The Scarecrows’ Wedding

✭✭✭✩✩ Quite funny
Junior review by Cora Dibdin:
I enjoyed this play but found it very hard to review. The play is from the book by Julia Donaldson. It is about two scarecrows called Betty O’Barley and Harry O’Hay getting married.

The Last of the Dragons is set in a kingdom where there’s a tradition that on a princess’s 16th birthday she gets married, but first she has to get tied to a rock and then a dragon comes and takes her away but a prince comes and saves her by killing the dragon.

Baba Yaga (And The Girl With The Kind Heart)

Baba Yaga (And The Girl With The Kind Heart)

✭✭✭✭✩ Spine tingling:
Magnificently malevolent when it needs to be, Theatre Alba’s take on the great Russian folk tale Baba Yaga thrills and frightens in equal measure as it promenades round Dr Neil’s Garden in Duddingston.
