Bursting with emotion and tuneful energy, the return to the Traverse of What Girls Are Made Of is a thing of wonder.
Metatheatre rules okay in Kieran Hurley’s account of ethical tangles in his Edinburgh tale of two cities in Mouthpiece at the Soho Theatre.
There is much to admire about the staging of Mouthpiece at the Traverse, and even more about how it is acted. In the end, however, the play tantalises rather than delivers.
Mythic emotion: Meet Me At Dawn, a new play by Zinnie Harris presented by the EIF at the Traverse, is a sombre but beautifully open-hearted depiction of love, loss and regret.
Well performed: Strong performances and notably high production values distinguish Grain In The Blood at Edinburgh’s Traverse Theatre, but an initially chilling ambience is not sustained.
The premiere of Ross Dunsmore’s Milk at the Traverse Theatre is well acted and carefully staged. However, it never overcomes an unsatisfactory construction.
Ross Dunsmore’s Milk heads Traverse Edfringe programme:
Ten world premiers will feature in the fringe programme of the Traverse this year. Ten plays which, as I write this, don’t even exist yet.
Theatre creatives top Festival Theatre speakers:
Theatre makers and creatives top the speakers at three free events being held at the Festival Theatre to mark International Women’s Day, Tuesday 8 March 2016.
“Two winter’s tales”: Tracks of the Winter Bear, the Traverse’s pre-Christmas show which plays up until Christmas Eve, is an odd beast.
There is a strongly beating human heart behind the Traverse Theatre Company’s Swallow. The cleverly staged production from a largely female team has a spiky exterior hiding a warm and resonant core.
