The Studio at Festival Theatre

The Homecoming

The Homecoming

★★★☆☆ Reverent:

Fidelity to the text characterises Leitheatre’s The Homecoming at the Festival Theatre Studio. The result is a well-crafted production that could probably do with showing a little less respect.

Heroine

Heroine

★★★★☆ Raw
Hilarious and chilling by turns, Heroine – Mary Jane Wells’ one-woman show at the Studio of Festival Theatre – tells a compelling story while digging deep into subjects so raw they are still taboo.

Leaf by Niggle – junior review

★★★★★ Amazing:
Niggle is a painter. He is an unsuccessful painter. He is an unsuccessful painter because he has his mind set on only one thing – a picture of a tree.

Dolly West’s Kitchen

Dolly West’s Kitchen

★★★★★ Feisty fighting:
Dolly West’s Kitchen tells the tale of war: war between countries, war within families and the personal wars everyone fights. Leitheatre’s production at the Studio is feisty, fun and it certainly grips and entertains.
