It’s a Wonderful Life

It’s a Wonderful Life

★★★☆☆  Half-life:

They say your life flashes before you before you die and that’s certainly the impression left by Floating Brick Theatre’s version of It’s a Wonderful Life at the Storytelling Centre this week.

It’s A Wonderful Life

★★★☆☆  Profound:

The heartbeat of humanity which lies at the core of Frank Capra’s It’s A Wonderful Life is brought to the stage in a straightforward but never simple adaptation by Floating Brick Theatre, at the Cornerstone Centre to Saturday.

The WWI Wardrobe Project

★★★☆☆  Historical accuracy:

The WWI Wardrobe Project has emotional force as well as a certain charm as Immersive Response’s production seeks to make 1917 more immediate.

The Lower Depths

The Lower Depths

✭✭✩✩✩ Depths hidden:

✭✭✭✩✩ Sects and violence
