31st March 2000 - The Herald
AT two-and-a-half years in the making, Wallace, presented by Stow College, is, to say the least, an epic to match its more famous movie counterpart. Stephen Langston's score was, in particular, quite splendid, eschewing traditional notions of ''Scottishness'' (not a bagpipe in earshot, hurrah!) in favour of something more akin to a movie soundtrack. Lush string and sensitive brass arrangements created sections that were reminiscent of the work of acclaimed French composer Georges de la Rue.... Overall the production was well played, the cast comfortable on an impressive set designed by Langston and all looking opulent in sumptuous, specially designed costumes by Maggie McMennamin.
Stuart Brand played Wallace with enough pzazz to keep the character on the right side of being believable and displayed a showmanship which shone through. With his magnificent voice he dominated the proceedings and is surely a name we will hear more of in the future.
