Royal Lyceum Theatre

Mrs Puntila and Her Man Matti

Mrs Puntila and Her Man Matti

★★☆☆☆    Flat:

Mrs Puntila and Her Man Matti at the Lyceum is full of energy and has no shortage of comic potential. However, the end result is puzzlingly uninvolving.

An Edinburgh Christmas Carol

★★★☆☆  Comedy overshadows pathos:

Solaris

★★★★☆ Questioning intelligence:

Dealing with troubling questions about human interaction, the Lyceum’s adaptation of Solaris is – like all the best science fiction – not really about alien planets but about our own world.
