Culture Bound – May

Culture Bound – May

The reviewing pattern established by the #30plays30days project in April (click here) continued throughout May at the rate of at least one production per day. With the few  shows I also completed as trial runs in March I have, therefore, now reviewed a total of 74 online shows (for full index, click here). In the circumstances it seems inappropriate to offer star ratings for the theatre productions as the same criteria simply cannot apply. However – all titles received a full review.
