A Requiem For Edward Snowden

A Requiem For Edward Snowden

✭✭✭✩✩ Mourning becomes electronica:
A Requiem For Edward Snowden, the ‘digital opera’ at Stockbridge Church, has an eerie contemporaneity, treating political concerns in a way that speaks more of sorrow than of anger.

No Exit?

✭✭✩✩✩ Closed in:
M and E Theatre’s No Exit? is a strangely diffuse production, with plenty of energy but not much cohesion.

Help Yourself

Help Yourself

✭✭✩✩✩ Mealy-mouthed:
Help Yourself, Foolproof Theatre’s play about injustice and self-reliance at home and abroad, has its heart in the right place but is strangely ineffectual.

Bakersfield Mist

Bakersfield Mist

✭✭✩✩✩ Bakersfield missed:
Despite a great deal of care and two capable actors, Bakersfield Mist at the Royal Scots Club from Arkle Theatre Company never really gets off the ground.

Much Ado About Nothing

Much Ado About Nothing

✭✭✭✩✩ Mixed success:
Arkle’s Much Ado About Nothing at the Royal Scots Club overcomes a less than well thought-out central concept to deliver a solid, enjoyable production.
