The Crucible

The Crucible

★★☆☆☆ Half-baked:

Leitheatre has made a bold and audacious stroke in its production of The Crucible, using a contemporary setting for Arthur Miller’s great allegory for the anti-communist hysteria in 1950s America.

Moonlight and Magnolias

Moonlight and Magnolias

★★★☆☆ Intriguing:
Race, politics and melodrama battle it out with pure farce in Leitheatre’s take on Moonlight and Magnolias, the story behind the making of Gone with the Wind.

Dolly West’s Kitchen

Dolly West’s Kitchen

★★★★★ Feisty fighting:
Dolly West’s Kitchen tells the tale of war: war between countries, war within families and the personal wars everyone fights. Leitheatre’s production at the Studio is feisty, fun and it certainly grips and entertains.

Men Should Weep

Men Should Weep

✭✭✭✭✩ Moving:
A fusion of high drama and earthiness, executed with precision and real emotion, Leitheatre’s Men Should Weep at the Church Hill Theatre is thoroughly satisfying.
