PPP: Margaret Saves Scotland

PPP: Margaret Saves Scotland

★★☆☆☆   Sugary:

Margaret Saves Scotland, the latest offering in the Play, A Pie and A Pint season, marks the return of Val McDermid to the stage. Anyone expecting a taut and bloody crime thriller, however, should be warned that this is a low-key piece, wistful and almost wilfully slight.
