Welcome to The Theatre Blog! 


  1. Dear The Theatre Blog,

    I work in the Marketing Department of Wyvern Theatre & Arts Centre, Swindon. We’re trialling the process of inviting bloggers to our Swindon shows, with the request that they LIVE TWEET and blog about their experience in exchange for 2 x free tickets, a tour of the theatre and press benefits. These often include free drinks and nibbles, programmes etc.

    We would like to extend this offer to The Theatre Blog team for the opening night of the highly acclaimed show, Peter James’ Dead Simple. This takes place on Mon 20 May, 7.30pm at the Wyvern Theatre. If this would be of interest I’m happy to go ahead make preparations.

    Best wishes,

    Ben Dunn

    Marketing & Promotions Assistant
    Swindon Wyvern Theatre & Arts Centre

  4. Hello,

    I would like to interest you in the Beer Sheva Fringe Theatre’s award winning production, “BPolar”, which will be performing at VAULT 2016, 27-31 January, 2016.

    This innovative take Gogol’s “Diary of a Madman" presents the new voice of contemporary Israeli theatre, apolitically addressing the universal challenges of life in the modern world while still blowing a socially critical punch to the establishment.

    The hard facts:
    A visual adaptation of Gogol’s “Diary of a Madman”
    Director: Yoav Michaeli
    Synopsis: The story of a gray clerk, who falls in love with his manager’s daughter. His love becomes an obsession and sparks the bipolar disorder that lurks within him. Based on Gogol’s classic short story, the development of the mental illness is illustrated onstage, through the eyes of its victim. All this, without a single word spoken onstage, through movement, video art, music, and lighting, in a unique and compelling stage language, which has gained the play the 2015 “Golden Porcupine” award for Best Director.
    Venue: Brick Hall; The Vaults, Leake Street, Waterloo, London SE1 7NN
    Telephone booking: 020 7492 1602

    Dates: 27-31 January 2016

    See you underground,

  5. Dear Theatre Blog,

    We would like to interest you in our next stage production, 'For the love of oranges'.
    Some say it is a love story. Others, a controversial piece of theatre.

    Inspired by true historical events, this play questions our understanding of what it means to be British and what has and will be done to secure links with Europe.
    In this time of BREXIT and the racial divisions this has provoked it seems right for creative organisations to offer challenging art.

    The performance will take place on the 10 November at Seven Artspace, Leeds.

    If you would like more information or VIP tickets for an earlier performance please email us at www.2bacting.tv@hotmail.co.uk

    Thank you

    Kind regards
    David Jones
