The Front Page

The Front Page

★★★★☆ Extreme energy:

There is more nervous energy in Edinburg Theatre Arts’ The Front Page at St Ninian’s Hall than in five average Fringe productions, and the result is very pleasing.

Moon over Buffalo

Moon over Buffalo

★★★☆☆   Comic capers:

A strong sense of purpose and plenty of pace ensure that Edinburgh Theatre Arts’ production of Moon Over Buffalo at St Ninian’s Church Hall is farcical for all the right reasons.

Improbable Fiction

Improbable Fiction

★★★★☆  Varieties of fun:
Edinburgh Theatre Arts are not the only group presenting Alan Ayckbourn this year. While other productions may be more high-profile, it is unlikely they will be much more fun than this production of Improbable Fiction at St Ninian’s.

Enron

Enron

★★★☆☆ Ambitious:
Hugely ambitious, Edinburgh Theatre Arts’ production of Lucy Prebble’s Enron at St Ninian’s is uneven but always intriguing, and gets a lot right.

Tartuffe

Tartuffe

✭✭✭✭✩ Timelessly funny:
Energetic, well drilled and mining a rich seam of comedy, Edinburgh Theatre Arts’ production of Tartuffe is cleverly staged and particularly enjoyable.

Writer’s Block

Writer’s Block

✭✭✭✩✩ I’ll Take This Manhattan
Riverside Drive and Old Saybrook are packed with typically over-educated and over-analytical characters in this Woody Allen double bill, staged with great comedic effect by Edinburgh Theatre Arts.
