Exciting news! Theatreland, a collection of some of the best Haiku Review poems, is now at the printers!
It's available for pre-order from Indigo Dreams and Amazon




The cover image is a beautiful shot of Orlando at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester (photo credit: Jonathan Keenan Photography). It was so hard choosing just one of the shows featured in the book to go on the cover - I love them all! - but this one I think really conjures up something of the magic of theatre. 

One of the loveliest parts of preparing the collection was receiving some amazing testimonials. Here are a few that I particularly treasure...

Having joyfully followed #HaikuReview on Twitter I am delighted to read these thoughtful, witty and incisive poems in a volume. In this unique meeting of poetry and theatre, Sophie Reynolds has brought her brilliant skill and talent to offer intelligent and passionate insights into some of our most thrilling recent theatre productions. 
Vicky Featherstone, Artistic Director, Royal Court Theatre
Sophie Reynolds captures something of the fleeting experience of watching theatre - crystalizing character or capturing an atmosphere with evocative economy. These poems are miniature celebrations of the magic and mystery of that ephemeral art form ... impressionistic gems that serve as happy reminders of – or introductions to – some of the best plays to grace British stages in recent years. 
Holly Williams, Arts journalist 

This fresh, evocative collection of poems by Sophie Reynolds is a must-buy for every theatre lover, actor and director. It reveals to the reader the plays from the outside looking in, as well as the theatre from the inside looking out.
Lucinda Hawksley, Author
