Rebus: Long Shadows is a bit of a mixed bag, lacking in intensity and with a plot which is overly complicated, but the production is suitably atmospheric and engaging to watch unfold.
Despite boasting the talents of two of Scotland’s greatest writers and a more than adequate cast, Rebus: Long Shadows is nowhere near as compelling as the stage debut of Edinburgh’s most celebrated fictional policeman should be.
There is a generosity and sincerity to Jumpy at Edinburgh’s Lyceum Theatre, allied to some impressive acting, even if the end result is not as overwhelming as it might be.

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.
