The Venetian Twins

★★★★☆ Finest farce

Two years after they were meant to be bringing The Venetian Twins to Hill Street Theatre, Arkle Theatre Company’s production of Tony Cowie’s adaptation of the play finally made it to the theatre on Wednesday night. It was well worth the wait.

My Dog’s Got No Nose

★★★☆☆ Old-fashioned
My Dog’s Got No Nose, presented by Phil Barnes for Arkle at the Royal Scots Club, is a well acted piece that manages to sustain considerable interest.

Anorak of Fire

✭✭✭✩✩ Charmingly geeky
There’s a wry humanity in Anorak of Fire, as well as some jokes that are starting to show their age.
