BOUNCERS – Edinburgh

In Plays, Regional theatre, Reviews, Scotland by Thom DibdinLeave a Comment

It’s a brilliant, inventive and perceptive deconstruction of the Saturday night out. Originally performed at the Fringe in 1977 as a two hander it first appeared as a four-hander in the early Eighties. But this is the nineties remix, reworked again from its Yorkshire origins so that it has a solid Edinburgh feel to it.

JANE EYRE – Touring

In Plays, Regional theatre, Reviews, Scotland, Touring by Thom DibdinLeave a Comment

Resolutely theatrical and visually arresting, the version of Jane Eyre at the Festival Theatre retains the flavour of that well-loved book while succeeding admirably on its own terms. This adaptation of Charlotte Bronte’s novel was originally devised for the Bristol Old Vic and is now touring in partnership with the National Theatre of Great Britain.
