Dracula: Mina’s Reckoning

Dracula: Mina’s Reckoning

★★★★☆ Angry

You can’t keep a good vampire down for long, and the story of Dracula keeps coming back to the stage, with its depictions of transgressive behaviour making it a constant candidate for reinvention.

Concerned Others

Concerned Others

★★★★☆ Profound impact

Tortoise in a Nutshell’s new verbatim documentary, Concerned Others, at Summerhall all Fringe, uses puppets and animation rather than actors to bring its script to life.

The Enemy

The Enemy

★★★☆☆ Fussy

The Enemy, Kieran Hurley’s updating of Ibsen for The National Theatre of Scotland at the King’s this week, is an uneven proposition. Much of the production is timely and compelling, and the acting is excellent, but other elements cohere less convincingly.
