Locker Room Talk

Locker Room Talk

★★★★☆ Troubling:

Deeply worrying and fascinatingly constructed, Locker Room Talk’s return to the Traverse is intriguing in theatrical terms and thoroughly unwelcome in what it reminds us about the world we inhabit.

Mouthpiece

★★★☆☆ Political emotion:

There is much to admire about the staging of Mouthpiece at the Traverse, and even more about how it is acted. In the end, however, the play tantalises rather than delivers.

Meet Me at Dawn

Meet Me at Dawn

★★★★☆   Mythic emotion:
