Bonnie Fechters

★★★☆☆  Gallus
Bonnie Fechters – Songs of Hope and Resistance – a one-woman show devised, directed and performed by Morna Burdon at the Scottish Storytelling Centre – has a friendly and inclusive feel that at times belies the bite of its content.

As the Crow Flies

As the Crow Flies

★★★★☆ Ground-breaking:
Anarchic, clever and hinting of ritual, Greg Sinclair’s experiment with the theatrical performance of improvised live music with young people, As the Crow Flies, is a strangely calming experience.

Indie as F*ck

Indie as F*ck

✭✭✭✭✩ Swear it’s good:
Pinched! Theatre’s story of a teenage indie band’s dissolution seeks to combine comedy, theatre and indie rock, and does so with great success.

That Deadly Noir Magic

That Deadly Noir Magic

✭✭✭✩✩ More deadly than magic:
Dani Iannarelli’s love letter to film noir and jazz combines film clips, music and a noirish plot. The outcome is too confused to be a success, although parts of the performance are very enjoyable indeed.

A Requiem For Edward Snowden

A Requiem For Edward Snowden

✭✭✭✩✩ Mourning becomes electronica:
A Requiem For Edward Snowden, the ‘digital opera’ at Stockbridge Church, has an eerie contemporaneity, treating political concerns in a way that speaks more of sorrow than of anger.

Review – Susan Boyle

Review – Susan Boyle

The temperature in the Festival Theatre was sky high and climbing in anticipation of Susan Boyle’s appearance – at last – in her own show on her home turf. The pre-show buzz was completely off the scale.
