The Last Bordello

The Last Bordello

★★★★☆   Sharp:

There is nothing straightforward about David Leddy’s The Last Bordello for his Fire Exit company, which is at the Traverse to Saturday.

How to Disappear

How to Disappear

★★★☆☆ Troubling comedy:

Morna Pearson’s new play How to Disappear, which is this year’s ‘alternative’ Traverse Christmas entertainment, definitely has its heart in the right place.

Velvet Evening Seance

Velvet Evening Seance

★★★★☆    Mesmerising:
High production values and a compelling narrative make Ross MacKay and Suzie Miller’s atmospheric Victorian mystery, Velvet Evening Séance, a suitably haunting experience.

Out of This World

Out of This World

★★★☆☆ Thrilling spectacle:
Visually stunning yet lacking in substance, Out of This World at the Festival Theatre is an exhilarating fusion of theatre and film that doesn’t quite deliver.

The Broons

The Broons

★★★★☆ Cheery:
Loud, hugely enjoyable and instantly recognisable, The Broons, playing the King’s to Saturday, is every bit as much fun as you would hope.

International Waters

International Waters

★★★☆☆ Choppy seas:
There are enough ideas in David Leddy’s International Waters for several plays. However, this particular one, while intelligent and energetic, does not always convince.
