All About My Mother

All About My Mother

★★★☆☆ Ambitious:

Clever in its staging and ambitious in scope, the EGTG’s Scottish premiere of All About My Mother, at the Roxy to Saturday, provides plenty to satisfy but a certain amount of confusion along the way.

Casanova Dreaming

Casanova Dreaming

★★☆☆☆ Overly complex:

Arbery Production’s Casanova Dreaming at TheSpace on Niddry Street is a breathless dash through the 18th century that tries to cram enough material for several hours into 50 minutes.

The Importance of Being Earnest

The Importance of Being Earnest

★★★☆☆ Judicious:
There is a studied air to Edinburgh People’s Theatre’s production of The Importance of Being Earnest that pays dividends, but also brings disadvantages.

Wildest Dreams

Wildest Dreams

★★★★☆ Fascinating:
Intriguing, amusing and a little troubling, the Grads’ production of Alan Ayckbourn’s Wildest Dreams upstairs at the Assembly Roxy is extremely accomplished.

Much Ado About Nothing

✭✭✭✩✩ Mixed success:
Arkle’s Much Ado About Nothing at the Royal Scots Club overcomes a less than well thought-out central concept to deliver a solid, enjoyable production.
