The Venetian Twins

The Venetian Twins

★★★★☆ Finest farce

Two years after they were meant to be bringing The Venetian Twins to Hill Street Theatre, Arkle Theatre Company’s production of Tony Cowie’s adaptation of the play finally made it to the theatre on Wednesday night. It was well worth the wait.

The Taming of the Shrew

The Taming of the Shrew

★★★☆☆ Uneven updating:

Arkle’s take on The Taming of the Shrew is a largely successful attempt to make relevant one of Shakespeare’s plays that is most troubling to modern audiences.

Travels With My Aunt

Travels With My Aunt

★★★★☆ Inventive:

There is a beautiful comic rhythm to Arkle’s Travels With My Aunt at the Assembly Roxy, coupled with an almost boundless invention in its staging, that is very pleasing indeed.
