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.

The Belle’s Stratagem

The Belle’s Stratagem

★★★★☆ Exemplary comedy:

Vivacity, wit and downright stupidity abound in The Belle’s Stratagem at the Lyceum, a production of verve and cheek that produces as much laughter as anything seen on the Edinburgh stage in recent years.

The Crucible

The Crucible

★★★☆☆ Clear focus:
Exceptional clarity characterises the Lyceum’s production of The Crucible, whose focus on small details reaps rewards but does so at the expense of dramatic impact.

Fat Alice

Fat Alice

✭✭✭✭✩ Skin tight:
There’s a twitching unease about Peter and Moira as they sit down to celebrate their 10th anniversary in Fat Alice, Alison Carr’s juicily-observed two-hander which is this week’s lunchtime theatre session at the Traverse.
