Krapp’s Last Tape

Krapp’s Last Tape

★★★★☆  Authentic Krapp:

Wistful and careful, Arkle’s production of Krapp’s Last Tape brings out the humanity in Beckett’s masterpiece. Often seen as a forbidding play, there is nothing remotely inaccessible about this.

Bakersfield Mist

✭✭✩✩✩ Bakersfield missed:
Despite a great deal of care and two capable actors, Bakersfield Mist at the Royal Scots Club from Arkle Theatre Company never really gets off the ground.

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.

Rumours

✭✭✭✩✩ Frantic fun
Energetic, consistent and farcically daft, Arkle Theatre Company’s production of Rumours provides some diverting entertainment.

Review – MacPherson’s Rant

New musical hits the the high notes:

Bold, earthy and playing heavily on its roots, John Ward’s brand spanking new musical, MacPherson’s Rant, received its world premier in an amateur production up at the Church Hill Theatre last night.
