"Space Cadette" / "Blue"

My first two theatre reviews of 2019 – inevitably, two very different pieces of work. First up was “Space Cadette”, part of a curated season of work from various festival fringes at The Other Room – a science-fiction-inflected cabaret performance from the very talented Laurie Black.

A few days later came “Blue” from Chippy Lane at Chapter – a West-Walian family comedy-drama heavily influenced (this is acknowledged by producer Rebecca Jade Hammond and writer Rhys Warrington) by Tennessee Williams; if the critical consensus thus far is anything to go by, it’s the hit of the season.
