Arts / 21/11/2021 Groan Ups: A playful look on growing up that isn’t a gripe to watch

Arts / 26/10/2021 Nothing Happens in a Petrol Station

On opening night, I huddled into UEA’s Drama Studio for Minatour’s first show of their season. I was also particularly excited as it was my first piece of live theatre I had seen since the pandemic. The play entitled Nothing happens in a Petrol Station performed for three nights at UEA’s Drama Studio. It was...

Arts / 26/10/2021 Outpost presents: ‘Uninhabited’- Eleanor Rodwell

Lockdown changed the concept of home radically for everybody. In some ways it might never be the same.

Theatre’s Intermission is Over

I describe myself as a theatre kid without the talent that most theatre kids possess. I adore everything about a trip to the theatre, I nearly exclusively listen to show tunes, and I collect all my theatre trip programmes. If I had a lick of talent, I would have been the most unbearable kid growing…
