The Glasgow Citizens' Theatre have already launched us into their new autumn season with a magnificent production by Philip Prowse of Oscar
Wilde's An Ideal Husband (see Review J
and Listings). They follow it up with a new production of Roll Hochhuth's The Representative (translated from the German by Robert David MacDonald) which, challenging the Pope's silence on the Holocaust during the war, caused great controversy when it was first staged (runs Fri 3 Oct—Sat 25 Oct) and then with a production of Hidden Fires (3 new translation by Robert David MacDonald olthe French Romantic Poet Alfred de Musset’s Le Chandelier) from 31 Oct-22 Nov.
New season's greetings also to the Edinburgh’s Royal Lyceum, who start up with Dario Fo’s Accidental Death of an Anarchist, move on to a new play by Andrew Dallmeyer, The Grand Edinburgh Fire Balloon about Edinburgh’s James Tytler, the first man in Britain to fly (10 Oct-1 Nov) and then to a new production of a play by what might be termed an established playwright: Macbeth by Shakespeare (7—29 Nov). Further classics follow in the new year in the shape of Moliere’s Hypochondriac, Chekhov’s Three Sisters and Noel Coward's Hay Fever.
Amongst those companies hosted by the King's Edinbugh this autumn are Himawari Theatre Group from Japan (25 Sept), Anthony Ouayle’s Compass Theatre Co in Dandy Dick (19 Sept—4 Oct), Peking Opera (18 and 19 Oct) and the New Vic Theatre Coin The Last ol the Mohicans.
