Entertainment to keep out the cold

Cavalcade Philip Prowse directs Noel Coward’s epic journey through the first 30 years of our century with genuine panache. Elegantly staged and superbly performed, this

_ production will be remembered well

into the coming century, even given some dodgy ethics in the subtext. Glasgow: Citizens’ Theatre, until Sat 78 Dec.

Blood On The Thistle Kenny Miller’s adaptation of Douglas Skelton’s chilling book might make you feel unsafe in your bed for weeks, but don’t let that discourage you. This compelling piece of theatre gets close up to its audience in the studio space and makes them feel every grisly moment. Glasgow: Citizen ’5 Theatre, until Sat 18 Dec.

Peter Pan Stuart Paterson's version of J.M. Barrie's great Scottish play is not, he insists, just for the kids, and we're inclined to agree. There's magic, mystery and adventure in this tale, but also plenty of food for thought. Edinburgh: Royal Lyceum Theatre, Fri 3 Dec-Sat 8 Jan.

The Sleeping Beauty Tchaikovsky’s classic ballet performed by the National Ballet Of Latvia very much in the style its composer intended. Edinburgh: Festival Theatre, Tue l4-Sat 18 Dec.
