Stellar Quines

Bingo!

Bingo!

★★★☆☆    Energetic:

A musical about women at the bingo would seem a natural for a warm-hearted, reassuringly couthy comedy. Instead, Bingo! ends up as a much swearier, somewhat darker affair that provides entertainment but is let down by its structure.

The Lover

The Lover

★★★☆☆    Cool:

There is a bittersweet delicacy to The Lover, the Lyceum’s collaboration with Stellar Quines and Scottish Dance Theatre, that cannot quite compensate for a lack of emotional fire.

The Last Queen of Scotland

The Last Queen of Scotland

★★★☆☆  Urgent:
There is undeniable promise in The Last Queen of Scotland. It is told in a voice largely absent from the stage, and presents a story which seems to have been largely forgotten, but remains desperately contemporary in so many ways.

The Air The Carries The Weight

The Air The Carries The Weight

★★★☆☆ Haunting:
Cleverly framed and delicately staged on what could well be John and Jeanine Byrne’s most evocative and cleverly constructed set yet, there is an aching beauty to Stellar Quines’ latest production.
