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.

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.

Review – Love and Friendship

Review – Love and Friendship

✭✭✭✩✩ Delicious trifle

Brimming with overplayed emotions and inappropriate attitudes, Laura Witz’ adaptation of Jane Austen’s early epistolary novel – Love and Freindship – is an utter treat.

Review – Scooby Panto and the Night of the Nutcracker! In 2D!

✭✭✭✩✩ Brazenly hazy:
Gosh, golly and crypes, Santa Claus has been kidnapped and not only have his dastardly kidnappers killed Scrappy Doo, but they have cancelled Christmas too!
