Much Ado About Nothing

Much Ado About Nothing

✭✭✭✩✩ Mixed success:
Arkle’s Much Ado About Nothing at the Royal Scots Club overcomes a less than well thought-out central concept to deliver a solid, enjoyable production.

When We Are Married

✭✭✭✭✩ Charming fun:
Snappy, engaging and funny, Edinburgh People’s Theatre’s production of J.B. Priestley’s When We Are Married mines a rich seam of humour in the timeless subjects of marital discord and snobbery.

Review – Ira Levin’s Deathtrap

★★★☆☆ A twist of meta-dunnit:
