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.

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.

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.
