Review of Great Britain

by Taylor Green Richard Bean’s 2015 satirical play Great Britain takes us back to the Fleet Street of the tabloids of ten to fifteen years ago, just before various “dark arts” were exposed, and when mobile phones were still a novelty. In those days publicists arranged who was and who was not in the papers, celebrity bins were rummaged, and personal details were blagged from banks. The tabloids had corrupt relationships with both the police and politicians. They were all […]

This has happened informally for some years with some members shadowing experienced directors to gain experience to help them decide if directing is a route they would like to follow. The Board […]

Their choice falls on the […]
