What We're Watching - Queen Margaret

Royal Exchange, Manchester Jade Anouka is compelling in Jeanie O’Hare’s bold take on Shakespeare and the life of Margaret of Anjou by Susannah Clapp A few years ago a reader grumbled that I only wrote about women. If only, I thought – my female features clenched in a grim rictus. Would I ever have enough material to do that – even for a week? Well, I do now. The stage is looking different. Not only because actresses are taking on “male” parts. But because writers and directors are doing for women what Tom Stoppard did for attendant lords in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead: refocusing a familiar story through the eyes of characters once considered marginal.

What We're Watching: A Comedy About A Bank Robbery

Mischief Theatre tackles the challenge of following-up some of the best comedies to grace the stage in recent years with confidence and style. The Comedy About a Bank Robbery is a marked departure from the Company’s early works. There is move away from contemporary UK-based settings and a fondness for theatrical in-jokes towards what, initially at least, appears a more conventional method of storytelling. The Comedy about a Bank Robbery is set in late 1950s / early 1960s Minneapolis where crime is rampant.
