Theatre

  • Fight, fight!

    Fancy getting stuck into some Shakespeare this autumn? Just across the border from us, the RSC in Stratford is staging an anarchic version of King John. One of its stars, Richard Pryal, filled us in.

  • The best local culture picks this autumn

    My god I love Autumn. The kids are back at school, it's game on for clothes shopping, and best of all, it's a culture-vulture paradise, with loads of cool stuff to see across Bucks & Oxon. Ready with your red marker? Then let's get planning.

  • Review: War Horse, Oxford

    Eleven years after it first premiered, is War Horse still first past the post for must-see theatre? Read our brand new verdict from the New Theatre Oxford gala night.

  • A day in the life of… a theatre director

    Losing star actors, play Dobble, chucking mashed potato around - it's all in a (surreal) day's work for Chipping Norton Theatre's artistic director.

  • What’s up doc?

    Can't get an appointment at your local GP surgery? Go see one on tour instead! Dr Michael Mosley is rocking up in Wycombe and is on hand to answer all your impertinent questions. Muddy meets him.

  • Well, hello young man!

    It's a Dirty (Dancing) job, but someone's got to do it. Muddy meets Michael O'Reilly, sultry star of Dirty Dancing. Catch him at Wycombe Swan next week (but don't throw watermelons at him, he doesn't like it).

  • Your unmissable 2019 culture planner

    Want to make the most of 2019? Muddy's culture vulture Kerry Potter has curated the best new TV, music, theatre, film, books and art of the year. Get yer diary out!

  • How He Does it

    The most iconic modern role for a male dancer is the Swan in Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake - so what does it take to make it? Current Principal Max Westwell, who stars in the ballet next week at the Wycombe Swan, reveals all.
