Locker Room Talk

Locker Room Talk

★★★★☆ Troubling:

Deeply worrying and fascinatingly constructed, Locker Room Talk’s return to the Traverse is intriguing in theatrical terms and thoroughly unwelcome in what it reminds us about the world we inhabit.

PPP: Chic Murray: A Funny Place For A Window

★★★★☆ Fitting tribute:

As you might expect, there are plenty of laughs in Chic Murray: A Funny Place For A Window. What is less expected is a touching and beautifully acted love story.

Cinderella

Cinderella

★★★★☆ Still Sparkling:

This year’s King’s pantomime – Cinderella – is a more plot-driven and less reliant on effects than many of recent years. It also lacks some of the more interactive elements of panto, but for sheer fun and laughter it scores very highly indeed.

Uncle Varick

Uncle Varick

✭✭✩✩✩ Off-groove
They say the best man always wins. It isn’t true in real life and it certainly isn’t the case if you’re in an Anton Chekhov play. Not even in Uncle Varick, John Byrne’s updating of Uncle Vanya, at the King’s all week.
