Hiran Abeysekera casts a spell over audiences as the title role in Peter Pan at the Regent's Park Open Air Theatre. He takes to the stage with a twinkle in his eye, immediately winning the audience over with his natural charm. Abeysekera flies around, gliding through the air, showcasing remarkable strength and agility whilst making it all look so easy. Click here for 5* review of Peter Pan.

Show of the Month
The Father at the Tricycle Theatre

The Father by Florian Zeller truly took me by surprise. Not only does your heart break as you watch Kenneth Cranham portray a man called Andre who is slowly losing his grip of reality, but we also see how dementia impacts and affects loved ones. Zeller's play is absolutely devastating; every detail, from the set to the sound to the direction and performances, enhances the production to the max. It is a masterpiece and absolutely unmissable. Click here for 5* review of  The Father.
