A review of The Guid Sisters
Reviewer: Johan Wilkinson
I had the pleasure of seeing this show 24 years ago in Toronto, and again this week in Edinburgh. I love the combination of Québécois and Glaswegian in situation and expression. The plight of these women crosses the miles and years to speak just as true today.
What a delight to have such a talented cast of women to keep us laughing and touch our hearts. Ode to the Bingo was one of my favorite moments.
I hope such a strong and unique Scottish production can go beyond the audiences of Edinburgh and Glascow to tour other cities and indeed other countries. Just as these women pocket the stamps, it would be a shame to keep this little treasure to yourselves!
