Two Four One One - it might be funny

Written by Defnet Media

unknown Two Four One One by Grace Surman and Cathy Butterworth is on at the bluecoat next month. A performance peice - live art they say. Most probably some strange live art peice - but from what I have heard and if you like strange and out of the ordinary then this could be good.

Written by Defnet Media

webnowriting-300x2211The Myth of Escape

In the wake of the anniversary of 9/11, a provocative, timely dark comedy that asks the question we are often too entrenched to ask ourselves… are any of us truly free?

Billy finds himself in a cell next to Alex. Neither are sure what they have done wrong. Perhaps nothing. It doesn’t seem to matter. Someone wanted them imprisoned and so they have been. Everything is permitted but nothing goes unpunished.

“Enthralled” The Observer

A Happystorm Theatre / Breathe Out Theatre World Première Tour

The Myth of Escape By Rob Johnston, writer of Rid The World (Unity Theatre). Directed by John Garfield-Roberts, director of Theatre Uncut (Everyman Theatre).

Written by Defnet Media

Seeking emergency accommodation…

In June 2011, greenroom, Manchester’s iconic theatre for all things new, contemporary and experimental closed its doors for the final time. Beyond the loss of one of the Manchester‘s ‘hidden treasures’, there is also the story of the creative community it nurtured over the course of its existence, as a ‘home’ for artists, giving opportunities to literally thousands of young people looking to take their first steps into an often precarious career.

Theatre review: Macbeth, Everyman Theatre, Liverpool

Written by Defnet Media

Macbeth_David Morrissey as Macbeth and Julia Ford as Lady Macbeth © Helen Warne

The Everyman is dead. Long live the Everyman.

The last time I saw Dave Morrissey on stage at the Liverpool Everyman, we were both members of the Everyman Youth Theatre. He often performed with his friend Ian Davies, later to call himself Ian Hart.

The pair were extraordinary for their great focus and clarity, focus that would be remarkable even in jobbing actors, and all the more so as they were teenagers improvising. Morrissey and Hart always had presence, and you knew, however young they were, that you were in the presence of talent that would out. (This was the same talent and intention we saw in our bare workshop space when a young woman did an absolutely captivating 10 minute improvisation on the unpromising theme of ‘feeding the ducks’. Even at 12, we were spellbound. She was Cathy Tyson, later to star in Mona Lisa.)


Morrissey’s Macbeth is a man’s man, very present and very solid, and the actor brings his full range of talents to bear.

The Gods are angry and one man's blind ambition to appease them unearths a hideous secret. As the pieces of the puzzle come together it soon becomes clear that his only success will be in sealing his own tragic fate. Writer, director and actor Steven Berkoff's adaptation of Sophocles's greatest Greek tragedy promises a stirring theatrical experience.
