Highlights of the fortnight
Same Time Next Year David Robb directs himself in this two-hander with spouse Briony McRoberts. Cheerfully unpretentious and entertaining, the play tells the story of a 25-year illicit relationship between an accountant and an upwardly-mobile working-class woman. Played against the background of the US from 1950 to 1975, the piece also reflects upon a turbulent period of American history. Edinburgh: Royal Lyceum, Fri 30 Jun-Sat 29 Jul.
Desert Rain Blast Theory present a piece which is neither fully theatre nor installation. Involving technology and interaction, it's liable to reformulate your thinking about its subject matter, the Gulf War. A fascinating experiment in performance. Glasgow: Tramway, Thu 29 Jun-Sat 8 Jul.
