The Last Witch

The Last Witch

★★★★☆ Hard as rock:

There is a visceral compulsion to Pitlochry Festival Theatre and Firebrand’s The Last Witch at the Traverse. While apparently telling of a disappeared world, its evocations of fears, suspicions and power imbalances are worryingly contemporary.

The Last Bordello

The Last Bordello

★★★★☆   Sharp:

There is nothing straightforward about David Leddy’s The Last Bordello for his Fire Exit company, which is at the Traverse to Saturday.

Book Festival Round-up

Book Festival Round-up

The view from Charlotte Square:
The Book Festival continues to explore the interface between literature and performance in a way that is refreshing and risk-taking. If it does not always come off, that is certainly a price worth paying.

PPP: Mischief

PPP: Mischief

★★★★☆ Substantial:
There is a real emotional heft to Mischief, the latest Play, Pie and a Pint production at the Traverse, aided by impressive performances and noteworthy direction.
