Cocoa and Cuddles

Cocoa and Cuddles

★★☆☆☆ Curiously disconnected:

Saughtonhall Drama Club opens its 70th anniversary year with Cocoa and Cuddles by Jane Lockyer Willis, a strange and worryingly disconnected piece of theatre.

PPP: Margaret Saves Scotland

PPP: Margaret Saves Scotland

★★☆☆☆   Sugary:

Margaret Saves Scotland, the latest offering in the Play, A Pie and A Pint season, marks the return of Val McDermid to the stage. Anyone expecting a taut and bloody crime thriller, however, should be warned that this is a low-key piece, wistful and almost wilfully slight.

Calamity Jane

★★★★☆   Giddy up for a giddy show:

Oh, the Deadwood stage is a-rolling on over the plains… and stopping at the Brunton Theatre for MAMA’s production of Calamity Jane.

★★★☆☆  Geektastic fun:

Grease meets Glee, as the Forth Children’s Theatre show what it’s like to be an American teenager in this fun and energetic performance of Loserville.

PPP: Rachel’s Cousins

PPP: Rachel’s Cousins

★★★★☆    Clever comedy:

Upbeat and often very funny indeed, Rachel’s Cousins, this week’s A Play, A Pie and A Pint lunchtime theatre at the Traverse, doesn’t allow the prospect of cancer to get in its way.

Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

★★★☆☆   Puzzling:

The seminal story of a 19th century physician who uses a potion to unlock the darkness within gets a puzzling treatment as the Touring Consortium Theatre Company’s production reaches the King’s.

Crazy for You Youth Review 3

Crazy for You Youth Review 3

★★★☆☆   A Gersh-winning performance:

Carried by a multitalented cast and top-notch comedic timing, the Watermill Theatre’s Production of Crazy for You delivers plenty of laughs for the whole family, but lacks emotional intelligence.
