

Body

An interesting premise for a murder story, sadly let down by poor execution.

Great Expectations

Jemima Levick-directed production gets a great many aspects right, which is why it’s all the more disappointing that a few don’t work.

Bikes vs Cars

A strong argument, let down by a reluctance to engage with that of the opposition.

Mother of all the Peoples

Mary Slessor helped many people and did many good things during her lifetime; this play is so poor you won’t care about any of it.

Titus Andronicus

Very cool, very hip and a little bit sexy; this ain’t your granddaddy’s Shakespeare of old.

Still Life

A visually well-crafted film, but, like its protagonist, a touch unremarkable.

The Ghost Train

Arnold Ridley’s slightly dated thriller works if you’re happy to be taken along for the ride

Blood Wedding

Strong performances in Graeae’s accessible version of Lorca’s work, but it doesn’t work on every level.
