Bringing the Mearns to the Stage

New adaptation of Scotland’s favourite book for Leitheatre:

The week that marks the centenary of the end of the 1914-18 war seems a most appropriate one for Leitheatre to bring a new adaptation of Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s Sunset Song to the stage.

The Homecoming

The Homecoming

★★★☆☆ Reverent:

Fidelity to the text characterises Leitheatre’s The Homecoming at the Festival Theatre Studio. The result is a well-crafted production that could probably do with showing a little less respect.

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

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.

Bouncers

Bouncers

★★★★☆ Well observed:
Crisp in its delivery and twisting in its purpose, Leitheatre’s production of John Godber’s Bouncers hits many of its marks in a strong production at the Festival Theatre Studio
