★★★★☆ Frightening

Jinnistan by Taqi Nazeer is the last in the current season at the Traverse of Oran Mor’s Play, Pie and a Pint. In many ways, they have saved the best till last.

PPP: Alföld

★★★☆☆ Intriguing

There is a commendable seriousness and ambition to Alföld, the latest Play, Pie and A Pint from Oran Mor at the Traverse, that makes it a worthwhile production, even if it is not entirely convincing.

PPP Made in China

★★★☆☆ Heartfelt

Made in China by Alice Clark, the latest Play, Pie and a Pint from Oran Mor at the Traverse, is a carefully written and excellently acted piece. Unfortunately it does not always satisfy as a drama.

PPP: Milkshake

PPP: Milkshake

★★★☆☆ Claustrophobic

The subject matter of Milkshake by Rob Drummond, the latest offering at the Traverse from Oran Mor’s Play, Pie and a Pint, is intriguingly topical. Despite being acted with real conviction, however, it never quite reaches the heights it promises.

PPP: I’m Dissolving My Love In A Bath Of Acid

★★★☆☆ Absurd

Oozing with comic brio, I’m Dissolving My Love In A Bath Of Acid at the Traverse is a wonderfully performed and energetic if ultimately superficial piece.
