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.

Paul Bright’s Confessions Of A Justified Sinner

✭✭✭✭✩ Justified and modern:
The International Festival’s production of Paul Bright’s Confessions Of A Justified Sinner is a hugely enjoyable meditation on truth, reality, literature, loss and the transitory yet enduring nature of artistic creation.
