The Auld Alliance

✭✭✭✭✩ Entente Cordiale
Warmly funny and showing an unusual level of thought and care, The Auld Alliance from Edinburgh People’s Theatre is a multi-faceted production where the good hugely outweighs the bad.

The Fairmer Wants A Wife

✭✭✭✭✩ Warm and funny:
There is nothing remotely groundbreaking about EPT’s The Fairmer Wants A Wife at Mayfield Church. What is provided is a thoroughly enjoyable, very well presented piece of Scottish comedy.

The Sorcerer’s Tale

✭✭✭✭✩ Good alchemy
Pawky, earthy and of consistent quality, Edinburgh People’s Theatre’s revival of The Sorcerer’s Tale is the ideal show for anyone wanting to see something very Scottish and very funny.

Review – Ne’er the Twain

Review – Ne’er the Twain

✭✭✭✩✩ Ever-bubbling:
Couthie comedy is given full and adequate reign in the Edinburgh People’s Theatre fast-moving production of Ne’er The Twain – set in a tenement flat on the Leith-Edinburgh border in October 1919.
