REVIEW: Necessary Devil by Knight and Dais Entertainment, Paris Fringe 2020 ★★☆☆☆

This moment was always going to arrive. The moment where a show intended for the stage has to make a move to online streaming, and doesn’t quite hit the mark. Necessary Devil, pitched as a profound insight into the worlds of religion, politics, conspiracy and evil is brought to us by a man named Luke […]

REVIEW: Growing into My Skin, Ioana Goga, Paris Fringe 2020 ★★★★☆

There is something to be said about a piece of art which has the scope to be both deeply personal and widely universal. Ioana Goga’s Growing into My Skin falls into this category.

Review: Drunk With A Pen, Joseph J Clark, Brighton Fringe 2019 ★★★★★

It’s almost as if someone wrote a show purposefully for our publication. Spoken Word navigating the sometimes tricky and sometimes debauchery-laden waters of alcohol. Sign us right up. Joseph J Clark wanders onto stage, pint in hand, to give us a rough outline of the contents of the oncoming thirteen and a half poems. He suggests […]
