The Deil’s Awa’

The Deil’s Awa’

★★★★☆ Devilishly funny

Edinburgh People’s Theatre attack The Deil’s Awa’ at Mayfield Salisbury Church with such humour and panache that the result is nigh on irresistible.

A Tomb With A View

A Tomb With A View

★★★☆☆ Ridiculous

Cheerfully ludicrous and staged with considerable craft, Edinburgh People’s Theatre’s production of A Tomb With A View is thoroughly entertaining.

Men Should Weep

Men Should Weep

★★★★☆ Timely

Seemingly endlessly delayed by Covid, Edinburgh People’s Theatre’s production of Men Should Weep finally takes to the Church Hill stage. The end result is carefully observed and has considerable emotional power.

Aladdin

Aladdin

★★★★☆    Magical:

Aladdin is Edinburgh People’s Theatre’s 67th consecutive pantomime but there is nothing tired about it. There may be baggy elements, but these are more than overcome by attention to comic detail, awareness of what really makes a panto and sheer good fun.

Second Honeymoon

Second Honeymoon

★★★★☆    Pacy nostalgia:

Second Honeymoon at Mayfield Salisbury Church extends Edinburgh People’s Theatre’s record-breaking Fringe run with some style. Unashamedly nostalgic and with bags of comic bravado, it purrs like a well-oiled machine.

★★★★☆ Satisfying:

There is a warmth and sense of tradition to Jack and the Beanstalk at the Church Hill Theatre that makes it an extremely attractive proposition.

EPT’s windy bottom

EPT’s windy bottom

Has beans not has-beens in Panto land:

Edinburgh People’s Theatre doesn’t give a hill of beans for modern turns on panto tradition, just the usual bag of magic ones, as the company prepares the Church Hill Theatre for Jack and the Beanstalk, its 66th consecutive pantomime.
