The World According to Bertie
A well performed, interestingly staged production
This article is from 2011.
Alexander McCall Smith’s prose is brought pretty niftily to the stage as part twee New Town soap opera, part mild satire. An 11-strong cast bring to vivid life the various dramas amidst the chinking tea cups of Edinburgh’s bourgeoisie, centring on the youngster of the title, an errant dog and some broken hearts. You might need to be a fan of the author to fully appreciate this, but it’s at least well performed and interestingly staged.
