It’s a Wonderful Life

★★★☆☆  Half-life:

Animals

Animals

★★★★☆ Quirky:

Gentle as the velvet of a puppy’s ear, yet unafraid to take a deadpan gawp at a recently demised goldfish, Animals, Greg Sinclair’s examination of childhood tales of animals is a constant revelation of delight and surprise.

In this reverent, haunting and heartfelt production of Arandora Star at the Scottish Storytelling Centre to Saturday, Theatre Objectiv both condemns and exonerates in their efforts to give a voice to an oft-forgotten past.

Is This a Dagger? The Story of Macbeth

Is This a Dagger? The Story of Macbeth

★★★★☆    Scary and funny:
Is this is a Dagger? is a one-man show by Andy Cannon and is a version of Macbeth. It is at the Storytelling Centre until this weekend. It’s definitely for over-eights, or maybe over-nines.
