The Crucible

The Crucible

★★☆☆☆ Half-baked:

Leitheatre has made a bold and audacious stroke in its production of The Crucible, using a contemporary setting for Arthur Miller’s great allegory for the anti-communist hysteria in 1950s America.

★★★☆☆ Judicious:

★★★★☆ Imaginative:

The Fairmer Wants A Wife

✭✭✭✭✩ Warm and funny:
There is nothing remotely groundbreaking about EPT’s The Fairmer Wants A Wife at Mayfield Church. What is provided is a thoroughly enjoyable, very well presented piece of Scottish comedy.
