The Steamie

The Steamie

★★★★☆   Far from mince:

There is genuine warmth as well as hilarity in The Steamie, at the King’s until Saturday.

Rhinoceros

Rhinoceros

★★★★☆  Wild:
The EIF’s Rhinoceros is a thoroughly contemporary take on a modern classic, combining knockabout comedy with a deep consideration of human society.

The Venetian Twins

The Venetian Twins

✭✭✭✭✩ Double the fun:
Broad, finely honed and never afraid of a corny joke, The Venetian Twins is a huge, rip-roaring thing. It is all rather silly, but is none the worse for that.

Kill Johnny Glendenning

Kill Johnny Glendenning

✭✭✭✩✩ Blood with no guts
Vigorous and energetic, the Lyceum’s world premiere of Kill Johnny Glendenning provides lashings of blood and humour in a production which is well performed and directed, but in the end is less than the sum of its parts.
