An uncomfortably unfunny and unnecessarily foul endurance exercise for the audience.

Review: Playing Pretend (The Big Crew)

It's exhausting trying to keep a dream alive. The Big Crew present a post-art-school existential crisis that is painfully relatable for most of us with Arts degrees.

Five Faves: Vegetarian Burgers

A good vegetarian burger can be hard to come by, but is usually all the more satisfying for it. I became a vegetarian in my early teens, and in the past decade I've had some pretty terrible veg burgers (and veg meals in general, as all vegos have. Chips and salad, anyone? I was once...
