A MAZE WITHIN A MAZE
THE HOUR WE KNEW NOTHING OF EACH OTHER
at the National Theatre (Lyttelton)

A MAZE WITHIN A MAZE

The Hour We Knew Nothing of Each Other may be about nothing more than its admittedly unusual concept. Whatever it is, it's the nearest we've had so far this year to the theater's generally untapped potential as Rorschach test.

NOT ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPT
SPEED-THE-PLOW
at the Old Vic

NOT ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPT

David Mamet's Speed-the- Plow is a bruising morality play about, of all things, Hollywood. The play ends on an upbeat note...but that's not necessarily a happy ending.

NAMING RIGHTS
THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST
at the Vaudeville

NAMING RIGHTS

Yet another revival of Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest. This one is okay, with a domineering Lady Bracknell, in the person of Penelope Keith. No surprises, but enjoyable.

HAPPINESS IS....
HAPPY NOW?
at the National Theatre (Cottesloe)

HAPPINESS IS....

Lucinda Coxon's Happy Now? is an accomplished and highly likable play. The question in the title is not so easily answered, given just how easy it is to make someone unhappy now.

RAGE AGAINST THE UNIVERSE
THE LOVER/THE COLLECTION
at the Comedy Theatre

RAGE AGAINST THE UNIVERSE

The Lover/The Collection, two early plays by Harold Pinter, are dazzlingly well served by director Jamie Lloyd. The plays are sexy, smart and...funny.

MAKING THINGS RIGHT
NICHOLAS NICKLEBY
at the Gielgud Theatre

MAKING THINGS RIGHT

It's back: The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby. This six-and-a-half hour production (down from the original's eight-and-a-half hours) has some grand moments, but it doesn't set the theatre alight.

FULLY INVOLVED
THE VERTICAL HOUR
at the Royal Court - Jerwood Theatre

FULLY INVOLVED

Truth be told, The Vertical Hour, is minor (David) Hare. Yet, isn't it great to have a playwright who engages directly with the times in which we live.

CARD SHARP
DEALER'S CHOICE
at Trafalgar Studio 1

CARD SHARP

Patrick Marber's Dealer's Choice is a serious comedy that speaks volumes about addiction and obsession, fantasy and delusion.

NOT WASTED ON YOUTH
MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING
at the National Theatre (Olivier)

NOT WASTED ON YOUTH

This latest version of Much Ado About Nothing is edgy and neurotic...taking its cue from, shall we say, the maturity of its leading performers, Simon Russell Beale and Zoe Wanamaker.

TONE POEMS
MARIANNE DREAMS
at the Almeida

TONE POEMS

For a show about the transformative powers of art, Marianne Dreams of all pieces shouldn't feel so stillborn.
