Review of Four Nights in Knaresborough

Review by Nomi Bailey The challenge and scope for a playwright when producing an historical drama is that when working in a well-known historical framework, because of the lack of contemporary literature their imagination comes to the fore. Set after the murder of Thomas a Becket in Canterbury Cathedral in December 1170, Paul Webb’s play explores the aftermath for the four Knights who committed the deed on the orders of Henry II, who then tried to absolve himself by saying […]

Review of ‘Arabian Nights’

By Laura Ings Self It has become apparent from their appearances in main house shows over the last couple of seasons that the BLT Youth Group hosts some very talented members. Arabian Nights clearly demonstrated that this talent is not limited to one or two members and indeed showcased some of the brilliant talent being nurtured by leader-directors Jessica-Ann Jenner, Richard Stewart and Hazal Han. Many of the stories of the Arabian Nights are familiar to us, but some, I […]

Review of ‘Nell Gwynn’

by Taylor Green One great merit of Jessica Swale’s play, in addition to it being immense fun, is that you get to see Nell Gwynn not through the eyes of others but very much on her own terms.

Filming will be over a weekend in September in the Bromley area. The dialogue is quite brief and concerns a relationship between the two actors over a 2 way radio when the woman is sending out an SOS message. If you’d like to get involved, […]
