Church Hill Theatre
✭✭✭✭✩ Head and heart:
Informative, intelligent and packing a considerable emotional punch, Edinburgh People’s Theatre’ world premiere of A Guid Cause is subtle, complex and intriguing.
✭✭✭✩✩ Intoxicating talent:
Edinburgh Grand Opera’s version of L’elisir d’amore is a reduced arrangement, it’s cut in places and designed to suit the intimate Church Hill Theatre. That doesn’t mean that it cuts out any of the drama.
✭✭✭✭✩ Charming fun:
Snappy, engaging and funny, Edinburgh People’s Theatre’s production of J.B. Priestley’s When We Are Married mines a rich seam of humour in the timeless subjects of marital discord and snobbery.
✭✭✭✭✩ Pawn free:
Attention to theatrical detail brings out some gloriously complex and layered moments in Edinburgh Music Theatre’s production of Chess, at the Church Hill Theatre to Saturday.
✭✭✭✩✩ Satisfying thriller:
Short on genuine thrills but consistently enjoyable, the Edinburgh Makars’ production of Francis Durbridge’s A Touch of Danger is a somewhat contrived thriller made more interesting by considered performances.
✭✭✭✭✩ Vibrant and affecting:
Brassy, colourful and oozing vitality, Edinburgh University Footlight’s production of Rent matches its good intentions with a high level of achievement.
✭✭✭✩✩ Pure panto:
Big on audience participation and packed with boldly bad jokes, Edinburgh Peoples Theatre version of Dick Whittington at the Church Hill Theatre to Sunday 28, will delight fans of real pantomime.
✭✭✭✩✩ Poignant and promising
Full of local relevance and commemorating the 100th anniversary of the events it depicts, Farewell My Son has some moments of emotional power.
A fusion of high drama and earthiness, executed with precision and real emotion, Leitheatre’s Men Should Weep at the Church Hill Theatre is thoroughly satisfying.
✭✭✭✩✩ Bursting with potential:
There is a bouncy, big-hearted party production of Our House, the Madness jukebox musical, which is desperate to burst on to the stage of the Church Hill Theatre.
