Electrolyte is a special piece of theatre that fuses spoken word with all the key components of a gig – a great way to keep the mental health conversation going.
An hour of quintessential absurdist comedy, made into an experience thanks to terrific music and lighting design – and topped off with brilliantly convincing performances.
A show about knowing (or not knowing) who you are, with a focus on growing up mixed race – Koko Brown is an engaging & captivating performer.
Ladykiller is a compelling one-woman show that explores the imbalance between the sexes for a deadly purpose – Hannah McClean is breathtaking.
Simon Evans and David Aula have written and are performing in not one but two shows back to back at the Fringe: The Vanishing Man and The Extinction Event.
A keenly observed dark comedy that is incredibly relevant to our technology-dependent lives – an hour of brilliant new writing that you simply must see.
When You Fall Down: The Buster Keaton Story is enchanting yet informative, full of slapstick, beautiful music, and a dash of pathos – a gargantuan effort by writer/performer James Dangerfield.
A dangerously addictive hour of comedy, bringing you silliness of Tudor proportions – an absolute must-see laugh-fest!
As Lucy (Emma Bentley) grows up, she seems a somewhat unusual kid – keeps her head down in school, a little bit lonely but able to stand up for herself. What Goes On In Front Of Closed Doors highlights that it’s not all drug addicts or those in abusive relationships who end up on the streets.

Yesterday wasn’t just a miserably wet Bank Holiday Monday in London (and most of the rest of England): north of the border, it was also the conclusion of the world’s largest arts festival, the glorious Edinburgh Fringe (and its parent, the more auspicious and less chaotic Edinburgh International Festival). So Edinburgh was on my mind […]

Junior review by Cora Dibdin
The Last of the Dragons is set in a kingdom where there’s a tradition that on a princess’s 16th birthday she gets married, but first she has to get tied to a rock and then a dragon comes and takes her away but a prince comes and saves her by killing the dragon. (You don’t see the dragons being killed.)
Michael Flanders and Donald Swann were songwriters and cabaret artistes who debuted in the 1950s and attracted the same kind of polite following as Joyce Grenfell for whom they also wrote some material. As a sort of Kit and the Widow of the post-war parlour song, their pairing is almost perfect: Tim FitzHigham is a […]

Has appearance on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ gone to their heads? Have the self-styled ‘Kings of this genre’ lost their crown? Oxford University’s Out of the Blue have been an Edinburgh fixture since 2005 and their a capella stylings of everything from 80s synthpop to Lady Gaga a solid “must-see” demanding ever larger venues.
