Matthew Lenton

Tabula Rasa

Tabula Rasa

★★☆☆☆  Disjointed:

Tabula Rasa at the Traverse is a collaboration between Scottish Ensemble and Vanishing Point that contains moments of heartfelt beauty but never coheres.

Charlie Sonata

Charlie Sonata

★★★☆☆ Emotionally messy:
Time, change, dependence and human frailty are explored with emotion in the world premiere of Charlie Sonata at the Lyceum.

The Destroyed Room

The Destroyed Room

★★★★☆ A lens, darkly:
It is impossible to tell where the theatre starts and ends in Matthew Lenton’s brilliant, dense and lethally of-the-moment The Destroyed Room, at the Traverse to Saturday before touring to London “and beyond”.

SpectreTown

SpectreTown

✭✭✭✭✩ Diffuse and troubling:
SpectreTown, Stoirm Òg’s co-production with Cumbernauld Theatre, lacks focus and seems to be flying off in different directions at the same time. This leads to a production that is almost wilfully confusing, but has an undeniable power.

The Beautiful Cosmos of Ivor Cutler – Review

✭✭✭✭✩ Slightly imperfect

Infectious and entertaining, The Beautiful Cosmos of Ivor Cutler is an engaging production whose flaws do not detract from its essential likeability.
