The Venetian Twins

The Venetian Twins

★★★★☆ Finest farce

Two years after they were meant to be bringing The Venetian Twins to Hill Street Theatre, Arkle Theatre Company’s production of Tony Cowie’s adaptation of the play finally made it to the theatre on Wednesday night. It was well worth the wait.

The Merry Wives of Windsor/Holyrood

The Merry Wives of Windsor/Holyrood

★★★☆☆ Shakespeare transported:

Let’s get one thing straight right away, EGTG’s show at the Royal Scots Club is not an expose of the fun and frolics of the female members of the Scottish parliament.

Skirt

Skirt

★★★★☆   Challenging stereotypes:

Can women really have it all? is the question on everyone’s minds in Skirt, Claire Wood’s thought-provoking play for the Edinburgh Graduate Theatre Company at the Royal Scots Club.

Titus Andronicus

Titus Andronicus

✭✭✭✩✩ There will be blood:
Bloody, nasty and noisy, the Grads’s production of Titus Andronicus at the Assembly Roxy has all of the ingredients of a memorable shocker but it is let down by some confused moments and a surprising politeness.

Festen

Festen

✭✭✭✭✩ Dark matters:
There is a fierce intensity to the Grads’ Festen at Adam House, in a consistently strong production that crackles with energy.

August: Osage County

August: Osage County

★★★☆☆ Brave attempt

Some excellent performances and high production values give The Grads’ production of August: Osage County interest and a degree of merit, but overall it can only be seen as a qualified success.

Review – Julius Caesar

Review – Julius Caesar

Thought-provoking and challenging, Edinburgh Graduate Theatre Group’s Julius Caesar is an intriguing if ultimately somewhat uneven production.

Æ Review – The Comedy of Errors

★★★☆☆

Cartoon capers cut right through to the heart of Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors in the Edinburgh Graduate Theatre Group’s twinkling new production up at the Church Hill Theatre until Saturday.
