The Front Page

The Front Page

★★★★☆ Extreme energy:

There is more nervous energy in Edinburg Theatre Arts’ The Front Page at St Ninian’s Hall than in five average Fringe productions, and the result is very pleasing.

Improbable Fiction

Improbable Fiction

★★★★☆  Varieties of fun:
Edinburgh Theatre Arts are not the only group presenting Alan Ayckbourn this year. While other productions may be more high-profile, it is unlikely they will be much more fun than this production of Improbable Fiction at St Ninian’s.

★★★☆☆ Ambitious:
Hugely ambitious, Edinburgh Theatre Arts’ production of Lucy Prebble’s Enron at St Ninian’s is uneven but always intriguing, and gets a lot right.
