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.

The Collector

★★☆☆☆ Puzzling:
Despite being well acted and staged with commitment, Arkle’s The Collector at the Royal Scots Club has only limited emotional impact.

The Game’s Afoot

The Game’s Afoot

✭✭✭✩✩ Elementary but entertaining:
There is solid, well-crafted entertainment in The Edinburgh Makars’ production of The Game’s Afoot or Holmes For The Holidays. Genuine thrills and spills are in short supply, but great pains have been taken to make a rewarding whole.

Relatively Speaking

Relatively Speaking

✭✭✭✩✩ Relatively successful
Slick, humorous and effective, the Edinburgh Makars’ production of Alan Ayckbourn’s Relatively Speaking can be counted as a success even if it never quite manages to locate the darker streak that characterises his work.

The Astronaut’s Chair – Review

✭✭✭✩✩ Breathing thin air

Stepping out over the edge of the atmosphere into space might be a dream for most, but it is one which high-flying aviator Renee Coburg feels is already within her grasp.
