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.

Weekend Breaks

Weekend Breaks

✭✭✭✩✩ Carefully honed
Arkle Theatre Company’s accomplished production of John Godber’s Weekend Breaks probably gives more care and attention to the material than it deserves.
