It’s been exactly one month since I last put pen to paper (or more accurately fingertip to keyboard) in order to write a review. Having done so fairly consistently for a period of about 30 months I thought it high time I took a deliberate sabbatical in order to recharge the batteries. That plus a lengthy holiday abroad mean that it’s been quite a while since I sat in a venue or even in an armchair to soak up some theatrical magic. So, what to begin with? One thing I missed in its entirety and in both senses of the word was the Edinburgh Festival. But as in recent times more generally, there are productions which played there and are now accessible online, so it was to a virtual north of the border venue that I ventured courtesy of the Scenesaver platform.
