How Does The Ghost Stories Film Build On The Play?

I was lucky enough to see the European premiere of Ghost Stories (Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman, 2017) at the 2017 London Film Festival and it easily became one of my favourite horror films. It's a multilayered text which seems to effortlessly glide to it's conclusion. I was unaware until attending the premiere that there …

Review: A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Bridge Theatre, London

On 9th August I found my way to the Bridge Theatre to see A Midsummer Night's Dream. I was desperate to see this play, mainly due to Gwendoline Christie's casting, and I'm so glad I got to go before it closed. I was interested in this play partially due to the theatre. Having seen a …

Review: Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the London Palladium

On Wednesday 24th July my mum and I went to the London Palladium to see Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Review: Rock of Ages at the New Wimbledon Theatre

On Thursday 28th February I found myself at the New Wimbledon Theatre to see Rock of Ages. I booked this quite spontaneously and had no clue what would happen, which I think was a fantastic way to experience the show. The show was not exactly what I expected, more of a Rocky Horror vibe than …

Review: Dracula at the Churchill Theatre, Bromley

On Wednesday 17th October, I ventured out to the Churchill Theatre to watch a new production of Dracula. Billed as a multi-sensory experience rather than just a play, I was definitely incredibly intrigued by this production. However, I wasn't really expecting much. I was so wrong. This production was so good! When I heard it …
