We Are the Lions: Mr Manager Walker Theatre Tuesday 31st October Spellbinding and mesmerising are just two of the superlatives in the forefront of one’s mind as one offers up this critique of, Townsend Theatre Productions’ We are The Lions Mr Manager. What could such a title mean? Well, It is lifted from a quote made by Jayaben Desai. Jayaben was the worker that George Ward of Grunwick Photo...

Nicholas Collett Productions Your Bard The Walker Theatre 22nd September 2017   Making a welcome return back to Theatre Severn’s Walker Theatre this evening was the highly uncluttered and totally watchable Nicholas Collett. Your Bard, is as you may well have worked out, a play about the life of Shakespeare and how he came to write his plays…or did he? The opening paragraph of this review declared...

The Amazing Bubbleman The Walker Theatre Sunday  9th April When someone refers to themselves as amazing it is either in ironic context and they aren’t remotely amazing at anything,  or they literally are amazing. The latter refers to The Amazing Bubble man. There is no irony in this nomenclature he is amazing. From out of Berkley, California the Amazing Bubble Man (ABM) presents a show like you...

The Christians Walker Theatre Friday 7th April   There is always delight in watching a band that has been around since the mid-eighties, rocking as any band of today should. The Christian’s who were  back for their second time at Walker Theatre without doubt, proved they are one such band. From the average age of the audience one wouldn’t imagine there to be too many novices at Christian...

Forget Me Not Rob Gee Walker Theatre 23 March 2017 If it was Mr Gee’s aim to confuse us as much as his characters appeared to be in this one man show, he was highly successful. However one is certain that the confusion occurred more by accident than good management. The show is billed as part social commentary, park black comedy and part Cluedo. Confused? You will be. The story follows an ex-...

Justin Moorhouse Walker Theatre Sunday 19th February 2017 Not surprisingly enough given our current political turmoil people  just love comedy, so turnout for a Sunday night in February was impressive. It was obvious there were a lot of fans in expecting Justin Moorhouse to be as funny  if not funnier, than his last visit to the town. Did he succeed? More in a moment. First of all we turn our...

Iain Stirling Walker Theatre Saturday 11th February 2017 It is known that any role or act in the performing arts offers up its various challenges, how  the artiste deals with those challenges is a measure of how able or talented they are. Consequently measures are met and the reviewer can reflect on those times and how the artistse did or didn’t handle those challenges. That said one is acutely...

Dane Baptiste Walker Theatre Saturday 8th October 2016   Pre-cursed by Eshaan Ackbar the evening of comedy got off to a polite start. Eshaan delivered a twenty minute support set and it seems, took the audience a little by surprise. Fair to say this surprise worked against him as the audience were still wondering where he fitted into all things. His act continued undaunted and several of the...

The Collector Walker Theatre 29th September-1st October 2016   When one talks of history one often hears the adage that history is always written by the winners; Well maybe that’s so but it doesn’t mean to say that every account is necessarily  untrue.  “The Collector,” is the piece that one could hold up to the world and say this an honest account of The West’s behaviour in Gulf War 2 and we...

I, Elizabeth Walker Theatre Wednesday 15th June. There are so many times one sees the Royals going about their royal business, a wave, a smile and a handshake and it is difficult if not impossible, to really see what they are thinking or worrying about behind closed doors. Tonight theatre goers were treated to a fascinating look inside the rather tortured mind of one of the most celebrated royals...
