Bedlam

She Can’t Half Talk

She Can’t Half Talk

★★☆☆☆    Unconvincing lives:

She Can’t Half Talk, EUTC’s Fringe production at the Bedlam, is a varied set of stories that contains much of promise but fails to convince as a coherent whole.

Going Slightly Mad

Going Slightly Mad

★★★★☆   Fast paced:
Young critics scheme review
Going Slightly Mad by Big Mind Theatre at the Bedlam for the first two weeks of the fringe has a storyline that touches on mental health.

Pippin

Pippin

★★★☆☆    Overambitious:

There is a great deal of vocal talent on show in the EUTC’s production of Pippin at the Bedlam. However, some ill-judged staging choices conspire against the production, resulting in a definite curate’s egg.

A View From The Bridge

A View From The Bridge

★★★☆☆ Well told:

A View from the Bridge, Arthur Miller’s great tragedy of loyalty and miss-placed love in the tenements of the waterfront slums of 1950s New York is given a solid production from the EUTC at Bedlam this week.

Sugar And Salt

Sugar And Salt

★★☆☆☆   Chalk and cheese:
In Sugar and Salt, EUTC’s production at the Bedlam, writer/director Louisa Doyle displays a keen ear for dialogue and a facility with words. However, in the end, the result is never truly cohesive.

Science Festival Theatre

Science Festival Theatre

Theatre puts Science in the Spotlight:
With more performance than in any year since it was set up in 1989, the 2017 Edinburgh International Science Festival, running from 1 to 16 April, has the makings of a feast of theatre for adults and children alike.

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

★★★☆☆ Seen in preview:
Tense, Byzantine and thoroughly hilarious the EUTC’s production of Tom Stoppard’s breakthrough play Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, at the Bedlam to Saturday, is a properly entertaining affair.

The Diary of Anne Frank

The Diary of Anne Frank

★★★★☆ All too real:
Well performed, well directed and extremely affecting, EUTC’s Diary of Anne Frank at the Bedlam is a thoroughly timely production.

Frost/Nixon

Frost/Nixon

★★★☆☆ Intelligent:
Clever and ambitious, EUTC’s Frost/Nixon at the Bedlam is uneven in execution. Peter Morgan’s play – later a successful film – features a series of celebrated TV interviews between David Frost and disgraced US president Richard Nixon
