A classic viewing of all the Theatreland play houses by night. The authentic commentary, by Ben Shafik - a player himself - gives an authentic feel to the West End's theatres - and is backed by real music.
Next version will be more upbeat as, suggested, to celebrate Britannia's unbeatable heritage.
(Over 6000 viewings and all good reviews to date).

A note from the author

I took these pictures to show off London theatres as they are seen -most often - by theatre goers, at night.

Thanks to Ben Shafik for his lighthearted and informative commentary and Fionn O'Lochlainn for the original music.

Watch out for the new version with current liveries and the names of the theatres as they appear.



Broken Glass, by Arthur Miller

This award winning drama tells the story about Phillip and Sylvia Gellburg, a couple who live in Brooklyn New York in 1938. The play is fast moving in terms of the exquisite development of the story however tension grips throughout which slows time down a little.

Broken Glass

"The production is punctuated by an cellist who plays onstage, Laura Moody, performing a score by Grant Olding reminiscent of Elgar’s turbulent, grief-filled cello concerto. It greatly adds to the power of the production". Charles Spencer - Telegraph


Broken GlassPhillip, obsessed is a workoholic. His own desire seems to be a need to understand really anything at all. He has little time for his wife. Then quite suddenly Sylvia becomes paralysed. She had been reading newspaper reports of Kristallnacht in Germany. They call in their Doctor. Harry Hyman.

The doctor becomes close with Sylvia to get closer to determining the source of Sylvia’s affliction- hysterical paralysis 'diagnosed' as down to her past as a young girl in anti-jewish Nazi Germany. . A relationship between them invariably develops that has consequences. The entire family are caught up in the guilt from recalled tragedies and so it goes on.
