The Steamie

The Steamie

★★★★☆ Strong bond:

Leitheatre make a solid and entertaining evening of it with their take on Tony Roper’s great Scottish comedy, The Steamie, which is at St Serf’s until Saturday.

The Crucible

The Crucible

★★☆☆☆ Half-baked:

Leitheatre has made a bold and audacious stroke in its production of The Crucible, using a contemporary setting for Arthur Miller’s great allegory for the anti-communist hysteria in 1950s America.

Ane Servant o’ Twa Maisters

Ane Servant o’ Twa Maisters

✭✭✭✭✩ Gloriously glaikit:
There’s huff, puff and havering a-plenty in Leitheatre’s take on Ane Servant o’ Twa Maisters Victor Carin’s adaptation and translation into Scots of Galdini’s classic farce.

Paras over the Barras

Paras over the Barras

✭✭✩✩✩ Sketchy comedy
Delivering the toe-curling one-liners with a relatively straight face, Leitheatre’s reprise of Paras over the Barras is sketch show comedy shot through with nostalgia for the WW2 spirit.

Review – Whose Life Is It Anyway?

Review – Whose Life Is It Anyway?

★★☆☆☆

SURPRISINGLY hilarious in its opening scenes, Leitheatre’s take on Brain Clark’s right-to-die drama succeeds in finding an emotional core, but is still swamped by dialogue which spends too long rehearsing the arguments.
