POP-UP Duets (fragments of love)

POP-UP Duets (fragments of love)

✭✭✭✭✩ Wonderful:
POP-UP Duets, Janis Claxton’s series of nine dances on the theme of love at various locations in the National Museum in Chambers Street, is refreshing, beautiful and an excellent idea all round.

The Rose and Crown

The Rose and Crown

★★★☆☆ Mysterious:
Assiduously performed, and building up an air of mystery, The Rose and Crown has much about it that is striking.

Ronnie and Jonny: Friends Disunited

Ronnie and Jonny: Friends Disunited

★★☆☆☆ Disjointed
There is an interesting premise behind Ronnie and Jonny, the comic play from Steve Griffin and Keith Muddiman at 48 Below underneath the Phoenix in Broughton Street. However, its story is not sufficiently worked out, and it is only intermittently funny.

My Dog’s Got No Nose

My Dog’s Got No Nose

★★★☆☆ Old-fashioned
My Dog’s Got No Nose, presented by Phil Barnes for Arkle at the Royal Scots Club, is a well acted piece that manages to sustain considerable interest.

Lippy

Lippy

★★★☆☆ Ambitious:
By turns absurd, winsome and tragic, Theatre Paradok’s Lippy at theSpace on the Mile is a challenging, bleakly funny and ultimately impenetrable affair.

The Gingerbread Lady

Collateral Damage

Collateral Damage

★★★☆☆ Purposeful
Short but decidedly not sweet, Collateral Damage is sharp and spiky.

Eugene & Elvis

Eugene & Elvis

✭✭✭✭✩ Tender:
Affecting and emotional, Charles Hindley’s Eugene & Elvis at Silk is a rawly human musing on love, loss, family ties and the healing power of music.

The F Words

The F Words

★★☆☆☆ Lacking in fury:
There is a pleasing energy and political commitment to Pinched! Theatre’s feminist entertainment The F Words at Greenside, but as a show it fails to cohere.
