The Sonneteer at the Landor Theatre: Review for Everything Theatre

I reviewed The Sonneteer at the Landor Theatre for Everything Theatre: Sebastian Michael was inspired to write The Sonneteer after a friend posted a sonnet a day on Facebook.

Macbeth in Abney Park Cemetery: review for Everything Theatre
