Endgame

Endgame

★★☆☆☆ Undercooked:
Underpowered and oddly hesitant, EUTC’s production of Endgame has flashes of inspiration but fails to convince.

The Pillowman

The Pillowman

★★★☆☆ Ambitious:
Spirited and clever, EUTC’s production of Martin McDonagh’s The Pillowman has all the requisite cartoon violence, but in the end lacks the necessary punch.

The Crucible

The Crucible

★★★☆☆ Intimate:
The passion and brutality at the heart of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible are brought out in an intense production at the Bedlam which strives just a bit too hard for authenticity.

Cagebirds

Cagebirds

★★★★☆ Unsettling introspection:
Edinburgh University Theatre Company find a birds eye view straight into the heart of captivity in Cagebirds: a quirky, thoughtful little play that positively flies by, or not as the case may be.

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

There is much to admire in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? at the Bedlam. Accomplished performances of challenging roles and well thought-out direction make for a successful production.

Equus

Equus

★★★★☆ Darkly iconic:
Stark yet fully rounded, the EUTC’s production of Equus, at the Bedlam to Saturday, gets right to the nub of Peter Shaefer’s script and delivers four square on the drama.

Journey’s End

Journey’s End

✭✭✭✩✩ Travelling light:
Cruel and deceptively simple, R.C. Sherriff’s play set in the trenches of WW1 remains one of the great descriptions of what happens to humanity when it goes to war.

Yellow Moon – Review

✭✭✭✭✩ Thunderstruck

The EUTC give a thunderous showing of David Greig’s Yellow Moon at the Bedlam, with a production that flows seamlessly through Greig’s dark, poetic, script.
