PPP: Ding-Dong (A Bit of a Farce)

★★☆☆☆ Slight
The first offering in the new series of A Play, A Pie and A Pint at the Traverse, has its heart in the right place and provides some laughs, but ultimately fails to convince either as a farce or as a more conventional comedy.

PPP Billy (The Days of Howling)

★★★★☆ Heart-rending:
With a whisper of snow and the haunting of an idea, the latest instalment of A Play, A Pie and a Pint spins in and out of the Traverse leaving a rare desolation in its wake.
