Lyceum

Glory on Earth

Glory on Earth

★★★☆☆ Accomplished:
Extreme care has been lavished on the Lyceum’s Glory on Earth. It has a clarity to its storytelling and performances, backed up by some excellent staging, but never engages the heart or mind as fully as it promises.

Charlie Sonata

Charlie Sonata

★★★☆☆ Emotionally messy:
Time, change, dependence and human frailty are explored with emotion in the world premiere of Charlie Sonata at the Lyceum.

A Number

★★★★☆ Human intelligence:
Philosophical questions that have puzzled us for centuries are given a contemporary yet timeless spin in A Number, presented by the Lyceum in partnership with the Edinburgh International Science Festival.

Hay Fever

Hay Fever

★★★☆☆ Too cool:
Solidly acted but only sporadically funny, the Lyceum and the Citizens Theatre co-production of Hay Fever is entirely serviceable but all too forgettable.

The Winter’s Tale

The Winter’s Tale

★★★☆☆ Layered:
Lucid and engaging, the Lyceum’s Scottish-set production of The Winter’s Tale has much to recommend it, even if it does not quite convince.

Picnic at Hanging Rock

Picnic at Hanging Rock

★★★☆☆ Uneasy:
Picnic at Hanging Rock, presented at the Lyceum by the Australian companies Malthouse and Black Swan, is a well-crafted production that is never quite as frightening as it wants to be.
