There is little doubt that a tightened-up version of Tennis Elbow would be better, but the sheer pleasure in language displayed here already goes a very long way.
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.
Visually and verbally intoxicating, Cyrano de Bergerac at the Lyceum, Edinburgh is a riotous, joyous expression of the human spirit.
First performed in 1775, The Rivals is still standing the test of time, it seems, and never more evident than with this production at the glorious Bristol Old Vic. The eloquent dialogue (written by Richard Brinsley Sheridan) mingled with a few cheeky modern slants, made for an extremely entertaining and wondrous evening at the theatre.
✭✭✭✭✩ The unstageable, staged:
A world of hugely entertaining possibilities is on display in Lanark. The co-production between the Citizens Theatre and the International Festival has all of the excitement and weight of a capital-letter Theatre Event.
✭✭✭✭✩ 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.
