Twelfth Night (Crucible Theatre)
By Sophie Bush

Jonathan Munby's Twelfth Night is "the best Shakespeare production to come out of Sheffield Theatres for some years"

You're Never Too Old (tour – Bury St Edmunds)

As first plays go, "You're Never Too Old" is something of a "corker". it garlanded prise in Edinburgh this year; now south of the Border has a chance to see it too.

Three Men in a Boat (tour – Bury St Edmunds)

A couple of years ago, this three-hander dramatisation of the Jerome K Jerome classic in a basic – almost minimalist staging – had a thoroughly enjoyable and successful tour.

Tannhäuser (Norwich)

The second of the two Wagner productions brought by Theater Freiburg to Norwich proves musically to be the equal of "Parsifal".

Persuasion (tour – Bury St Edmunds)

The Italians have a name for this genre – pasticcio. It signifies a confection of music by many different composers (easy enough to do in those copyright-free days) harnessed to an original plot.

Parsifal (Norwich)

The brief season by Theater Freiburg at the Theatre Royal, Norwich opens with Wagner's "Parsifal". Right from its première it has proved problematic to stage.
