Surprise! Yes, I bet you thought there weren’t going to be anymore of these reviews but after a medium length hiatus, I’m back. This time I’ll be reviewing episodes four, five, and six, the final episode, in their podcast format on Spotify as I have not been able to attend the final three live shows. From listening, the energy the performers give (shout out to Anna Barker) seriously comes through in the audio and makes me miss the live show feeling. Night of the Silver Moon is, for the most part, directed by Ben Kelly and written by John Mambo, Esteban Jaramillo, Finlay Langelaan, and Tom Aitcheson, a serialised, live performance and recording of a goofy spoofy radio drama.
One should always trust a Jonathan Price show. You will have a wonderful time. Guaranteed. The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde (a.k.a. the 19th century Shakespeare but funnier), under the brilliant directorship of Price has never made me want high tea more. This fantastic, lively, entertaining show for all ages is an absolute delight, bringing Wilde’s excellent text to life with Price’s physical direction and a talented cast and crew.
It’s school holidays once again, you know what that means? Another high quality children’s show at Circa Theatre, of course! I am delighted to see Mr Fungus Dreams (directed by Amalia Calder and Thom Monckton) on a blustery Saturday morning. The packed audience of Circa Two is mainly made up of those of the kindy-going age, none the less we are all entranced and entertained by the impressive performance of Fergus Aitken as the titular Mr Fungus.
