Live relays of plays from London and elsewhere come thick and fast now, so are no longer news, and we don’t blog them as often as we did in the early days of this new theatrical venture. However, occasionally one comes along that deserves highlighting (in our opinion!). Into this category falls the Royal Shakespeare […]

A Live Relay of the National Theatre’s Christmas show, Treasure Island, was shown locally a couple of weeks ago. If you missed it, and have heard the rave reviews it attracted, there’s another chance to see it, and best of all you can take the smaller ones – it’s suitable for ages 10 and upwards […]
When live broadcasts from theatres and concert halls were first introduced, some years ago, they were a rare treat. Now they come thick and fast, and the next couple of months seem to be particularly busy.

“Who’d have thought, Obadiah, that forty years on we’d be …. doing a revival of Monty Python?” The opening of the four Yorkshiremen sketch was a dead cert for inclusion in the much advertised Monty Python reunion show which concluded its short run at the O2 Arena in London on Sunday night with a live […]
