My Doric Diary

★★★☆☆ Affa fine

A breezy, charming musical tale of family, time travel and the cultural cringe, the final offering in this season of A Play, A Pie and A Pint at the Traverse is My Doric Diary by Aye Tunes! (Katie Barnett and Jamie Siggens).

PPP: A New Life (A Mini Musical)

★★★☆☆ Emotional

A New Life (A Mini Musical) at the Traverse every lunchtime this week is certainly not ‘mini’ in its emotional scope or its ambition.

PPP: The Signalman

★★★★★  Riveting

There is a touch of horror to The Signalman, in which playwright Peter Arnott views the Tay Bridge disaster from the post of signalman Thomas Barclay, on duty at the south end of the bridge on the evening of Sunday December 28, 1879.

★★★★☆    Clever comedy:

Upbeat and often very funny indeed, Rachel’s Cousins, this week’s A Play, A Pie and A Pint lunchtime theatre at the Traverse, doesn’t allow the prospect of cancer to get in its way.
