Rapture Theatre

The Red Lion

The Red Lion

★★★★★  Back of the net:

Rapture Theatre shoots, and scores, in a soccer drama by Patrick Marber that even non-sports fans will love.

A Streetcar Named Desire

A Streetcar Named Desire

★★☆☆☆      Underwhelming:

Worthy but earthbound, Rapture Theatre’s touring production of A Streetcar Named Desire at the King’s never really convinces.

Democracy

Democracy

★★☆☆☆ Static:
Much in Rapture’s touring production of Democracy at the King’s could speak to audiences in 2016 Scotland. However, it is buried in a slow, seemingly interminable production.

The Last Yankee

The Last Yankee

★★★☆☆ Simmering emotion
Rapture Theatre’s touring production of Arthur Miller’s The Last Yankee has an emotional depth and psychological realism that help the production to overcome occasional false steps.

Uncle Varick

Uncle Varick

✭✭✩✩✩ Off-groove
They say the best man always wins. It isn’t true in real life and it certainly isn’t the case if you’re in an Anton Chekhov play. Not even in Uncle Varick, John Byrne’s updating of Uncle Vanya, at the King’s all week.
