This play is about how a loving inter-racial couples navigates around having the difficult discussions around race.Read more
There was a palpable feel of tension and excitement in the auditorium of the Young Vic theatre, as we waited for the World Premier of Matthew Lopez's play to commence. A seven-hour, two-part play about the long lasting legacy of the Aids epidemic is pretty hard-core theatre viewing... by anyone’s standards.Read more
Full Disclosure Theatre curated a second masterpiece called XPOSED, hot on the heels of their debut in November 2017 at the Hen and Chickens Theatre - the second production has quickly evolved and expanded to a performance at Southwark Playhouse, which was a sell out. XPOSED is a new writing night featuring eight short plays by eight emerging writers, revealing the naked and entertaining truths about queer life from new production company, Full Disclosure Theatre.Read more
HER NOT HIM is the debut performance from new production company, Lughnacy Productions. Her Not Him is at Theatre503 above The Latchmere in Battersea until 3 February 2018. This is a play you do not want to miss.
I can't quite believe it is still January and there is even more LGBT theatre on in London. 2018 is off with a bang, and just two weeks after seeing Lobster at Theatre 503, I am back for another debut performance, this time Her not Him.
From the description, I was intrigued and looking forward to this performance. I wondered what scenario would lead to Bea being tempted away from Ellie. With so many people identifying more fluidly, it is good to see these stories on the stage.Read more
The beauty of Lobster is that it is such a universal story.
This story could belong to anyone, regardless of gender or sexuality.
We spoke to talented director Kayla Feldman about her hit play Lobster.

Purple Snowflakes and Titty Wanks... I was intrigued just by the title. And as a purple myself (don't like the word lesbian, why not call yourself a purple instead?!) I didn't actually know what a titty wank was until my girlfriend explained it 1 minute before the performance began!Read more
Two sisters from Ireland offer this awesome performance covering sibling rivalry, and how at age 15 everything seemed like the end of the world - but it wasn’t compared to adult life today. Whilst waiting for their Uber they reminisce over past experiences, including past girlfriends.Read more
I have to be honest, in that I wasn't entirely sure what to expect from this performance.
A one-woman performance from a white woman from Paris, France about Sex and Hip Hop - but I was advised it was absolutely on theme - talking about bisexuality so I cleared my schedule and returned to Theatre N16 for the second night in a row!Read more
I was lucky enough to be contacted by Christina Bloom, the star and creator of Inside Out and invited along to her first performance of her first play. I have to be honest, the bar for LBQ-themed performances in London has been rising steadily for the past 4-5 years (see from recent reviews of Turkey and Bullish from the past fortnight alone), however I didn't set any expectations as I reminded myself that this was Christina's debut.Read more
Inside Out is a show about discovering identity and defying stereotypes in a world that insists upon boxing, packaging, and labelling. Christina Bloom shares her experience with matters of the heart in this thought-provoking look at sexuality through the eyes of a one-woman, 'one-man' band. This show explores the cruelty of life, while celebrating small victories and progress towards acceptance.
2017 is the year of lesbian theatre. In London alone this year there have been over 20 plays taking place across London and Brighton alone, including Her Aching Heart, The Elephant Girls and Joan. I’ve been reviewing lesbian-themed theatre now for around 6 years in the city and whilst most of it is fringe theatre in theatres above pubs; the quality is growing and growing and Rotterdam is certainly aiming for the top spot, and is absolutely worthy of its current home in The Arts Theatre.Read more
