I had a lot of great trips to the theatre this year and started by MRes in playwriting so plays have kinda been on my mind a lot, these are just the top picks of things I really liked.
Every Brilliant Thing by Duncan Macmillan (Machynlleth Comedy Festival)
Plastic Figurines by Ella Carmen Greenhill (Liverpool Playhouse Studio)
The Rolling Stone by Chris Urch (Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester)
Everyman by Carol Ann Duffy (National theatre, London...well technically I saw it a cinema screen in Didsbury, shouldn't that count as a film? I hear you ask...No, it's a theatre show being live streamed, we don't all live in London)
The Hangman by Martin McDonagh (Wyndham Theatre, London)
I probably saw more films at the cinema this year than I ever have before in one year this is what I liked best
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
TV was a bit so so this year with these exceptions.
OK so they may not have all been published this year but this is the year I read them so?
So you've been public shamed by Jon Ronson
The Sleeper and the spindle by Neil Gaiman illustrated by Chris Riddell
How to build a girl by Caitlin Moran
Also this doesn't have it's own category but it's pretty ruddy awesome. My Girlfriend baked this Millennium Falcon Ginger Bread to celebrate the day of my birth.
And remember years are just a man made construct to measure the passing of eternity... I mean happy New Year.
Yeah, yeah I know it's late but I've been busy.
