Plaza Suite

Plaza Suite

★★★☆☆ Erratic comedy:

The Edinburgh Makars’ production of Neil Simon’s Plaza Suite has considerable comic appeal, even if it takes some time to materialise.

Oedipus & Hands Across the Sea

Oedipus & Hands Across the Sea

★★★★☆   Double Dose:

Congratulations to which ever member of the Edinburgh Makars thought of staging Sophocles’ bloody Oedipus in a seemingly incongruous double bill with a Noel Coward one-act farce. Truth is, the incongruity works.

Neighbourhood Watch

Neighbourhood Watch

★★★☆☆  Stately:
There is a comic and political bite to the Edinburgh Makars’ Neighbourhood Watch that gives it as much impact as other Alan Ayckbourn productions of twice the length and many times the budget.

Good Things

Good Things

★★★☆☆ Heartfelt:
There are plenty of Good Things in the Makars’ production of Liz Lochhead’s play of that name, in a production that is solid if not spectacular.
