Review: Wasp at UEA’s Drama Studio

Wasp, at UEA’s drama studio, creates an atmosphere of poignancy even as you walk in the room.  The play is staged in the round, with the audience seated looking onto the little wooden stool that forms the extent of the set for the whole piece. As we come in, we are introduced to two of...

UEbaes: Campus Love Stories (2)

Why DC is Braver than Marvel

The DC v Marvel feud is one that has been going on for several years now. Since the mid-2010s, these cinematic superhero franchises have been compared and contrasted by critics and fans alike.

Music Videos – Are They Necessary?

Growing up with a teenage sister in the early 2000’s, MTV ruled our television screen. Counting down the top charts while we fought over whose turn it was to take over the control, we spent the weekends dancing to music videos in the living room. But in an age where Spotify and TikTok now take...

    Something Worth Sticking To

    Between a parent and a child, the common denominator is love. But is love a skill we have naturally? Do our parents instinctively know how to love us?...
