✭✭✭✭✩ Cleanly put:
Solidly performed and cleverly directed, there is much to enjoy about Edinburgh University Shakespeare Company’s lucid production of Twelfth Night at Teviot House to Saturday.
★★★☆☆ Too cool:
Solidly acted but only sporadically funny, the Lyceum and the Citizens Theatre co-production of Hay Fever is entirely serviceable but all too forgettable.
✭✭✭✭✩ Cuts like mustard:
Fizzing with energy and wisecracking brio, the Citizens Theatre’s production of John Byrne’s Cuttin’ A Rug – at the King’s till Saturday – also has a careful and deep humanity.
Macbeth Kills The Duchess Open Auditions:
New Edinburgh-based amateur company BIGHEAD Theatre has put out a general casting call for its #EdFringe 2017 production of Macbeth Kills the Duchess.
★★★☆☆ Seen in preview:
Tense, Byzantine and thoroughly hilarious the EUTC’s production of Tom Stoppard’s breakthrough play Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, at the Bedlam to Saturday, is a properly entertaining affair.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, the UK National Theatre’s celebrated, award-winning adaptation of Mark Haddon’s novel, is back at the Festival Theatre until Saturday, and remains a beautifully staged, complex piece.
★★★★☆ Intense and involving:
Combining thought-provoking intelligence and the genuinely moving, Made In India at the Traverse is a very fine production.
Lucid and engaging, the Lyceum’s Scottish-set production of The Winter’s Tale has much to recommend it, even if it does not quite convince.
★★★☆☆ Not such a class act:
The Ruth Rendell murder tale A Judgement in Stone, at the King’s until Saturday, promises much but shoots itself in the foot with unbelievable characters and relationships.
Tightly paced and with a solidly constructed script from West Wing writer Aaron Sorkin, Beam Theatre’s A Few Good Men has plenty to offer, at the Assembly Roxy to Saturday.
