DENTON —The Texas Woman’s University Drama Program’s original production of The Panther’s Scream and Other Texas Tales has received a rave review from the Scotland newspaper The Herald during the play’s performance at the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

The Herald’s Carmody Wilson wrote, “...engaging and sustainably entertaining is the lively and good-natured show from Texas Woman’s University. Developed and improvised by the cast, based on traditional storytelling methods, the show is a simple exercise in telling a story well.”

The review concludes with, “The music is beautifully performed and the cast are a likable, earnest bunch.”

The Panther’s Scream and Other Texas Tales, which premiered at TWU in November 2010, is an original work based on folk stories and Southwestern legends that celebrate Texas’ heritage. TWU Drama is performing the play through Aug. 13 during the Fringe Festival at the Spaces at Northbridge – a theater on the royal mile, in the heart of Edinburgh’s most visible and energetic district.

The play is the second TWU Drama production in three years performed at the celebrated Fringe Festival.
