A CHINK IN THE ARMOR
DOUBT: A PARABLE
at the Tricycle Theatre

A CHINK IN THE ARMOR

(Please bear with us while we sort out formatting problems that for the moment are causing a plethora of italics)

John Patrick Shanley's Doubt forces audiences to take a fair amount of the action on faith. Many details of the plot just don't add up.

THE ARSONISTS
at the Royal Court Jerwood Theatre Downstairs

STRANGE BEDFELLOWS

This revival of Max Frisch's 1953 play The Fire Raisers( here re-titled The Arsonists ), a so-called moral play without a moral is a biting, enduring fable, that, on this occasion, has somehow mislaid its bite.

STATEMENT OF REGRET
at the National Theatre (Cottesloe)

TEAR DOWN THE WALL

No, playwright Kwame Kwei- Armah isn't quite the second coming of August Wilson. But his Statement of Regret has some powerful things to say about the need for the (British) black community to get a grip on its past so as to better handle its future.

OVER THERE
WAR HORSE
at the National Theatre( Olivier)

OVER THERE

War Horse is, in essence , an horrific World War I tale nevertheless, through a blend of puppet wizardry and touching (children's) story, it manages to be a compelling and moving theatre experience.

GIANTS OF THE EARTH
THE GIANT
at the Hampstead Theatre

GIANTS OF THE EARTH

Michelangelo faces off against Leonardo da Vinci, for bragging rights in Florence: The prize: Sculpting the statue of David. Antony Sher's The Giant adroitly hammers out the tale of this epic competition. But, given the protagonists, he could have carved out a little bit more of the back story.

at the Trafalgar Studios 2

SECRETS FROM THE GRAVE

Philip Ridley's Vincent River tells a tale of a grieving mother forced to deal with revelations about the proclivities of her deceased gay son. Sound familiar: As with Tennessee Williams's Suddenly Last Summer, this is potent and heart rending theatre.

Puppetry, lighting and sound come together to make this National Theatre production of War Horse, a ravishing live stage event. For those who want more meat on their animal fables, let them revisit Animal Farm.
