HILARIOUS and relatable, Vikki Stone is an absolute must-see.

IT can be hard to make a well-known play fresh, this is a particular problem with Shakespeare. How do you keep the integrity of the text yet bring it up to date? Whilst Shakespeare’s words are exceedingly good at being relevant today, how to you help the rest of the performance bridge that gap? Somehow that is exactly what the transport theatre have done with the comedy ‘As You Like it’.

WELL, we learned a lot. Strabismus, crepuscule and cow to name just three words but we also laughed and applauded a whole lot more at a terrific production of the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee which ran for three nights at the Harlow Playhouse. What marks this musical out is the characters. Not only a very dry and witty Darren Day as vice-principal Douglas Panch as well as the outstanding singing of Niki Evans but it was the patchwork personalities of the contestants that really lit up the playhouse.

Accessed via an entrance in the basement, known as The Hatch, the drains aren’t for the faint-hearted or claustrophobic, and getting around will mean crawling on hands and knees.
