The BFG

The BFG

✭✭✭✭✩ Whizzpopping fun:
The Lyceum is transformed into the magical world of the BFG where “all dreams is beginning”, through the imagination of Roald Dahl, adaptation of David Wood and direction of Andrew Panton.

Bondagers

✭✭✭✭✩ Relevant revival:
There is a poetic, spooky resonance to the Lyceum’s revival of Sue Glover’s Bondagers that makes the production compelling.

Kill Johnny Glendenning

Kill Johnny Glendenning

✭✭✭✩✩ Blood with no guts
Vigorous and energetic, the Lyceum’s world premiere of Kill Johnny Glendenning provides lashings of blood and humour in a production which is well performed and directed, but in the end is less than the sum of its parts.

Pressure

Pressure

✭✭✭✭✩ Atmospheric Pressure

Involving, emotional and well-crafted, David Haig’s new play about the background to D-Day provides a successful finale to the current Lyceum season.

Union – Review

Union – Review

✭✭✭✩✩ In rude health

Bawdy, hugely ambitious and almost wilfully uneven, the Lyceum’s world premiere of Union should be applauded for its intentions even if the results are not wholly successful.
