There is now less than a week to go until the election of the next President of the United States. For months, the key issues have been debated, televised, and scrutinised; the political gauntlets have been well and truly thrown; and now the world waits with baited breath for a result. Much has been made of the rising costs of the candidates’ campaigns – and if we in Britain felt we were lacking in our offerings of (monetary) support, now may be the best, and indeed the only remaining time to make that move. Obama’s “Runway To Change” collection has […]

More famous for its standard cotton basics than its glittering couture, Marks & Spencer has taken a bold step in collaborating with kooky Pat Field, and sadly some of the pieces demonstrate how Bradshaw’s brashness will never work for the masses – however to miss this completely would most definitely be missing out. Some of the dresses are truly inventive and new, their inspiration having been drawn from the carefully […]

Waste

Waste at The Almeida Directed by the admirable actor Samuel West, Harley Granville Barker’s Waste, who brought us The Voysey Inheritance, is a political 20th century play that was originally banned by the censors in 1907.  The Edwardian playwright deals with both adultery and abortion, making it a highly revealing and enlightening political drama and there is little wonder that it has managed to hold its own against the scrutiny of a modern day audience.  Centered around Henry Trebell, played by Will Keen, a radical MP who wants to turn the government system around to focus on education, the plot […]
