Editor’s Blog: Made in Dagenham and the plight of the British musical

By Theo Bosanquet via What’s On Stage

“Walking through the West End these days, you could be forgiven for thinking it was 1995 rather that 2015, such is the proliferation of ‘golden oldies’. And arguably, when it comes to new work, audiences would rather now get their fix from plays rather than musicals”

New work makes up nearly two-thirds of all British theatre productions

By Maev Kennedy via The Guardian

ANOTHER DAY Blackfriars cast final call




 “FIVE STARS: A truly amazing piece of theatre where the sights and sounds of the ordinary world enhanced the action.”

True theatre doesn’t have to take place in a huge Victorian building with a stage, proscenium arch, fancy sets, etc and “Another Day” the latest show from A Friend of a Friend Productions, proves this admirably with a site-specific promenade theatre show making the area around the London borough of Blackfriars a stage in its own right. The show, commissioned by the local authority to produce art that embraces and involves the local community, uses not one but 6 playwrights who base their own plays on stories and reminiscences from the Blackfriars population, whilst also contributing to an over-arching single story. A tough call you might think but Producer Susanna Narvaez and Director Patrick Maubert really delivered the goods on this project.
