Ludicrous MacKenzie

Ludicrous MacKenzie

★★★★☆ Crackling comedy:

There’s equal measures of biting wit and pacy dialogue in the downstairs room of New Town gastro pub Little White Pig, as writer-director Mark McDonnell launches his latest production, Ludicrous MacKenzie, and a new venue.

Cinderella

★★★★☆  Oh yes it is…. Terrific!

It’s Cinderella with a touch of The Greatest Showman at this year’s fun-filled Brunton-produced panto, running through the festive season until January.

A Game of Death and Chance

A Game of Death and Chance

★★★★☆  Eerily Interesting
Young critics scheme review
In A Game of Death and Chance, the National Trust for Scotland’s first ever Fringe show, four characters from the 17th century – and death himself – have occupied an old Edinburgh tenement to tell stories of Scotland’s past.

Bingo!

Bingo!

★★★☆☆    Energetic:

A musical about women at the bingo would seem a natural for a warm-hearted, reassuringly couthy comedy. Instead, Bingo! ends up as a much swearier, somewhat darker affair that provides entertainment but is let down by its structure.

Descent

Descent

★★★★☆ Passionate:
Powerful and shocking, Linda Duncan McLaughlin’s Descent at the Traverse’s lunchtime theatre season from A Play, A Pie and A Pint, grabs you with an intense passion that doesn’t ever hold back.

Bondagers

Bondagers

✭✭✭✭✩ Relevant revival:
There is a poetic, spooky resonance to the Lyceum’s revival of Sue Glover’s Bondagers that makes the production compelling.
