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.
