Surprise Package

Surprise Package

★★★☆☆  Brightly cheerful:

Surprise Package, Saughtonhall Drama Group’s comedy at Saughtonhall United Reformed Church, is garishly old-fashioned and very silly, but put together with genuine care.

Nightmare

Nightmare

★★★☆☆    Oddly enjoyable:

A frankly implausible plot, that breaks several of the cardinal rules of crime fiction, is largely overcome by the committed performances in Saughtonhall Drama Group’s Nightmare.

Suddenly at Home – Review

Suddenly at Home – Review

✭✭✭✩✩ Subtle thrills

There are some excellent performances and a great deal to applaud in Saughtonhall Drama Group’s production of Francis Durbridge’s thriller Suddenly At Home; even if the end result is enjoyable rather than truly gripping, it still makes for a highly pleasurable evening.
