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.

Union – Review

Union – Review

✭✭✭✩✩ In rude health

Bawdy, hugely ambitious and almost wilfully uneven, the Lyceum’s world premiere of Union should be applauded for its intentions even if the results are not wholly successful.

Review – Long Day’s Journey Into Night

✭✭✭✭✩ Intensely emotional
Intense, disquieting and ultimately rewarding, the Lyceum’s production of Eugene O’Neill’s Long Day’s Journey into Night is worthy of very high praise.

Theatre Review – Romeo and Juliet

✭✭✭✭✩ Astonishingly vivid:
Simple, clear and astonishingly vivid, Tony Cownie has taken Shakespeare’s most performed play and, with one brilliant little twist, created a fresh and timely production.
