SKANK

SKANK

★★★★☆ Clever

SKANK at the Pleasance Courtyard is a thoroughly successful and engaging one-woman show that is smart, funny and unexpectedly touching.

Bytesize Theatre

Bytesize Theatre

★★★☆☆ Welcome

The lack of time to plan for live theatre at this year’s Fringe has not deterred the Edinburgh Graduate Theatre Group. Bytesize Theatre is a collection of three new plays presented on the online Fringe Player. The three pieces are not all equally impressive, but each has intriguing elements.

Afterparty

Afterparty

★★★★☆ Lairy

Packed with expletives and off-colour observations, Afterparty from New Celts Productions and F-Bomb Theatre at the theSpace’s Triplex theatre pulls no punches in its humorous but bitter-sweet story set in small town Scotland.

Playing With Books – Sea State

Theatre returns to the Book Festival

Playing With Books, the collaboration between the Book Festival and the Lyceum, has returned in the Book Festival’s new ‘hybrid’ format. This means a staging with both a limited, distanced, in-person audience at the College of Art, with online viewers, and which is later available on demand (albeit, in this case, for a very limited time).

Catching Up

Catching Up

★★☆☆☆ Shapeless

There is an amorphous feel to Theatre Paradok’s Catching Up at Symposium Hall, as if what we are seeing has had one draft too few – or, more likely, several drafts too many.

Moonlight On Leith

Moonlight On Leith

★★★☆☆ Celebratory

Combining the quotidian and the lyrical, New Celts and REDCAP Theatre’s Moonlight On Leith at theSpace Triplex provides a touching portrait of assorted Leithers.

Radio 69

Radio 69

★★★☆☆ Frothy

There is enough liveliness and verve in Radio 69, presented by the Counterminers at theSpace at Symposium Hall, for several Fringe shows. However, a corresponding attention to detail is not always present.
