Highlights (and Lowlights) From a Year as Theatre Editor

by / 15/10/07 / No Comments

It’s been a funny old year of theatre. Nearing the end of six months in London, I started writing my theatre copy from an internet café in Prague, hurriedly looking up the Fringe website to see what to recommend. I caught the tail end of the Fringe Festival, loving the return season of Dean Hewison’s [...]

Hi! I’m Matthew, otherwise known as Becci. Yeah, Becci’s a dude. No biggie. I’m a third year law, history and political science student. Real humanist, no? A Salient sub-editor since late last year, I took on the Ask Becci column when the real Becci stopped sending columns in. Share on Facebook+1 on Google+Post to TumblrTweet [...]

Idiot’s guide to summer

It’s been a long road getting you to this point. I finally feel like I can let you go, like a mother duck watching her ducklings float away to become a Cantonese dinner. It started with such humble beginnings. You learnt the art of the two minute noodles and how to pass your papers. Under [...]

Some people hate Black Market Art’s Darian Wood for his loud mouth, some hate him for his hip-hop posing, and some hate him for setting back the cause of white men fighting for their right to wear dumb hats by twenty years. But most people just hate him because he’s Darian Wood, and he likes [...]

I’m pulling this column together less than two hours after the All Blacks (in their Earl Grey strip) bid au revoir to the 2007 Rugby World Cup. My fingers are busy flicking from message board to message board; my ears are tensing up at the crackles and spits emanating from Radio Sport; my mind is [...]

Well, here we are – the end of term and my final piece of writing for Salient for the year (Thank God). I’ll confess I’m not someone who enjoys sitting down and writing a column every week, and I have tried to fob it off, but not with the best success. So it’s disorientation time [...]
