Erewhon

★★★☆☆  Genial technology:

Promising a mixture of old and new technology and material, Erewhon at Summerhall fails to ignite fully, but remains an engaging and amiable production.

Our Fathers

Our Fathers

★★★☆☆ Charming:

Our Fathers at the Traverse has a great deal of talent behind it. The end result is amusing and entertaining but ultimately somewhat too frothy.

★★★★★ Dancin’:

Magnetic North and the Red Note Ensemble’s collaboration in David Shrigley’s “sort of opera” is a feast of fun with moments of utter genius. If you love the absurd or bizarre then see it!
