Sheba, Brick Lane

This year I decided to make a London Bucket list. Tired as I am of always thinking ‘I really should do that’, I wanted to make more of this GLORIOUS city and do more varied things. Given that I tend to eat out a lot, a lot of my London bucket list pertains to food.

Since those humble beginnings, it’s been drafted, re-worked, workshopped and now appears in a lovely big two-act version at the Arcola Theatre. And there’s TONNES to celebrate here. The story is as jagged as the broken mirror shards that provide such a crucial plot point so early on.  ...
