Chagos 1971

Chagos 1971

★★★☆☆ Dark machinations:

Chagos 1971, writer-director Nathaniel Brimmer-Beller’s new work for Black Bat Productions at Zoo Playground, deals with important events in a way that is uneven but has a great deal going for it.

White

White

★★★★☆ Layered:

Comic, brutal and certainly confrontational, the UK premiere of James Ijames’ White at St Cecelia’s Hall delivers a well-judged prod at the often unguarded underbelly of white liberal self-satisfaction.

Technicolor

Technicolor

★★★★☆ Extra-terrestrially cool:

Black Bat’s Technicolor is a freewheeling exercise in both nostalgia and modernity that is highly recommended.

Mack The Knife

Mack The Knife

★★★☆☆       Knife-edge noir:
Exuding menace and evoking smoky nightclubs, Black Bat’s Mack The Knife at the Bourbon in the Free Fringe has some odd moments but ultimately impresses.

Frost/Nixon

Frost/Nixon

★★★☆☆ Intelligent:
Clever and ambitious, EUTC’s Frost/Nixon at the Bedlam is uneven in execution. Peter Morgan’s play – later a successful film – features a series of celebrated TV interviews between David Frost and disgraced US president Richard Nixon
