Pitlochry Festival Theatre and the Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh in association with Naked Productions have announced the casts for its three forthcoming Sound Stage plays.
Tony Roper’s play about women in a 1950s public washhouse on Hogmanay has proved a bona fide modern classic, and is now on a 30th anniversary tour produced by Neil Laidlaw and Jason Haigh-Ellery.
Extreme care has been lavished on the Lyceum’s Glory on Earth. It has a clarity to its storytelling and performances, backed up by some excellent staging, but never engages the heart or mind as fully as it promises.
Lucid and engaging, the Lyceum’s Scottish-set production of The Winter’s Tale has much to recommend it, even if it does not quite convince.
