Daphne Oram’s Wonderful World of Sound

★★★★☆ Engaging:
There is a freshness and infectious enthusiasm to Daphne Oram’s Wonderful World of Sound. This, allied to a magnetic central performance, overcomes oddities in the script and staging to create a thoroughly pleasing whole.

My Country – A Work in Progress

★☆☆☆☆ Limp:
My Country – A Work In Progress, the National Theatre of Great Britain’s touring response to the Brexit vote, may very well have its heart in the right place.

PPP: His Final Bow

PPP: His Final Bow

★★★★☆ Bonne bouche:
Theatre is all about stories and performance, but when the two turn in on themselves, things get messy and out of control – as His Final Bow, this week’s lunchtime theatre at the Traverse shows.

PPP: Channelling Jabez

PPP: Channelling Jabez

★★★☆☆ Frothy:
Channelling Jabez, the latest A Play, A Pie and A Pint production at the Traverse, is a charmingly inconsequential story that is cleverly staged and strangely attractive.

Girl in the Machine

Girl in the Machine

★★★☆☆ Prophetic:
The Traverse Theatre’s production of Girl in the Machine is a quick march through our potential future towards a technology-induced apocalypse.

PPP: Ding-Dong (A Bit of a Farce)

★★☆☆☆ Slight
The first offering in the new series of A Play, A Pie and A Pint at the Traverse, has its heart in the right place and provides some laughs, but ultimately fails to convince either as a farce or as a more conventional comedy.

Offside, Futures Theatre’s touring production at the Traverse, is a heartfelt, energetic and ultimately uplifting play about women’s football that explores wider issues with humour and intelligence.
