Searching for the best shows to see across the UK? Then look no further!Lyn Gardner’s “Theatre Blog”from the Guardian gives you the best tips and recommendations on what to see not just from London, but all across the UK.

There are various theatre productions and shows performed every week, and if you are lost for what to watch, this blog is a good place to start. You can also read the comments section to see what other readers’ think of the plays suggested; reviews and recommendations they have made on the latest productions they have seen. Here are a few of the latest recommendations from the Theatre Blog.

This week’s recommendations have included the Arches Behaviour Festival in Scotland, featuring Kieran Hurley’s latest show, Rantin, which draws on storytelling and the Scottish folk tradition to explore identity and nationhood. In Birmingham, a brilliant rice installation of All the People in the World is being held at Stan’s Cafe. The installation includes three tonnes of rice – representing 1.5 billion people – which will be used to animate statistics around the World. Finally topics of love, infidelity and sex are under the microscope in David Leveaux’s revival of Peter Nichols’ Passion Play at the Richmond Theatre, London. The play features the talents of Zoe Wanamaker and Samantha Bond, and has previously won the Evening Standard Award for Best Play.
