The Weir

★★★★☆ Quietly affecting:
Superbly judged performances and a clever, organic approach to staging make for an effectively spooky time in the Lyceum’s production of Conor McPherson’s The Weir.

Summer on Stage 2015

Summer on Stage 2015

Mancub: ✭✭✭✩✩ Complex
The Children: ✭✭✭✭✩ Stylish
Children are at the heart of both the drama and the performance of this year’s Summer on Stage double bill, but the Lyceum Youth Theatre are anything but childish in their delivery.

The Driver’s Seat

The Driver’s Seat

✭✭✭✩✩ Fury and fear:
The National Theatre of Scotland’s adaptation of Muriel Spark’s The Driver’s Seat has a righteous fury, combined with a drive born out of cleverly harnessed technology and a tight ensemble.

The Venetian Twins

The Venetian Twins

✭✭✭✭✩ Double the fun:
Broad, finely honed and never afraid of a corny joke, The Venetian Twins is a huge, rip-roaring thing. It is all rather silly, but is none the worse for that.

Hedda Gabler

Hedda Gabler

✭✭✭✩✩ Mixed success:
Although considered and intelligent in its conception, the Lyceum’s production of Henrik Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler is too uneven to convince entirely.
