The Last Witch

The Last Witch

★★★★☆ Hard as rock:

There is a visceral compulsion to Pitlochry Festival Theatre and Firebrand’s The Last Witch at the Traverse. While apparently telling of a disappeared world, its evocations of fears, suspicions and power imbalances are worryingly contemporary.

Still Alice

Still Alice

★★★☆☆ Poignant:

Spamalot

★★★★☆    Hilarious:

The Mercury Theatre, Colchester’s touring version of Monty Python’s Spamalot for Selladoor Productions is consistently funny and may just be the best version of the show to have come to Edinburgh.
