★★★★☆ Lairy

Packed with expletives and off-colour observations, Afterparty from New Celts Productions and F-Bomb Theatre at the theSpace’s Triplex theatre pulls no punches in its humorous but bitter-sweet story set in small town Scotland.

Saving Mr Ultimate

Saving Mr Ultimate

★★★☆☆ Believably Fragile

Saving Mr Ultimate, New Celts Production and Extra Arca’s tale of superheroes, grief and letting go, mixes the serious and the humorous effectively in creating a world that is both believable and ever-so-slightly superhuman.

Bull

Bull

★★★☆☆    Insufficiently horrid:

There is a nasty drive to Bull at theSpace on the Mile that goes a long way towards convincing. Mike Bartlett’s play about workplace bullying and the relentless, socially Darwinian corporate struggle is presented by New Celts and Cold Pizza in a recognisably Scottish setting.

In Her Corner

In Her Corner

★★★★☆ Hard-hitting:

In Her Corner, Tearin’ The Tartan and New Celts’ production at theSpace on the Mile, has a fresh, visceral quality and genuine drive. If there are a couple of false notes struck, it is nevertheless very impressive.

The 27 Club

The 27 Club

★★★☆☆  Decidedly downbeat:

The 27 Club, by Rebel Pigeon and New Celts at theSpace on the Mile, is an exploration of loss whose frustrations are balanced by some real insight.

Arrivals

Arrivals

★★★☆☆ Initially intriguing:

Arrivals, by Twelve Twelve and New Celts at theSpace on the Mile, is an odd beast. It is probably fair to describe Dougal Thomson’s script as two plays; one that works very well, and one that is less successful.

Level Up

Level Up

★★★★☆    Comic foreboding:

Level Up by Full Breakfast and New Celts at theSpace on the Mile is a believable portrait of social control made enjoyable by some warmly human performances and pin-sharp direction.

Breathing Corpses
