Begin Again KtC’s latest production is fascinating for many reasons. For starters, we are given an insight into the dedication and idealism required from an entire generation in order to establish and administrate the Welfare State. The play's parallel life device also allows us to wallow in the seedy world of austerity Britain's racketeers, which, perhaps unsurprisingly, makes for the more gripping drama. Torch songs, shoe fetishes, Chiaroscuro lighting and contraband combine to create an atmospheric existential thriller. See revrew page 63. Touring

The Caretaker A faultless cast do full ]ustice to Harold Pinter's classic. Some ten years on from Begin Again and Britain is still a harsh place to live. Seeking shelter in one form or another are Dawes the tramp, Aston the recovering mental patient, and Mick the hard case busmessman. Abject misery goes hand in hand With some brilliantly timed comedy to create a memorable production. See revrew page 63. Glasgow The Arches until Sat 24 Apr.

Coma Improbable Theatre use every theatrical trick in the book -- and a few of their own -- to explore the grey area that is a comatose state. What exactly is gomg on in the mind of the victim, and how conscious are the choices made by the unconsoous? See prevrew page 61 and Frontlines page 3. Touring
