‘Orlando’ reviewed by Gordon the Optom

An unusual but most enjoyable play, certainly not the heavy Virginia Woolf that I expected. Very well produced and acted. Good light-hearted entertainment.

‘Uncle Jack’ reviewed by Gordon the Optom

To say that the audience applause was enthusiastic would be an understatement. The actors accepted a curtain call, but modestly refrained from accepting what could easily have been another two or three.

‘The Pillowman’ reviewed by Gordon the Optom

This topic of this play looks horrendous, but with such a clever script and magnificent, well directed performances, this could well be the outstanding play of the year. All theatre students should see this play to let them know what true acting is all about. If you appreciate quality, try and get a ticket, but with only 80 tiered seats in the auditorium be quick. Outstanding.

‘Side Effects’ reviewed by Gordon the Optom

This pair really knows how to present comedy, and this has rubbed off on the rest of the cast.

‘The Little Mermaid’ reviewed by Gordon the Optom

This show is for the 12+ age group. There is no nudity, but some scenes are a little suggestive.

A most enjoyable play, very well presented.

‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ reviewed by Gordon the Optom

It is always good to see a new slant on a Shakespearean play, and so even if you have seen this play several times you will love it.

‘Café Brosse’ reviewed by Gordon the Optom

Award winning director, Nicola Bond, has chosen a wonderful cast who have given their all to this play. They have extracted every funny situation and given the best possible delivery. There is a running (tedious) joke about the student travellers and brushes, hence the name of the café being Brosse (French for brush).
