Catch 22

Catch 22

★★★★☆  Catchy:

As with so many great books, Catch-22 seems to have defied dramatic representation over the years. And while EGTG’s version at the Biscuit Factory does not necessarily kill off such an idea, is still an extremely impressive production.

Pace, Panto and Pathos promised at Biscuit Factory:

The Lark

The Lark

★★★★☆ Fiery:

There is fire in the belly of EGTG’s telling of The Lark – Jean Anouilh’s take on the story of Joan of Arc – at Bellfield in Portobello to Saturday.

Travels With My Aunt

Travels With My Aunt

★★★★☆ Inventive:

There is a beautiful comic rhythm to Arkle’s Travels With My Aunt at the Assembly Roxy, coupled with an almost boundless invention in its staging, that is very pleasing indeed.

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

★★★★☆ Resonant:
By turns bitingly sharp and believably messy, the Grads’ production of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf has real emotional power.

Wildest Dreams

Wildest Dreams

★★★★☆ Fascinating:
Intriguing, amusing and a little troubling, the Grads’ production of Alan Ayckbourn’s Wildest Dreams upstairs at the Assembly Roxy is extremely accomplished.

Titus Andronicus

Titus Andronicus

✭✭✭✩✩ There will be blood:
Bloody, nasty and noisy, the Grads’s production of Titus Andronicus at the Assembly Roxy has all of the ingredients of a memorable shocker but it is let down by some confused moments and a surprising politeness.

August: Osage County

August: Osage County

★★★☆☆ Brave attempt

Some excellent performances and high production values give The Grads’ production of August: Osage County interest and a degree of merit, but overall it can only be seen as a qualified success.
