#PRIMAFACIE: thanks @williamcooper718 and @harryb_the_jug’s mama for treating me to a #JodieComer tour-de-force. Petered out by the end, could have cut the final ten minutes but splitting hairs here. Outstanding sound as always by Ben & Max Ringham - (@chk_chk remember that Wiretapper street gig?) #theatre #london

#DEMENTORS: there’s all kinds of funky weirdness snuck away around #London and this week’s entry backstage at @thecoronettheatre are some puppets - guess who they are - and the dress of their puppeteers… thanks @inikibikini for the excursion #puppet #puppeteers #theatre #nottinghill

#BACKTOTHEFUTURE: and Back to the Theatre to see this, definitely worth it for the effects but such a cramped theatre, hate seeing things in the West End. Anyway, banging performances from Olly Dobson who nails Marty McFly and Hugh Coles who plays a perfect George McFly. #theatre #london #greatscott #backtothefuturethemusical

#SLOANESQUARE: finally coming into its own after decades of nothing. Perfectly shaded, fountain, a bar, nice and cool. Was planning to cycle somewhere else but I’m fairly planted here… #london #chelsea #theatre

#THREESISTERS: finally, an outstanding production to banish the memory of that terrible crime committed by the #Almeida and #RebeccaFrecknall AND #CordeliaLynn upon us. This was hysterical, tragic, brilliant. Big up #InuaEllams for another cracker. #theatre #londontheatre #chekov

#POETINDACORNER: unfortunately they managed to take a whole bunch of my favourite things and make a rather boring play, with moments of fun and good writing. Trying to turn the theatre into a grime gig was cheap and trite. One to avoid, I should think. #theatre #london #grime #dizzeerascal

#THEVISIT: #TonyKushner adaptation which hits four hours, jeepers. Just overheard someone saying that this is only the second performance… balls. #theatre #londontheatre #FriedrichDürrenmatt #TheOldLadyComesToCall

#THEWELKIN: excellent show 7/10, great performances from most of the cast and some great writing from #LucyKirkwood, although the energy petered out a bit in the final twenty minutes, and story felt pointless, but well worth it for the previous 2 hours 40. Note: injection of the Kate Bush song is as stupid as a soup sandwich and wrecked the suspension of disbelief. Top work from #MaxinePeake after the meh #Avalanche and brilliantly unsympathetic amoral lead played by #RiaZimitrowicz #theatre #london

#SCROUNGER: met up with #AthenaStevens after her latest @scroungerplay to talk about the life-changing powers of an #Olivier nomination, the state of the #theatre industry and opportunities for writers and disabled creatives. Great conversation derailed slightly by floods of football fans - i should have checked that Chelsea were playing at home… to be continued, full article soon. #londontheatre #olivierawards #playwright #director #actor
