A flipside of the play's ambitious storytelling is that its overall direction of travel isn't always very clear. Lotus Beauty is a poignant look at the human need to fit in – set against the backdrop of racism, sexism, and violence. Full Review

Charlotte Bate marshals the action nicely, playing chief plotter Cassius – while Jack Myers gets deserved laughs as aloof senator Casca. Page's production shows [the] audience some fun. Full Review

WhatsOnStage

Slowly but surely, society is waking up to the mental health and suicide crisis affecting young males. And as Ryan Calais Cameron's lively and meaningful new show makes clear, young black men are at particular risk due to the discrimination they face in a white-run society. Full Review

Dominic Hill's hard-working production is very easy to settle into. Normally, nobody cares about other people's dreams – but you'll happily make an exception for Hill, and his wacky re-imagining of Shakespeare's somnambulant story. Full Review

Going Through
Shepherds Bush
WhatsOnStage

Going Through is many things: an unusual coming-of-age tale and a feminist piece about self-expression. And at the very end, it also packs a political punch.' Full Review

...Come From Away is wonderfully sung and produced. Most importantly of all, it has a feelgood factor that simply doesn't let-up. In divided times, that's a powerful antidote indeed. Full Review

Sami Ibrahim's new show offers an original metaphor for Middle Eastern politics – making an ironic statement at the outset that there will, of course, be no jokes involved. Full Review

Wolf Cub (London)
Hampstead
WhatsOnStage

...Ché Walker's gutsy and subversive new play Wolf Cub instead wonders whether humans are in fact qualified to bring up other humans...Wolf Cub doesn't take long to bear its teeth. Full Review

WhatsOnStage

The show is more concerned with the flashy show-stopping scenes such as the joyful ending, when a talented dance ensemble and (somewhat undermaximised) band fill the stage alongside the key performers. Fun and straightforward – in those moments, Dirty Dancing seldom puts a foot wrong. Full Review

But there's little harm in indulging yourself with the rose-tinted spectacles for little more than an hour, and this indulgence – above the politics – is the draw of Education, Education, Education. Full Review

WhatsOnStage

there are plenty of positive adjectives with which to describe Gemma Barnett's performance in A Hundred Words for Snow: a one-woman play now at Trafalgar Studios. Full Review

Coming Clean
West End
WhatsOnStage

for a previous production Coming Clean helped blaze a trail for explorations of gay culture in big West End venues. For that reason, and for four quality performances, Elyot's debut is well worth a look. Full Review
