A Newly Imagined Midsummer


The recently built Bridge Theatre created a far too-short run for Nicholas Hytner's new production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The theatre’s flexible staging allows for an ‘in the round’ production with groundlings standing near to the rising rostra to interact with the performance. The finale saw them dancing with the whole cast. I loved the energy of this production. Soon to be streamed.

Farewell Jennings


RIP Jennings. 1973-2019. Despite your traumas you always had a smile on your face. I'm sad to say goodbye to you today. One love to you and your Temiar brothers and sisters. A true Assam child.

Jennings was the first baby that I helped to deliver when doing my research in the Malaysian rainforest. He grew up having survived many childhood difficulties, into a friendly, bright and sunny person. He is sadly missed.
