Oscars 2021 – Where to Watch the Films in the UK

The Father (2020) Review

Anthony is refusing assistance from his daughter Anne as he is ageing and no longer capable of taking care of himself. The onset of his dementia is causing his reality to be warped and creates such doubt in conversations with his loved ones and even more so his own mind.

Top 10 – Theatre Shows in 2016

Before I get into the list I thought it would be a great idea to mention that you can read about my 2016 Theatre trips here so you have an idea of which shows that I had to choose from when putting together my top 10 list of the year.

When picking the shows that could be in the list, I managed to narrow it down to 16! So then having to make the final pick was rather difficult as that is how much I really did enjoy and love them.

Just missing out on the list was Rocky Horror, Guys and Dolls, The End of Longing and Wicked. It was so difficult to have to leave out No Man’s Land as it was an absolute honour seeing Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart on stage. As well as Nice Fish with Mark Rylance (who is to be made a Sir).

2016 at the Theatre

Here I go with an overview of my 2016 of theatre trips to see musicals and plays. Touring shows that have come to the North East at the Theatre Royal in Newcastle and the Sunderland Empire. As well as managing to have a few trips down to London to take in what the West End has to offer! You can check out the list of shows here. I have somehow managed to out do 2015 catching 31 shows in 2016!

North East Theatre – April 2016

Considering I spend quite a lot of time at the Theatre (although not as much as I would like) I thought I would do a post each month highlighting the shows you can catch in the North East of England. I haven’t come across many blogs which feature shows in the North East and reviews of shows at either the Sunderland Empire or Theatre Royal in Newcastle come from the local papers/press.

Here is what you can catch around the North East in April!

Tues 5th-Sat 9th – Oliver! (Amateur Production, Tyne Theatre and Opera House)

Sat 9th –Patricia Routledge In Conversation With Edward Seckerson (Customs House/South Shields)

This is something I am looking to get a ticket for as I think it will be really interesting to see the legend that is Mrs Bucket from Keeping Up Appearances talking about her career etc!
