Bold, fast-paced and verging on the hysterical at times, Saughtonhall Drama Group’s Ne’er The Twain is a tremendously enjoyable production.

The Fairmer Wants A Wife

✭✭✭✭✩ Warm and funny:
There is nothing remotely groundbreaking about EPT’s The Fairmer Wants A Wife at Mayfield Church. What is provided is a thoroughly enjoyable, very well presented piece of Scottish comedy.

✭✭✭✩✩ Ever-bubbling:
Couthie comedy is given full and adequate reign in the Edinburgh People’s Theatre fast-moving production of Ne’er The Twain – set in a tenement flat on the Leith-Edinburgh border in October 1919.
