  • Theatre Review: The Lovely Bones at Birmingham REP

    My name is Salmon. Like the fish.

    You may have read the bestselling novel, or seen the film directed by Peter Jackson, but now you have another chance to see The Lovely Bones on stage as it returns to Birmingham Repertory Theatre before embarking on a UK tour following a hugely successful debut last year. Directed by Melly Still with incredible set design by Ana Inés Jabares-Pita, it tells the story of 14 year old Susie Salmon who’s a very normal teenage girl in Pennsylvania with a crush, a questionable wardrobe and Biology homework.

    Unprecedented Levels of Christmas Excitement

    There’s something about being a blogger that means you plan seasonally way in advance. Or, at least, you probably should do. I feel like I’ve been working up to Christmas since August but rather than feel festive fatigue, I’m ridiculously excited for it this year. I’m talking Buddy the Elf levels of excitement. Bash-me-over-the-head-with-a-candy-cane and can-we-put-the-Christmas-tree-up-in-October excited (which I’ve refrained from, by the way… if only because I’m too short to get up into our loft and fetch the decorations down). This is totally unprecedented for me. Historically, I wait until my birthday has been and gone – which is next week – and then I start thinking about Christmas. So what’s changed this year?
