Theatre Paradok

Pomona

Pomona

★★★☆☆ Mixed bag:

Flirting with darkness, Theatre Paradok’s Pomona – at Summerhall until Saturday – is well performed, but ultimately more staid than it first appears.

The Nether

The Nether

★★★☆☆ Morally contentious
Problematic, simply because of its subject matter, The Nether is given a solid and suitably powerful production by student company Paradok Theatre at Checkpoint to Saturday.

Dark Tales

Dark Tales

★★☆☆☆ Jumpy
Haunting raw material and a fairly straightforward telling from Theatre Paradok give a good account of this pair of classic Victorian ghost stories, at the Banshee Labyrinth until Thursday.

Lippy

Lippy

★★★☆☆ Ambitious:
By turns absurd, winsome and tragic, Theatre Paradok’s Lippy at theSpace on the Mile is a challenging, bleakly funny and ultimately impenetrable affair.

The Hothouse

The Hothouse

★★★☆☆ Sweltering:
The black humour of the absurd runs through Theatre Paradok’s welcome staging of Pinter’s The Hothouse, at the Assembly Roxy to Saturday.

To Breathe

To Breathe

★★★☆☆ Explorative:
There’s something unnerving about Theatre Paradok’s To Breathe, at Summerhall until Saturday. Its a feeling which begins pre-show and pervades right through the Edinburgh University company’s hour-long production.

The Really Big Diamond

The Really Big Diamond

✭✭✭✩✩ Flawed gem
Deft, daft and likeable, The Really Big Diamond is an enjoyable show from Theatre Paradok which successfully overcomes some rather obvious flaws.
