Crocodile Rock

Crocodile Rock

★★★☆☆ Strong performance

Crocodile Rock – at the Traverse for one performance only – is an affecting and well-judged piece of musical theatre, that only suffers from being stretched a little too far.

PPP: Daniel Getting Married

PPP: Daniel Getting Married

★★★☆☆ Fragmentary

Daniel Getting Married, the latest Play, Pie and a Pint from Oran Mor at the Traverse, goes ahead in extremely trying circumstances. The result is far more coherent than anyone has any right to expect.

Smile, Dundee Rep’s football-themed online offering, transfers to the screen to provide a satisfactory record of 2020’s successful play about the legendary Jim McLean.

Rapunzel – A Hairy Tale Adventure

Rapunzel – A Hairy Tale Adventure

★★★☆☆Festive fun:

The National Theatre of Scotland’s Rapunzel is full of enjoyment and impressive performances. Although it never quite stakes its claim as a compelling work in its own right, there is plenty to satisfy those missing their annual helping of seasonal entertainment.

Cuttin’ A Rug

Cuttin’ A Rug

✭✭✭✭✩ Cuts like mustard:
Fizzing with energy and wisecracking brio, the Citizens Theatre’s production of John Byrne’s Cuttin’ A Rug – at the King’s till Saturday – also has a careful and deep humanity.
