It just wouldn’t be the Fringe without some questionable improv, and ‘Glitch’ is the unlucky winner of that dubious honour. After taking audience suggestions, off they went with ‘Gilbert Gorgonzola and the Itchy Kilt’, in which a green monster desperately wanted to retrieve his home from a kilt shop-owning Basil Brush. The problem was that the aforementioned itchiness of the kilt didn’t get much of a look in, and the puppeteers often had to dig themselves out of a hole. Making stuff up is great, but it’s got to feel a little bit like you know what you’re doing. Thank goodness for the puppets though: they’re splendid. Without them this would have made for very awkward viewing.

theSpace @ Surgeons Hall, until 20 Aug.
