Bytesize Theatre

★★★☆☆ Welcome

The lack of time to plan for live theatre at this year’s Fringe has not deterred the Edinburgh Graduate Theatre Group. Bytesize Theatre is a collection of three new plays presented on the online Fringe Player. The three pieces are not all equally impressive, but each has intriguing elements.

The Taming of the Shrew

The Taming of the Shrew

★★★☆☆ Uneven updating:

Arkle’s take on The Taming of the Shrew is a largely successful attempt to make relevant one of Shakespeare’s plays that is most troubling to modern audiences.

The Witch of Edmonton

The Witch of Edmonton

★★☆☆☆ Tragically complex:
Based on a Jacobean play written by William Rowley, Thomas Dekker and John Ford in 1621, the Edinburgh Graduate Theatre Group’s production of The Witch of Edmonton is a curious and intense tragi-comedy that confuses as much as it entertains.

Weekend Breaks

Weekend Breaks

✭✭✭✩✩ Carefully honed
Arkle Theatre Company’s accomplished production of John Godber’s Weekend Breaks probably gives more care and attention to the material than it deserves.
