Madness, Death, Sex and Syria.  Just another week on ArtsWatch.

Madness, Death, Sex and Syria. Just another week on ArtsWatch.

“At the Mountains of Madness” by H.P. Lovecraft at Omnibus in Clapham features in our Monday night ArtsWatch.

I met local actor Tim Hardy up at the Edinburgh Festival and am delighted to find him performing closer to home on 17 March in H.P. Lovecraft’s “At the Mountains of Madness”.

Early one Sunday morning I got treated to a bit of one-to-one Shakespeare and found out about the cult writer

H.P. Lovecraft.


On Tuesday, find out about “Every One” at BAC.

Every One BAC

Greg Tinker will give us a review of this much anticipated piece showing at BAC until 19th March.  A re-imagining of “Everyman”, this is described as a bold and haunting play.  Are you all right going on your own Greg?





“Four Play” at Theatre503 features in Wednesday night’s show.Four Play

“Four Play” has been getting 5* reviews all round at Theatre503 in Battersea.  This is another chance to hear my interview with the writer, Jake Brunger and director, Jonathan O’Boyle when I met them before opening night.  A new comic play about sex and commitment in the 21st century, this is on until 12 March. It’s a small space but a big play, so get booking as you are in for a massive treat.

Jean Rabbit-Somerville continues her arty look at all things…arty in Wandsworth.  She’s bringing us a report about Gardens Speak which is an interactive sound installation from Syria.  Sounds intriguing? Then listen in to her report on Thursday’s ArtsWatch.
