PULSE FESTIVAL: EUROHOUSE – New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich

Nasi Voutsas and Bertrand Lesca in Eurohouse

  Writers and Performers: Nasi Voutsas and Bertrand Lesca Reviewer: Glen Pearce There’s something quietly disconcerting about Nasi Voutsas and Bertrand Lesca's Eurohouse.

BRIGHTON FRINGE: Brawn – The Warren Studio 3

Writer: Christopher Wollaton Director: Richard Weston Reviewer: Richard Maguire This play, Brawn, has the perfect body; it’s lean, clean and cut, ripped and shredded.
