Review – Ettie’s Boys

This account of one of the Great War’s most under-reported struggles is long overdue, although Ettie herself would probably have wondered what all the fuss was about.

Review – Tainted Love

The play is very light comedy peopled with very stock characters telling a very unimaginative tale. But it isn’t actually boring, somehow. The actors are very good, despite some verbal fumblings, and the vernacular dialogue is dead-on.

Review – Margaret Fulton: Queen of the Dessert

Margaret Fulton: Queen of the Dessert was like attending a charming dinner party where you are sitting next to your best mate, but opposite Grandad Bob – who fights you for the gravy dish and can’t take his eyes from your chest. You turn to one side and love relishing in old memories and laughing at good times; turn to the other and you can’t escape the cringe-worthy stories and vulgar jokes.

While to some in the audience it may seem that the show itself is wanky, those audience members are clearly missing the point and should go watch something simpler, like standup comedy. Fät Wânk, with all its umlauts and accents, is primarily a show about how much superfluos rubbish passes for art these days.
