Glory on Earth

Glory on Earth

★★★☆☆ Accomplished:
Extreme care has been lavished on the Lyceum’s Glory on Earth. It has a clarity to its storytelling and performances, backed up by some excellent staging, but never engages the heart or mind as fully as it promises.

The Winter’s Tale

The Winter’s Tale

★★★☆☆ Layered:
Lucid and engaging, the Lyceum’s Scottish-set production of The Winter’s Tale has much to recommend it, even if it does not quite convince.

The Lyceum’s Alice is in Wonderland:
When Jess Peet steps out onto the Lyceum stage as the title character of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, she takes on the mantle of one of the most iconic figures of Oxford literature.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

★★★★☆ Wonderful:
While not specifically Christmassy, Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland at the Lyceum proves an ideal fit for the festive season. Hugely colourful, funny, and fascinating, it is thoroughly involving and a little disorienting.

Jumpy

Jumpy

★★★☆☆ Genuine:
There is a generosity and sincerity to Jumpy at the Lyceum, allied to some impressive acting, even if the end result is not as overwhelming as it might be.
