Heir Heads

Heir Heads

★★★☆☆    Considerable zip:

Heir Heads, Pretty Knickers Productions’ comedy at theSpace on North Bridge, has a cacklingly amoral glee that gives it some force.

Rowan Rheingans: Dispatches on the Red Dress

★★★★☆    Quietly compelling:

Dispatches on the Red Dress by Rowan Rheingans at the Storytelling Centre, is one of the increasing number of productions coming from the folk scene that meld theatre, storytelling and music; it can certainly hold its head up with the best of those.

Krapp’s Last Tape

Krapp’s Last Tape

★★★★☆  Authentic Krapp:

Wistful and careful, Arkle’s production of Krapp’s Last Tape brings out the humanity in Beckett’s masterpiece. Often seen as a forbidding play, there is nothing remotely inaccessible about this.

She Can’t Half Talk

She Can’t Half Talk

★★☆☆☆    Unconvincing lives:

She Can’t Half Talk, EUTC’s Fringe production at the Bedlam, is a varied set of stories that contains much of promise but fails to convince as a coherent whole.
