Critic Reviews of Missing Julie
‘Gripping take on Strindberg simmers with tension… a sophisticated and exact vision’
Gareth Lyr Evans, Guardian
'The social inequalities laid bare by the pandemic are at risk of being maintained in its aftermath. Missing Julie signifies that this is a moment when we can do something about it'
Gareth Williams, Whatsonstage
Gripping theatre that captures and holds the attention. It is a thoroughly worthwhile return to live theatre’
Richard Evans, Theatre Review North
‘Stylish, steamy and tightly wrought’
Nigel Smith, The Stage

Thor + Loki
Thor + Loki
By Harry Blake (House of Blakewell)
Vicky Graham Productions in association with HighTide, Harlow Playhouse and Something for the Weekend.
Our heroes Thor and Loki have destinies – destinies that just don’t fit. The Gods are counting on Thor to win the war against the Giants, but he hates violence, is useless with a hammer and prefers writing poetry. Hideous half-Giant Loki is destined to destroy the Nine Worlds, but she’s never hurt a fly. As war rages and The End Of The World approaches, an unlikely friendship is born. Can Thor and Loki find the strength to be themselves and save the world? Expect epic battles, mighty ballads and a chorus of tap-dancing trolls in this big-hearted comedy about friends, heroes and making a stand. Freely adapted from Norse mythology, Thor and Loki is a fierce and fabulous new musical for every misfit who wants to change the world a little bit.
