Leitheatre

The Crucible

The Crucible

★★☆☆☆ Half-baked:

Leitheatre has made a bold and audacious stroke in its production of The Crucible, using a contemporary setting for Arthur Miller’s great allegory for the anti-communist hysteria in 1950s America.

The Amorous Ambassador

★★★☆☆  A good stab:
Peppered with comic potential, Leitheatre’s production of The Amorous Ambassador clearly has a talented team behind it at the Inverleith St Serf’s Church Centre for the first fortnight of the fringe.

Ane Servant o’ Twa Maisters
