Penelope Corfield and her partner Tony Belton began in 2012 to review theatrical productions which they thought particularly noteworthy. It’s an excellent way to focus. They discuss their responses together; and take it in turns to write the review. The reviews here are by PJC. They listed chronologically under date of first production, with gaps in the numerical sequence to allow for further insertions.
