I am no fan of Oscar Wilde. His loquacious, verbose dialogue, filled to bursting with obscure similies and pointless metaphors is, to me, tiresome. However, DramSoc’s version of his Biblical work was truly special, and re-ignited a perhaps lost passion for Bristol DramSoc and their ability to create unique, powerful and professional theatre. Vacuous text […]Read More “A masterclass” ★★★★★ DramSoc’s “Salomé” @ The Loco Klub
I got to see Hamilton AGAIN in March, after having seen it in January (read the full review here!).

This piece was originally published in the Arts section of Epigram, Bristol University’s Student Newspaper. The best theatre weaves its way into your heart, attaching you to the characters and drawing you into the story. It makes you want to know more, raises serious questions about how you respond to the action on-stage and leaves […]Read More Review: Bristol Playwrights’ Collective @ Room Above, March 2016
This piece was originally published in September 2017 in Epigram – Bristol University’s student newspaper. Freshers week has a strong stereotype of excessive drinking, aggressive socialising and endless parties but, in spite of appearances, those who don’t partake in said activities do exist and need to be heard. Imagine the scenario: you’re standing in the queue on […]Read More Let the silent speak: Introversion at freshers

They are not all evil people, who have an […]Read More Where did it all go wrong?
