How to Choose?

How to Choose?

✭✭✭✭✩ Intriguingly informative
The question of the week in Triggerstuff’s clever and illuminating production, at the Traverse for one performance only, is not what side to take: whether to be Yes or No. The question is one of how you get to that decision.

Prophecy

Prophecy

✭✭✩✩✩ Future potential
Raw around the edges and somewhat uneven in its storytelling, new musical Prophecy which has its world premiere run at St Brides all this week, nevertheless succeeds in bringing its hero, the Brahan Seer, to life.

In Time o’ Strife

In Time o’ Strife

✭✭✭✭✩ Raw power
Visceral and uncomfortable truths are laid bare in the National Theatre of Scotland’s production of In Time O’ Strife. Despite the odd false step in the staging, this is an emotionally charged and thoroughly involving production.

The Really Big Diamond

The Really Big Diamond

✭✭✭✩✩ Flawed gem
Deft, daft and likeable, The Really Big Diamond is an enjoyable show from Theatre Paradok which successfully overcomes some rather obvious flaws.
