The Duchess [of Malfi]

The Duchess [of Malfi]

★★★★☆  Necessarily nightmarish:

The blood-soaked events of The Duchess [of Malfi], a co-production between the Lyceum and the Citizens Theatre, are almost unwatchably intense at times. As a depiction of timeless and timely considerations, however, this production is hard to beat.

The Last Witch

The Last Witch

★★★★☆ Hard as rock:

There is a visceral compulsion to Pitlochry Festival Theatre and Firebrand’s The Last Witch at the Traverse. While apparently telling of a disappeared world, its evocations of fears, suspicions and power imbalances are worryingly contemporary.
