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.

Rapunzel – A Hairy Tale Adventure

Rapunzel – A Hairy Tale Adventure

★★★☆☆Festive fun:

The National Theatre of Scotland’s Rapunzel is full of enjoyment and impressive performances. Although it never quite stakes its claim as a compelling work in its own right, there is plenty to satisfy those missing their annual helping of seasonal entertainment.

Ghost Light provides a poignant reminder of what we are all missing in this fallow year of live performance in Edinburgh during August.
