Reared | Theatre503 | 4-28 Apr
If you’ve already read our Q&A with the writer of ‘Reared’, John Fitzpatrick, then you will already know what this is all about. If you don’t, quick, read the interview, it’s here. But, in a nutshell, it’s a dark comedy about three generations of a family, the relationships between them, and their struggles in dealing with troubles expected in the future. I think it sounds fabulous, see the venue website here to book tickets.

Jay Foreman’s Disgusting Songs For Revolting Children | Greenwich Theatre | 8 Apr
Another show for your holidaying kiddies, now, and it’s one that I can honestly say is well described by the title. Jay Foreman’s songs are more often than not pretty disgusting, but let’s face it, your very possibly revolting children, no doubt revelling in a poo-joke as I type, will more than love it. And the chances are, you’ll love it too: I laughed a lot when I saw the very likeable and funny Jay Foreman performing this gruesome mixture of songs, comedy and poems. See the venue website here for details.
