Ane Servant o’ Twa Maisters

✭✭✭✭✩ Gloriously glaikit:
There’s huff, puff and havering a-plenty in Leitheatre’s take on Ane Servant o’ Twa Maisters Victor Carin’s adaptation and translation into Scots of Galdini’s classic farce.

Paras over the Barras

Paras over the Barras

✭✭✩✩✩ Sketchy comedy
Delivering the toe-curling one-liners with a relatively straight face, Leitheatre’s reprise of Paras over the Barras is sketch show comedy shot through with nostalgia for the WW2 spirit.
