The Blain Reaction is a blog created by Liam Blain, a theatre reviewer for A Younger Theatre, The British Theatre Guide and What’s Peen Seen, a  graduate of Drama and Theatre Studies at Royal Holloway, University in London and recipient of the 2014  Allen Wright Award’s  Special Commendation for Theatre Journalism at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

The blog’s main aim is to give up to date and reactions and responses to theatre up and down the United Kingdom. From Edinburgh (where Liam is from) to London (where he studies). There is no type of theatre out of bounds be it a musical, a play or simply a chair on stage for an hour and forty-five minutes. Please do comment and get in touch with any articles that interest you.

As well as reviews, any theatre related hilarity that is flung this way might also appear up here for all of you to enjoy.

If anyone has a show they would like Liam to attend please contact liamblain@outlook.com with the details.

Thank you and happy reading.
