Review: Tom, Dick & Harry at the Alexandra Palace

Tom, Dick & Harry “Gentlemen, if we pull this off it will be the greatest escape mankind has ever made”. Low stakes, then, in this enjoyable play depicting of the escape from Stalag Luft III Prisoner of War camp.

Tom, Dick & Harry begins in 1943, with a motley crew of captured airmen imprisoned in Stalag Luft camp in Nazi Germany.

Review: ALL OF US at The Dorfman, National Theatre

Review: TASTING NOTES at the Southwark Playhouse

Tasting Notes which has just opened at Southwark Playhouse — and is billed as a new musical with legs (vinophiles will get the reference) — should perhaps more correctly be titled “Six Characters in Search of a Wine Bar” (or even, “Six Characters in Search of a Place to Drown their Sorrows”).
