Jane Bristow

Jane Bristow has been frantically writing reviews just before deadlines since 2012. Over the years she's enjoyed covering a variety of theatre productions - often with a historical bent and/or puppets - ranging from a Mad-Max-inspired Macbeth performed on stilts, to Margaret Thatcher re-imagined as a gay superstar. There's been some high-brow stuff too. Elsewhere she has written on-line for the British Council, dabbled with freelance copy-writing and now works in communications for a Scottish charity.
