Still

Still

★★★☆☆ Tender

Still at the Traverse is in many ways a tough watch, with themes of death and loss offset by excellent performances and perceptive writing.

The Macbeths

★★★★☆  Bloody good

The Macbeths, the Citizens’ concentrated revision of Macbeth, supplies a charge that is so often missing in versions of the play.

Gut

Gut

★★★☆☆   Gut-wrenching:

There are moments in Gut – presented by the Traverse in association with the National Theatre of Scotland – where it is difficult to breathe, such is the power of Frances Poet’s psychological thriller. However, there are also stretches which are far less compelling, or even entirely convincing.
