Mary Queen of Scots got her Head Chopped Off

She Can’t Half Talk

She Can’t Half Talk

★★☆☆☆    Unconvincing lives:

She Can’t Half Talk, EUTC’s Fringe production at the Bedlam, is a varied set of stories that contains much of promise but fails to convince as a coherent whole.

White

White

★★★★☆ Layered:

Comic, brutal and certainly confrontational, the UK premiere of James Ijames’ White at St Cecelia’s Hall delivers a well-judged prod at the often unguarded underbelly of white liberal self-satisfaction.

Pippin

Pippin

★★★☆☆    Overambitious:

There is a great deal of vocal talent on show in the EUTC’s production of Pippin at the Bedlam. However, some ill-judged staging choices conspire against the production, resulting in a definite curate’s egg.

Jerusalem

Jerusalem

★★★★☆ Furious energy:

The EUTC’s production of Jez Butterworth’s celebrated Jerusalem at the Bedlam has so much drive and chutzpah that it is an undoubted success.

Cyprus Avenue

Cyprus Avenue

★★★★☆ Brutal:

Brutal to a point which is almost beyond comprehension, the EUTC production of Cyprus Avenue, at the Bedlam to Saturday, fools with laughter before stunning you to silence.

Eight

Eight

★★★★☆ Powerful monologues:

There is a confidence and spirit to Eight, at the Bedlam, that makes for highly successful theatre.
