Douglas Maxwell

I Can Go Anywhere

I Can Go Anywhere

★★☆☆☆  Uneven two-hander:

A good premise is overshadowed by a lumbering script in Douglas Maxwell’s exploration of identity and belonging, I Can Go Anywhere, at the Traverse Theatre as part of Edinburgh’s Christmas to 21 December.

Summer on Stage 2015

Summer on Stage 2015

Mancub: ✭✭✭✩✩ Complex
The Children: ✭✭✭✭✩ Stylish
Children are at the heart of both the drama and the performance of this year’s Summer on Stage double bill, but the Lyceum Youth Theatre are anything but childish in their delivery.

Yer Granny

Yer Granny

✭✭✭✩✩ Saucy:
Hugely – if inconsistently – funny, but lacking real dramatic impact, Yer Granny at the King’s is certainly crowd-pleasing but does not seem destined to linger long in the memory.

Review – A respectable Woman Takes to Vulgarity

Review – A respectable Woman Takes to Vulgarity

The relationship between language and power is woven right through Douglas Maxwell’s misleadingly simple script for a Play, a Pie and a Pint, at the Traverse theatre every lunchtime until Saturday.

Æ Review – Spring Awakening

Æ Review – Spring Awakening

★★★★☆    Brutal:

Grid Iron Theatre Company have joined forces with the Traverse theatre to create a brief, brutal and quite devastating new working of Frank Wedekind’s Spring Awakening.
