CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.
Casanova Dreaming – theSpace @ Niddry St.
3 Arbery Productions
This is an attractive looking production. Extravagant costume and an antique bed set the scene effectively as young Giacomo Casanova is visited by an old man who shows him his future. Many lovers from the past and future come to visit him “The greatest master is passion , who makes slaves of us all “ is one of their quotes - sadly what this production lacks is passion.
Patrick Bergamo is suitably attractive as Casanova, but is given little to do beyond appear amazed. As his older self, Creighton King was too laid back for me, he needed to inject pace to keep our interest. Mike Brownsell delineated his several characters effectively, but it would have been more exciting to have seen the duel or his scary doctor's treatments rather than have reports. The women were well played, but I found little to differentiate one from another apart from their costume. I wish Martin Foreman had given them more to say and do.
Although he claims all events are based on Casanova's autobiography, the playwright could have given us a more lively, less wordy account of this notorious character's life.

15th Jul 21 :: User Review: We saw Jane Eyre tonight, Thursday 15th July, at the Blue Orange theatre. It was fantastic, highly recommended. An ingenious synopsis adaptation, brilliantly acted and told. Good luck to the cast for Edinburgh fringe and Isle if Wight, you deserve great success with this - well done and thank you for a great evening out! :) 5

20th Jun 21 :: User Review: As an adult I appreciated the quality of acting and the resourcefulness- however it was , for a local summer performance alittle over thought.
Given it probably attracted a family audience due to its content , it could be considered as too deep in its message - although a great twist to engage all ages - a bit more of a fun story associated closer to it roots would have been more appreciated and enjoyed , in the main .
Having said that we thoroughly enjoyed the entire performance and totally support the Storyhouse - The Actors were believable and enchanting - the set Very well considered and intimate - a perfect afternoon in the Park - Many Thanks to all for such a remarkable achievement ! 4
