Hay Fever

Hay Fever

★★★☆☆ Lightly hilarious

Every family has their foibles, but the Bliss family are next-level eccentric in Noel Coward’s delicious comedy Hay Fever – brought to the Assembly Roxy by EGTG for four performances only.

Bytesize Theatre

Bytesize Theatre

★★★☆☆ Welcome

The lack of time to plan for live theatre at this year’s Fringe has not deterred the Edinburgh Graduate Theatre Group. Bytesize Theatre is a collection of three new plays presented on the online Fringe Player. The three pieces are not all equally impressive, but each has intriguing elements.

#TakeASeat

★★★★★  Necessary mementos:

Theatre, as we knew it, might not have made a return to the Lyceum just yet, but there is enough drama in the #TakeASeat exhibition, viewable in the foyer until October 3, to engage as performance.

Sunset

Sunset

★★★★☆    Moving portrayal of a marriage:

This one woman show at theSpace @ Niddry Street until Saturday only, is a thoroughly recognisable portrait of an older woman reflecting on the emotional roller coaster that constitutes her long marriage.

Casanova Dreaming

Casanova Dreaming

★★☆☆☆ Overly complex:

Arbery Production’s Casanova Dreaming at TheSpace on Niddry Street is a breathless dash through the 18th century that tries to cram enough material for several hours into 50 minutes.
