West End Review – new plays special

26th November 2011



Mark Shenton (Sunday Express) and his guests Kate Bassett (Independent on Sunday), Charles Spencer (Daily Telegraph), and Matt Wolf (International Herald Tribune) discuss Collaborators (National Theatre), Reasons to be Pretty (Almeida), The Riots (Tricycle Theatre), and Backbeat (Duke of York’s). Recorded at Dewynters, 25 November 2011.

And there was lots of new material as well – there was that fantastic anecdote about the kids on the streets in Hackney text- messaging: don’t touch the Hackney Empire. They respected this place even though they pillaged the shops on either side of it.
