Islander

Islander

★★★★☆  Etherial:

Mystical in content and audacious in its presentation, Islander is a musical for just two performers which is thought-provoking and intriguing in equal measure.

Heaven Burns

Heaven Burns

★★★☆☆  Fiery history:

Heaven Burns, Jen McGregor’s exploration of some of the murkier corners of Scottish history at the Assembly Roxy, has a dark and spooky feel. Its power is not always sustained, but it nevertheless has considerable impact.

The Pride

The Pride

★★★☆☆ Involving:

The Pride, the debut production by Different Works at the Assembly Roxy, is very good at showing how the repressive urge for conformity destroys everyone, not just those who are seen as ‘different’.

Oedipus & Hands Across the Sea

Oedipus & Hands Across the Sea

★★★★☆   Double Dose:

Congratulations to which ever member of the Edinburgh Makars thought of staging Sophocles’ bloody Oedipus in a seemingly incongruous double bill with a Noel Coward one-act farce. Truth is, the incongruity works.
