"We have a small seven-strong professional ensemble that rarely misses a trick, in a version of Aladdin that starts off on the right foot.
In no time at all, Aladdin's wicked uncle Abanazer has whisked him away to the cave of delights.
They're helped on their way by two Genial Spirits, in Robert Read's chubby genie of the lamp, and Isabella Jarrett's beautiful and glamorous genie of the ring.
No opportunity for fun is missed, from opening number to closing walk-down and the whole Brunton team deserve the warmest Christmas applause, for one of the least pretentious and most enjoyable pantos of the year."

"Creepiest of all is the soliloquy delivered by Isabella Jarrett, as the mother of the girl who is being tortured by the management. In all of the Fringe, Jarrett’s was the performance that stuck with me — her character was strangely sweet and exceptionally heartless."
Sunday Times Magazine
Fire Exit in association with Citizens Theatre
A late-night gothic Victorian promenade for small audiences in a Masonic lodge, by award-winning 'theatrical maverick' (Financial Times) and 'site-specific genius' (Scotsman). A haunting, darkly comic tale of yet another chorus girl burning to death. Meet Flora McIvor and witness her meteoric rise to power in a corrupt music hall. Bloodthirsty coup or red velvet revolution? The management is getting away with murder... 'Haunting ... magnificent ... stunning' ***** (Scotsman); 'Ravishing ... chilling ... exquisite' **** (Guardian); 'Tremendous ... vivid' **** (Herald); 'Style, suspense, panache' ***** (Metro); 'Compelling ... brilliant ... cunningly seductive' **** (Financial Times). www.MadeInScotland2010.com

"There's no lack of radical thinking in the story behind Frederic Mohr's BARRY.... Jarrett conveys it with great charm and skill."
"Isabella Jarrett deserves plaudits for a brilliantly sustained performance"
Isabella also appeared with Communicado Theatre Company in
Adapted and directed by Gerry Mulgrew
from the novel by Robin Jenkins.
Following the critical acclaim of Communicado's adaptation of Jenkins's The Cone Gatherers, Fergus Lamont promises once again to bring to life the work of one of Scotland's finest writers. In a story rife with scathing Scots humour, Jenkins introduces us to Fergus, a man at odds with his own identity. Despite a childhood in the slums, he learns of his nobel connections and is determined to join the aristocracy, claiming his rightful place in Scottish society. This journey of self discovery takes Fergus to the trenches in World War I, an Edinburgh country home and a weather beaten outpost in the Outer Hebrides before returning to his birthplace. In this adaptation of Robin Jenkins's most searching exploration of the modern psyche, Communicado creates not just an unforgetable character but an image of Scotland and what it is to be Scots.
