PPP: Daniel Getting Married

PPP: Daniel Getting Married

★★★☆☆ Fragmentary

Daniel Getting Married, the latest Play, Pie and a Pint from Oran Mor at the Traverse, goes ahead in extremely trying circumstances. The result is far more coherent than anyone has any right to expect.

WILF

WILF

★★★☆☆ Encouragingly filthy

There is a pleasingly unruly feel to James Ley’s new play WILF, this year’s seasonably unseasonal offering from the Traverse. Full of heart, not to mention dialogue that would have given the Lord Chamberlain palpitations, it overcomes structural difficulties to produce a successful whole.

A Man’s A Man

A Man’s A Man

★★★★☆    Moving and fun:

Robert Burns’ poetry has an inherent melodic quality of its own and staging a full-length musical on his life and work seems like a natural progression.
