Neighbourhood Watch

Neighbourhood Watch

★★★☆☆  Stately:
There is a comic and political bite to the Edinburgh Makars’ Neighbourhood Watch that gives it as much impact as other Alan Ayckbourn productions of twice the length and many times the budget.

Collateral Damage

Collateral Damage

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

The Game’s Afoot

The Game’s Afoot

✭✭✭✩✩ Elementary but entertaining:
There is solid, well-crafted entertainment in The Edinburgh Makars’ production of The Game’s Afoot or Holmes For The Holidays. Genuine thrills and spills are in short supply, but great pains have been taken to make a rewarding whole.

Review – My Three Angels

Review – My Three Angels

Slight and somewhat worthy, Sam and Bella Spewack’s 1950s comedy is given a muted but entertaining production by the Edinburgh Makars at the St Bride’s Centre this week.
