The Sideshow

The Sideshow

★★★☆☆ In the zone:

In the week when moves to regulate AirBnB failed and it was decided to curtain Princess Street Gardens off during commercial gigs, Active Inquiry’s The Sideshow feels remarkably relevant.

EH 16: Pyre

★★★☆☆     Unclear power:

EH 16: Pyre, Nevermore’s production in the downstairs studio at TheSpace Triplex is a determinedly political look at violence against women both in history and today. While at times diffuse, it has an undeniable power.

Paras over the Barras

Paras over the Barras

✭✭✩✩✩ Sketchy comedy
Delivering the toe-curling one-liners with a relatively straight face, Leitheatre’s reprise of Paras over the Barras is sketch show comedy shot through with nostalgia for the WW2 spirit.
