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.

Good Things

Good Things

★★★☆☆ Heartfelt:
There are plenty of Good Things in the Makars’ production of Liz Lochhead’s play of that name, in a production that is solid if not spectacular.

A Touch of Danger

A Touch of Danger

✭✭✭✩✩ Satisfying thriller:
Short on genuine thrills but consistently enjoyable, the Edinburgh Makars’ production of Francis Durbridge’s A Touch of Danger is a somewhat contrived thriller made more interesting by considered performances.

Review – My Three Angels

Review – My Three Angels

Slight and somewhat worthy, Sam and Bella Spewack’s 1950s comedy is given a muted but entertaining production by the Edinburgh Makars at the St Bride’s Centre this week.
