National Theatre of Scotland draws near

All praise to the wit of Paul Iles at the Blackpool Grand who's launching a National Theatre of Variety a matter of days before the launch of the National Theatre of Scotland. Whether his variety artistes will be able to upstage Scottish theatre's ambitious Home project remains to be seen. He's got stiff competition in the form of ten shows performed up and down Scotland in unconventional theatre spaces. I've written about four of them for the Hi-Arts journal.
