The Enemy

★★★☆☆ Fussy

The Enemy, Kieran Hurley’s updating of Ibsen for The National Theatre of Scotland at the King’s this week, is an uneven proposition. Much of the production is timely and compelling, and the acting is excellent, but other elements cohere less convincingly.

Assessment

Assessment

★★★☆☆    Chillingly relevant:
Assessment is a chilling exploration of the future of pensions in a time of austerity, from Shows on a Shoestring at the Rose Theatre for the full fringe.
