The latest Toppermost article (by me) is on Bob Marley & The Wailers. Do comment on Toppermost if moved to comment.

Review of Richard II at Shakespeare’s Globe, with Charles Edwards as Richard II, with added notes “in defence of The Globe” at the end!


Review of Future Conditional, by Tamsin Oglesby. Directed by Matthew Warchus, his first venture as new Artistic Director of the Old Vic. The cast includes Lucy Briggs-Owen, Joshua McGuire and Rob Brydon. A five star play on education choices.


Hangmen review

Review of Hangmen by Martin McDonagh at the Royal Court. Another great McDonagh black comedy.


Albert Lee

Review of the first gig on the “UK Farewell Tour” by Albert Lee with His American Touring Band (Cindy Cashdollar on steel guitar)- at The Tivoli Theatre, Wimborne. The Palmerstons were support band.

Albert Lee ticket

One of the best plays this year, Hecuba by Marina Carr. A new play, adapted radically from Euripides.


Review added of Henry V at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. Directed by Gregory Doran, with Alex Hassell as Henry V. It pulls back on the patriotism, I thought, but is especially good on the comedy.
