Plaza Suite

Plaza Suite

★★★☆☆ Erratic comedy:

The Edinburgh Makars’ production of Neil Simon’s Plaza Suite has considerable comic appeal, even if it takes some time to materialise.

Oedipus & Hands Across the Sea

Oedipus & Hands Across the Sea

★★★★☆   Double Dose:

Congratulations to which ever member of the Edinburgh Makars thought of staging Sophocles’ bloody Oedipus in a seemingly incongruous double bill with a Noel Coward one-act farce. Truth is, the incongruity works.

Good Things

Good Things

★★★☆☆ Heartfelt:
There are plenty of Good Things in the Makars’ production of Liz Lochhead’s play of that name, in a production that is solid if not spectacular.
