Jamie and the Unicorn online

★★★★☆ Streaming good fun

The brand new pantomime Jamie and the Unicorn at the Gaiety Theatre in Ayr, hits all the big pantomime tropes – and hits them bang on – with a live performance that makes a smooth transfer to online viewing.

The Last Witch

The Last Witch

★★★★☆ Hard as rock:

There is a visceral compulsion to Pitlochry Festival Theatre and Firebrand’s The Last Witch at the Traverse. While apparently telling of a disappeared world, its evocations of fears, suspicions and power imbalances are worryingly contemporary.

The Match Box

The Match Box

★★★☆☆ Slow burn:
Matches are resolutely old-school and capable of being taken for granted, but are just as capable of flaring into life as they always were. Which is pretty much the case with Firebrand’s The Match Box, at the Traverse until Saturday.
