Reviews from the Edinburgh Festival
Tuesday, August 21, 2012
We've had two new productions playing at the Edinburgh Festival throughout August: Joe Douglas and Gareth Nicholls' EDUCATING RONNIE, and Luke Barnes' BOTTLENECK. Here's what the press had to say -
WINNER - Fringe First Award 2012
This is as thought-proviking as they come. The Independent, FOUR STARS.
Seldom does theatre possess the raw emotional power to reduce an entire room of strangers to stunned silence but HighTide Festival Theatre's magnificent staging achieves that feat with aplomb and sensitivity. Metro, FOUR STARS.
Luke Barnes, 24, captures the voice of Britain’s youth with wit and compassion. He emerges from this year’s Fringe as a red-hot writing talent to watch. The Independent, FOUR STARS.
Bottleneck is an outstanding play by young writer Luke Barnes. The Telegraph, FOUR STARS.
