Second Honeymoon

Second Honeymoon

★★★★☆    Pacy nostalgia:

Second Honeymoon at Mayfield Salisbury Church extends Edinburgh People’s Theatre’s record-breaking Fringe run with some style. Unashamedly nostalgic and with bags of comic bravado, it purrs like a well-oiled machine.

The Cemetery Club

★★★★☆ Gravely good:

EPT’s windy bottom

Has beans not has-beens in Panto land:
