Lyceum

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.

The Caucasian Chalk Circle

The Caucasian Chalk Circle

✭✭✭✭✩ Energy and focus:
Exhilarating and involving, The Caucasian Chalk Circle makes great use of the resources available to the Lyceum. There is an uncontrolled feeling to much of the production that is paradoxically a tribute to the careful craft and intelligence on display.

Faith Healer

Faith Healer

✭✭✭✭✩ Truth or lies?:
There is an evasive, poetic feel to Brian Friel’s Faith Healer, running at the Lyceum until Saturday February 7, 2015.

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

Bondagers

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