Jo Clifford

Dear Lyceum,

Dear Lyceum,

A letter from playwright Jo Clifford

Dear Lyceum, I wrote this to you on Tuesday night when our play was due to open, and didn’t. And I didn’t know what to do with myself, so I thought I’d write to you and see if that helped me understand.

The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven

The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven

★★★★★ Sublime:

Forget any controversy linked to The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven. It should be judged purely as a theatrical experience. On those terms, it is moving, profound and quite brilliantly executed.

War in America

★★★★☆ Timely:
The Attic Collective’s War in America is passionate, emotional and committed – but not over-earnest, and certainly not polite.
