World renowned immersive theatre company Punchdrunk makes its first ever foray to Scotland with a comprehensively startling piece of work, Small Wonders, as part of the Edinburgh International Children’s Festival.
The latest dementia play is Nessah Muthy’s Sundowning, currently showing at the Tristan Bates Theatre and based as it is, in part at least, on Muthy’s own family history, it is achingly done.

Iris Theatre’s Arabian Nights is a gloriously colourful adaptation of a well-known collection of tales, freshened up by Iris Theatre – the puppetry is a highlight of the storytelling.
Iris Theatre has made its first family show foray outside Covent Garden in years and, judging by initial critical reactions to its adaptation of Arabian Nights and transformation of historic Hoxton Hall, the risk has paid off. We’ve collected some of our favourite highlights from the reviews to date below – in short, people are going potty for the puppets!
It is in the telling of the tales, though, that Arabian Nights really comes alive. Iris Theatre uses a spectacular array of puppets, from a towering, glowing-eyed King Shahryar to birds, ships and sea monsters.
Arabian Nights is highly recommended for an evening of high-quality escapism and entertainment, presented by a talented and incredibly hard-working cast – with a little help from some seriously cool puppets.
Following this week’s opening of Arabian Nights, her adaptation of ancient Arabic folk tales One Thousand and One Nights, award-winning playwright Nessah Muthy premieres her new, contemporary play Sundowning, exploring the true cost of social care in the UK, with Kali Theatre. Time to get booking!
This was the first time I have visited Hoxton Hall, one of the last remaining music halls in London, and it seemed a very fitting venue for this economic production of Arabian Nights.
