ROYALTY IN ABSENTIA
THE LAST OF THE DUCHESS
at Hampstead Theatre

at the National (Olivier)

WAR AND PEACE

Mike Bartlett may have bitten off more than the audience can chew in this state-of-the-nation play set in the near future.

MURKY SHADOWS
THE PLAYBOY OF THE WESTERN WORLD
at the Old Vic

MURKY SHADOWS

Acted with terrific verve, JM Synge’s grotesque 1907 comedy still has a bilious wit and a devilish glee.

MIDLIFE CRISIS
JUMPY
at the Royal Court, Downstairs

MIDLIFE CRISIS

An excellent cast, led by Tamsen Greig, handles the chaos and confusion the characters are battling with both hilarity and grace.

DESPERATE PLEAS
INADMISSIBLE EVIDENCE
at the Donmar Warehouse

DESPERATE PLEAS

Douglas Hodge takes the role of Maitland all the way, making lying, swindling and unraveling look completely honest.

FAILURE TO COMMUNICATE
COOL HAND LUKE
at the Aldwych

FAILURE TO COMMUNICATE

Not surprisingly, the stage version of Cool Hand Luke fails to deliver in the same way that the film version did.

HINTERLAND
BROKEN GLASS
at the Vaudeville

HINTERLAND

A masterful handling of Arthur Miller’s psychological drama makes a convincing case that this should be considered among the playwright's finer works.

IMPURE AT HEART
SAVED
at the Lyric Theatre (Hammersmith)

IMPURE AT HEART

Edward Bond’s seminal 1965 drama paints human nature in its starkest and most difficult-to-watch form.

VOICES IN THE NIGHT
THE VEIL
at the National (Lyttelton)

VOICES IN THE NIGHT

In his 19th century-set new play, Conor McPherson could have paid more attention to the tangible world than to that which we can't see.

SUNDAY DRIVE
DRIVING MISS DAISY
at the Wyndham’s Theatre

SUNDAY DRIVE

While the relationship between these characters is touching, the tension brewing outside their car is not conveyed effectively.
