A classic viewing of all the Theatreland play houses by night. The authentic commentary, by Ben Shafik - a player himself - gives an authentic feel to the West End's theatres - and is backed by real music.
Next version will be more upbeat as, suggested, to celebrate Britannia's unbeatable heritage.
(Over 6000 viewings and all good reviews to date).

A note from the author

I took these pictures to show off London theatres as they are seen -most often - by theatre goers, at night.

Thanks to Ben Shafik for his lighthearted and informative commentary and Fionn O'Lochlainn for the original music.

Watch out for the new version with current liveries and the names of the theatres as they appear.



A play by Steven Hevey.

After a sell-out run at the Red Lion Theatre This play came to the West End.

That it's a first play or a debut play are secondary to the fact that it is a very GOOD play. Most reviewers couldn't get over the fact that the stars were in a popular soap before and said little about the play. The Stage gave it a great review that says it.....

"When a writer...    ... comes up with something that is well-structured, with well-drawn characters, an engrossing plot and naturalistic dialogue that hides polemic when needs be, then we should all head off to the places listed above and pay homage at their doors"
Jeremy Austin

True-to-Brit humour, it's a comedy that incorporates war, terrorist attack, paranoia, suicide bombings and manages intensity and politics with a certain finesse - if that's the right word for the characters who typify the lowly workingman of London who are dumbed down with too much television, media, lager, drugs and opinions to notice what's happening in real life – until they are woken with a shock on the 7th of July 2005. That was the day that brought all of the above to central London and to their lives in particular.

The Story

Three British blokes embark on their habitual night of drinking and telly at their male flatshare. As nonchalant as they are about the bombing, the evening's events lead to a situation that draws them in to experience an impassioned scenario in which they are ill equipped to respond sensibly. One of the lads is an ex soldier who is triggered through paranoia to induce stress all round.

The plot engrosses the characters and the audience in a gripping set of consequences to their actions and blatant inaction.

The audience did not want to be late back to their seats after the intermission. Although the funny dialogue causes laughter – it also stimulates thought. This is one of the better plays in the West End and should not be missed.
