Eight

Eight

★★★★☆ Powerful monologues:

There is a confidence and spirit to Eight, at the Bedlam, that makes for highly successful theatre.

Corydon Ovium

Corydon Ovium

★★★☆☆  Not baad:

Corydon Ovium, Nightmare Productions’ comedy horror anthology downstairs at the Newsroom, is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair that makes up in gleeful energy for what it lacks in polish.

The Tumbling Lassie & Fergus of Galloway

The Tumbling Lassie & Fergus of Galloway

★★★★☆ Jaunty:

Edinburgh Studio Opera renews its association with Alexander McCall Smith and Tom Cunningham with this double bill, marrying new work The Tumbling Lassie with 2013’s Fergus of Galloway.

Technicolor

Technicolor

★★★★☆ Extra-terrestrially cool:

Black Bat’s Technicolor is a freewheeling exercise in both nostalgia and modernity that is highly recommended.

The Steamie

The Steamie

★★★★☆ Strong bond:

Leitheatre make a solid and entertaining evening of it with their take on Tony Roper’s great Scottish comedy, The Steamie, which is at St Serf’s until Saturday.

Hecate

Hecate

★★☆☆☆ Fairly foul:

As befits a play so often performed and studied, Macbeth has been the object of many reworkings and extensions over the years. Unfortunately, for every Dunsinane there are ten less memorable efforts. The Little Shakespeare Company’s Hecate falls into the latter category.

You Remind Me Of You

You Remind Me Of You

★★★★☆ You’re welcome:

There is a fierce theatrical intelligence at work in Arkle’s production of You Remind Me Of You at the Royal Scots Club.

Laugh Out Loud (Cry Quietly)

Laugh Out Loud (Cry Quietly)

★★★☆☆ Fresh breeze:

Laugh Out Loud (Cry Quietly), by Arkle at the Royal Scots Club, is a sparky confection lacking profundity but full of energy.

The Front Page

The Front Page

★★★★☆ Extreme energy:

There is more nervous energy in Edinburg Theatre Arts’ The Front Page at St Ninian’s Hall than in five average Fringe productions, and the result is very pleasing.

A Fistful of Mondays

A Fistful of Mondays

★★★★☆ Yee-ha!

Low-key but satisfying, Saughtonhall Drama Group’s A Fistful of Mondays which has a limited run to Saturday is attractively humorous.
