PPP: Break My Windows

PPP: Break My Windows

★★★☆☆ Vigorous

Having your heart in the right place does not always lead to compelling drama. The political messages in Break My Windows, the latest Play, Pie and a Pint from Oran Mor at the Traverse, may be muddled, but there is a lively comic capability on display.

The uneasy relationship between politics and theatre is laid comically bare in James Ley’s Sally, the first in the new run of A Play, A Pie & A Pint from Oran Mor at the Traverse.

Birdboy

Birdboy

★★★★☆ Iridescent dance

Birdboy, at the Traverse as part of Imaginate for just three days, sets out as hilarious a piece of physical dance theatre as you might want. But by its end, it has caught its audience with an altogether more thoughtful edge.

My Doric Diary

My Doric Diary

★★★☆☆ Affa fine

A breezy, charming musical tale of family, time travel and the cultural cringe, the final offering in this season of A Play, A Pie and A Pint at the Traverse is My Doric Diary by Aye Tunes! (Katie Barnett and Jamie Siggens).

PPP: Daniel Getting Married

PPP: Daniel Getting Married

★★★☆☆ Fragmentary

Daniel Getting Married, the latest Play, Pie and a Pint from Oran Mor at the Traverse, goes ahead in extremely trying circumstances. The result is far more coherent than anyone has any right to expect.

PPP: Milkshake

PPP: Milkshake

★★★☆☆ Claustrophobic

The subject matter of Milkshake by Rob Drummond, the latest offering at the Traverse from Oran Mor’s Play, Pie and a Pint, is intriguingly topical. Despite being acted with real conviction, however, it never quite reaches the heights it promises.

PPP: I’m Dissolving My Love In A Bath Of Acid

★★★☆☆ Absurd

Oozing with comic brio, I’m Dissolving My Love In A Bath Of Acid at the Traverse is a wonderfully performed and energetic if ultimately superficial piece.

★★★☆☆ Poignant performances

There is much to recommend in Dani Heron’s Ten Things To Do Before You Die, the latest Play, Pie and a Pint at the Traverse. Both humorous and emotional, the production manages to overcome drawbacks in its script.
