Top Fringe Picks: Day 3

 Third day and Edinburgh feels like home!

Morning flyerers are finding their spots, the gentle eyebrow raise of recognition giving us a heartwarming feeling as we begin the day of work in our tired states.  The familiarity is rewarding; a breath of fresh air before the chaos ensues.

And we’re still wondering where to begin with what shows to see… The ever extending lists of certainty dissolve in piles of vague preferences.  The one thing we do know is that we have to be at Captured every day (12.40pm @ Underbelly Cowgate).  It’s a good thing that we all love this show – it’s certainly not a chore yet! So, here we go, our next bunch of recommendations to try and ease your options:

A Man Standing – Théâtre de L’Ancre 5.25pm @ Summerhall


Stage Manager Shanice says: “A play that looks at a man and the error of his youth and how a life sentence can not only change your perspective but your focus for life.”

3 words to sum up: Honest, Inspiring & Moving

Epic Love & Pop Music  – In association with Showroom 4.20pm @ Pleasance Dome


Actor Gabby says: “An honest & heart-breaking story about love & friendship.  A great connection between the characters easily portrayed both innocence and vulnerability.” 

3 words to sum up: Punchy, Endearing & Likable

Driftwood – Casus 3.30pm @ Assembly George Square Gardens


Director Suzy says: “The second show I’ve seen from Casus and they never cease to amaze with their insanely stunning acrobatics.  The way the group work together delivers gorgeous chemistry and beautiful connections. You won’t be disappointed”

3 words to sum up: Heart-stopping, Breath-taking & Jaw-dropping.  

The Noise Next Door’s Comedy Lock-In 10.50pm @ Pleasance Courtyard


Director Suzy says: “From base humour to incredibly intelligent puns, these guys really know how to make you laugh.  Bringing in different comedians every night & wowing you with their improvisation skills, you’ll be wanting to go back time & time again.”

3 words to sum up: Hilarious, Hilarious & Hilarious

Tell Me Anything – On The Run with Show & Tell 5.45pm @ Summerhall


Writer Jenna says: “An incredibly engaging & skillful story weaver perfectly encapsulates the feeling of your first love & the problems that arise when that feeling collides with illness.”

3 words to sum up: Important, Engaging & Personal
