Home: For A Lost Soldier
12 December 2018 - Tristan Bates Theatre
Proves timely in offering a glimpse of the aftermath of World War I as soldiers return home to their old lives, but some of the playing doesn't always feel entirely convincing.
9 December 2018 - Hope Theatre
Fine acting and meticulous direction document the treatment of women in special units in the early 1990s, and the play still proves relevant in warning of unbridled state control.
The Box of Delights
6 December 2018 - Wilton's Music Hall
A magical delight, with puppetry and vivid projections embellishing John Masefield's Christmas adventure story, proving an inventively spellbinding and unusual alternative to panto.
4 December 2018 - Etcetera Theatre
A germ of a good idea lies at the heart of this play which, as an absurdist or comic piece, could be stunning, but it's overworked with odd and dated devices and a lacklustre script.
A Christmas Story, The Musical
3 December 2018 - Waterloo East Theatre
A cast of adults and child actors re-create this well-known American Christmas tale, set largely in the 1940s, with commendable singing, energetic precision and considerable charm.
