ANTHEM FOR A DYING SOLDIER(S)
JOURNEY’S END
at Duke of York's Theatre

ANTHEM FOR A DYING SOLDIER(S)

A WOMAN KILLED WITH KINDNESS
at the National (Lyttelton)

THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE
at the Young Vic

DYSFUNCTIONAL IRISH CATHOLIC

EMPEROR AND GALILEAN

SHOCK AND AWE

Never before staged in English, Jonathan Kent’s viscerally thrilling production boils down this epic into three and a half heart-pounding hours.

GOOD TO THE VERY LAST INSULT
MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING
at Shakespeare’s Globe

GOOD TO THE VERY LAST INSULT

Unlike the garish version being performed in the West End, this Much Ado relies on the text and the acting. And it works.
