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.

Lost At Sea

Lost At Sea

★★★★☆ Poignant:

Perth Theatre’s production of Lost At Sea, at the King’s until Wednesday, is emotional, humane and beautifully staged.

Ma, Pa and the Little Mouths

Ma, Pa and the Little Mouths

★★★★☆ Strange energy:

Reality is stretched to great effect in Ma, Pa and the Little Mouths at the Traverse. The Tron Theatre Company’s production in association with the National Theatre of Scotland is bleakly comic and thoroughly unpredictable.

Lanark

Lanark

✭✭✭✭✩ The unstageable, staged:
A world of hugely entertaining possibilities is on display in Lanark. The co-production between the Citizens Theatre and the International Festival has all of the excitement and weight of a capital-letter Theatre Event.

Review – Calum’s Road

Review – Calum’s Road

Fine, slow-paced energy, permeates this co-production between the National Theatre of Scotland and Gerry Mulgrew’s Communicado that tells of a man’s solitary and dogged fight against bureaucracy as he makes the choice between being defeated and being defiant.
