The best theare and dance

All My Sons Arthur Miller’s early classic is given a high quality revival at the Lyceum under the direction of John Dove. The story of an ostensibly ordinary American bourgeois family with a secret connected to the tragic loss of their son, this piece is part family drama and part political commentary. Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh, until Sat 10 Feb. Read review

The Unconquered Torben Betts’ new play, freely adapted from a story by Somerset Maugham, sees a conflict between a rebellious young woman and a mercenary soldier of an invading ‘free world’ turn violent. With broad sweeps of humour through its anti-naturalistic action, this piece should present challenging but engrossing entertainment. Byre Theatre, St Andrews, Wed 14-Sat 17 Feb, then touring.

The Bevellers The Citizens’ Theatre presents Jeremy Raison’s production of Glasgow working class life, which centres on macho conflicts on the shop floor at a glass factory. Citizens’ Theatre, Glasgow, Wed 7 Feb-Sat 8 Mar. Read preview
