Sharp dialogue, simple but effective sets and passionate character portrayals, Lantern Liverpool continues to build its reputation for pure contemporary theatre with its latest offering from Kraken Theatre. My Christian Name is written by David Mumeni, directed by Zoe Lafferty and Teatime, by Martina Horrigan, directed by David Milner. Both writers have made the bold [...]
There are a couple of spine-tingling moments in Treasured. Unfortunately, neither of them have anything to do with the script. Jen Heyes’ multimedia production, running at the Anglican Cathedral is a large-scale piece using projections, aerial acrobatics, live music and walk-through set-pieces. But its script – the theatrical rivets that should stitch Treasured together – [...]
A full day of all that’s great in Liverpool (and around) right now: it’s exactly what a taster of Threshold should look like, and it’s coming our way this month…
The world premiere at the Playhouse Studio is the hottest thing in the city right now – and its star is set to shine very brightly. David Lloyd talks to The Match Box’s Leanne Best.
He’s back for more. The time-travelling dream team of McGough and Moliere returns to complete their hat-trick of hilarity at the Playhouse next season.

Expect to witness physical theatre at its very best, as Emma Rice and Spymonkey spoof that grimmest of Greek tragedies in Oedipussy. It’ll have your eye out.
A Streetcar Named Desire is, perhaps, the Playhouse’s most complete production we’ve ever seen – and features a performance people will talk about for a long time.
A Liverpool-flavoured Ripper update, Gathering Jack was an enjoyable and imaginative production with genuine moments of the uncanny.
Imagine if The Inbetweeners (the second time we’ve referenced the hilarious Channel 4 show this week in a review) got stuck in a departure lounge after a week of beery mayhem in Malaga. That’s a little bit what Departure Lounge is like. Only it’s a musical. And everyone has a hidden secret or angst in [...]
Mogadishu’s gripping portrayal of modern school life is fast, furious and funny – but flawed.
Dry, avuncular and irrepressibly honest – not unlike the man himself – John Peel’s Shed is a wonderfully warm one man show, stopping off at the Unity for one night only next month.
Want to know how to get featured on SevenStreets? How about insult us hilariously, and then we’ll roll over and publicise your latest am dram production…
