The return of A Play, A Pie and A Pint to the Traverse with Morna Pearson’s Celestial Body, which runs to Saturday, is certainly something to celebrate.

Still

★★★☆☆ Tender

Still at the Traverse is in many ways a tough watch, with themes of death and loss offset by excellent performances and perceptive writing.
