The House of Bernarda Alba

The House of Bernarda Alba

★★★☆☆ Direct:
Intense and mannered, Leitheatre’s production of Lorca’s The House of Bernarda Alba at the Festival Theatre Studio strikes a chord with contemporary events.

Dolly West’s Kitchen

★★★★★ Feisty fighting:
Dolly West’s Kitchen tells the tale of war: war between countries, war within families and the personal wars everyone fights. Leitheatre’s production at the Studio is feisty, fun and it certainly grips and entertains.

Review – Ira Levin’s Deathtrap

★★★☆☆ A twist of meta-dunnit:

Cutting like a honed knife, Ira Levin’s murder thriller is as intense and satisfyingly tricky as it ever was when it was written in the late seventies.

Review – Whose Life Is It Anyway?

★★☆☆☆

SURPRISINGLY hilarious in its opening scenes, Leitheatre’s take on Brain Clark’s right-to-die drama succeeds in finding an emotional core, but is still swamped by dialogue which spends too long rehearsing the arguments.
