Wilderness sabbatical

From now on I’ll be updating this blog only sporadically, if at all.

There are a few reasons:

  • I have a full-time job and a lot of on-the-side activities, and something had to go – there aren’t enough hours in the day, and if there were I still wouldn’t have the stamina.
  • I recently realised I’d started seeing reviews as the chore I had to endure in order to see the show for free. Not a healthy attitude for a reviewer.
  • I got sick of going to the theatre on my own. (I know, world’s smallest violin, etc.)

I might still occasionally blog shows that I go to see for fun, so if you’re subscribed to this blog (by RSS or email or what have you), don’t unsubscribe: just leave that subscription ticking over in the background and see what happens. (It’s more effort to unsubscribe than to stay subscribed, right?)

Before I go I’d like to plug one of the aforementioned on-the-side activities:


Blackshaw’s a combined theatre company, events organiser and drama education service. If you’ve found, by reading my reviews, that you share my taste in theatre to any extent, Blackshaw should be worth keeping an eye on. Our first major production will be Titus Groan, a stage adaptation of the first novel in Mervyn Peake’s Gormenghast trilogy, slated for Autumn 2011.

Thanks for reading. See you around the web.
