Tracks of the Winter Bear

Tracks of the Winter Bear

★★★☆☆ Two winter’s tales:

One In A Million

One In A Million

★★☆☆☆ Well-meaning:
One in a Million, the latest A Play, A Pie and A Pint production from Oran Mór at the Traverse is a disappointingly insubstantial affair.

140 Million Miles

★★★☆☆ Nicely done:
It’s never easy to get a handle on Adam Peck’s slightly obscure new offering, 140 Million Miles, at the Traverse all week as part of the A Play A Pie and A Pint season of lunchtime theatre.

The Straw Chair

✭✭✭✭✩ Ragged glory:
There is a warm and thoughtful core to The Straw Chair at the Traverse that sometimes seems in danger of being overpowered by a particularly remarkable performance.

Fat Alice

✭✭✭✭✩ Skin tight:
There’s a twitching unease about Peter and Moira as they sit down to celebrate their 10th anniversary in Fat Alice, Alison Carr’s juicily-observed two-hander which is this week’s lunchtime theatre session at the Traverse.
