Reckless

Reckless

★★☆☆☆ Manic:

Despite inventive direction and committed performances, The Grads struggle to navigate the tonal quagmire of Craig Lucas’ bizarre Christmas caper, Reckless.

The Ladykillers

★★★★☆ Dead funny:
Assured comedy performances and ambitious staging combine to make a success of The Ladykillers for the Grads, at the Assembly Roxy to Saturday.

Grads in a comedy killing

Grads in a comedy killing

It’s time for the Ladykillers:
When Graham Linehan’s comedy The Ladykillers toured to the King’s in 2012, the set was so convoluted and clever that Æ pictured its design model as the review illustration.

The Witch of Edmonton

The Witch of Edmonton

✭✭✩✩✩ Tragically complex:
Based on a Jacobean play written by William Rowley, Thomas Dekker and John Ford in 1621, the Edinburgh Graduate Theatre Group’s production of The Witch of Edmonton is a curious and intense tragi-comedy that confuses as much as it entertains.

August: Osage County

August: Osage County

✭✭✭✩✩ Brave attempt

Some excellent performances and high production values give The Grads’ production of August: Osage County interest and a degree of merit, but overall it can only be seen as a qualified success.
