Danny 306 + Me 4eva

Danny 306 + Me 4eva

★★★☆☆    Comic highs:
Capturing much of the whimsy and regret of David Greig’s 1999 play for young people, the younger of the Lyceum’s Summer on Stage companies make a descent fist of Danny 306 + Me 4eva.

Glory on Earth

Glory on Earth

★★★☆☆ Accomplished:
Extreme care has been lavished on the Lyceum’s Glory on Earth. It has a clarity to its storytelling and performances, backed up by some excellent staging, but never engages the heart or mind as fully as it promises.

The script’s the thing at the Edinburgh International Book Festival
