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.

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.

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.
