Hull Truck

Performance Analysis: All We Ever Wanted Was Everything by Luke Barnes and Middle Child

I undertook an eight hour trip to Hull to catch some shows as part of the city’s tenure as the UK City of Culture in 2017. Here’s some reflections on Middle Child’s All We Ever Wanted Was Everything, an energetic follow-up to their previous collaboration with Luke Barnes: Weekend Rockstars.

Performance Analysis: The Hypocrite by Richard Bean

This week I headed up to Stratford-upon-Avon to catch the Royal Shakespeare Company, Hull Truck and Hull City of Culture 2017’s production of The Hypocrite by Richard Bean. Directed by Phillip Breen and starring Mark Addy and Caroline Quentin in the lead roles this was a very enjoyable watch and, I think, tells us an awful lot about the English Revolution, some of its successes but mainly its failures.
