Christmas Dinner

Christmas Dinner

★★★★☆   Touchingly funny

Christmas Dinner may be something of a stopgap as this year’s Lyceum show, but it proves a success in its own right. Amusing, energetic, and wearing its considerable profundity lightly, it should appeal to the widest possible audience.

Milk

Milk

★★☆☆☆ Disconnected:
The premiere of Ross Dunsmore’s Milk at the Traverse is well acted and carefully staged. However, it never overcomes an unsatisfactory construction.

Waves

Waves

★★★☆☆ Refreshing
A cheerful directness and generosity of spirit permeate Waves at the Old Lab in Summerhall. However, there is an underdeveloped feel at times that threatens to detract from its fresh and infectious atmosphere.

International Waters

International Waters

★★★☆☆ Choppy seas:
There are enough ideas in David Leddy’s International Waters for several plays. However, this particular one, while intelligent and energetic, does not always convince.
