Mack and Mabel, Inside Out, Life in Squares, An Account of the Great Auk, Alice Anderson

Mack + Mabel in Chichester, Pixar's Inside Out, Life in Squares on BBC2, Jessie Greengrass's An Account of the Great Auk, Alice Anderson at The Wellcome Collection.

There's a revival of Mack + Mabel, starring Michael Ball at the Festival Theatre in Chichester. By the team behind Hello Dolly, it's a tale of the silent movie era as it began to fall apart. A flop on Broadway in 1974, how does the new production fare?
Inside Out is the latest Pixar film. Set inside the head of an 11 year old girl some reviewer have praised it as the best children's film ever; will our reviewers agree?
Life in Squares on BBC2, is a drama about the glamorous, bohemian world of the Bloomsbury Set and their complicated intertwining love lives and careers.
Jessie Greengrass's debut work is a collection of short stories "An Account of the Decline of Great Auk, According to One Who Saw It". Is it a promising start?
The Wellcome Collection in London has an exhibition by Alice Anderson - winding copper wire around everyday objects; does this process imbue them with a different significance?
