Review | Tim Minchin – BACK

“I hope he doesn’t sing White Wine in the Sun”, I muttered in the car on the way to Oxford, “it makes me cry… not sad tears though…” Tim Minchin has this unique ability to get right under my skin in all the best ways – whether that’s making me laugh with the likes of…

Post-Malfi Blues

Let’s talk about Post Show Blues. Yes, it’s a real thing. It’s the feeling of sadness, loss even, after a show ends. Which, I suppose, for the uninitiated, sounds 100% ridiculous. It’s not just the week of the show that’s over here though – it’s the weeks of rehearsals, weeks of getting to know your…
