Distance Remaining

Distance Remaining

★★★☆☆ Assured

There are some wonderful, and wonderfully human, performances in Distance Remaining. The three separate sections of the production ultimately fail to gel, but there is more than enough to sustain the interest.

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.

Traverse 3:

The Traverse are replicating their Fringe Breakfast Plays with streams from their new online-only Traverse 3, and the first two offerings – Contemporary Political Ethics (Or, How to Cheat) by Jamie Cowan and Rabbit Catcher by Rebecca Martin – both have much to recommend them.

How Not To Drown

How Not To Drown

★★★☆☆     Human drama:

How Not To Drown at the Traverse is an involving and humane piece of theatre, detailing stories that need to be heard. However – in theatrical terms – problems of structuring cause its impact to be diminished.
