theatre, film & tv past and present 2001-2008 & 2013…
“The profession should be and is a kind of relay race – about information, opinions and passions being passed on.” — Alan Rickman, Theatregoer Magazine, November 2001
Welcome to the new Rogues & Vagabonds! In 2001, I founded Rogues & Vagabonds, a regularly updated site for anyone with a passion for Theatre. A treasure trove of fascinating and indispensable articles were published between 2001 and 2008, all of which I am steadily transferring to this blog. The idea behind the site was – and is — to bring the theatrical past alive and cast a fresh eye over the contemporary scene, untrammelled by the restrictions often in place with ‘accepted’ media outlets.
You will find quotes, interviews with actors, actresses, directors and playwrights, as well as considered and incisive reviews and features that discuss theatre from many different angles; sometimes those aspects are surprising, at other times fascinating or curious.
I have also started sharing contemporary articles from other theatre and film sources.
The primary focus is British Theatre, although there are inevitable overlaps with Theatre worldwide, as well as Film and Television.
When I ran the original Rogues & Vagabonds, I was helped by some wonderful freelance contributors of diverse origins and ages, experience and perspectives. To them, as always, I give my heartfelt thanks.
