Prescription For Murder

Prescription For Murder

★★★☆☆ Pleasing:

Prescription For Murder, from the Edinburgh Makars at the Church Hill Theatre, is one of those odd English crime dramas that provide more reassurance than apprehension.

Oedipus & Hands Across the Sea

Oedipus & Hands Across the Sea

★★★★☆   Double Dose:

Congratulations to which ever member of the Edinburgh Makars thought of staging Sophocles’ bloody Oedipus in a seemingly incongruous double bill with a Noel Coward one-act farce. Truth is, the incongruity works.

Good Things

Good Things

★★★☆☆ Heartfelt:
There are plenty of Good Things in the Makars’ production of Liz Lochhead’s play of that name, in a production that is solid if not spectacular.

Relatively Speaking

Relatively Speaking

✭✭✭✩✩ Relatively successful
Slick, humorous and effective, the Edinburgh Makars’ production of Alan Ayckbourn’s Relatively Speaking can be counted as a success even if it never quite manages to locate the darker streak that characterises his work.

Review – My Three Angels

Review – My Three Angels

Slight and somewhat worthy, Sam and Bella Spewack’s 1950s comedy is given a muted but entertaining production by the Edinburgh Makars at the St Bride’s Centre this week.

Æ Review – Agatha Christie’s The Hollow

Æ Review – Agatha Christie’s The Hollow

★★☆☆☆

There is nothing sleepy about the Hollow to which the Angkatells have retired in this country house weekend murder mystery from the Makars, which is at Adam House until Saturday.
