It’s over for another year, and reviews are mixed, with everyone talking about Waves – “a aroduction that is genuinely doing something that has never been done before” according to this paper’s reviewer Patrick Lonergan – and Gatz, neither of which are shows on which I can offer an opinion. The best thing I saw was the Abbey’s production of Happy Days with Fiona Shaw, while the most hotly-anticipated show for me, The Year of Magical Thing, left me little more than lukewarm. Anyone out there bowled over by Black Watch? Dazzled by Dodgems? As the festival recedes into memory, is there anything that will stick?
