Three recommended shows to see on Saturday 18 Aug…

Daughter | Canada Hub @ King’s Hall | 12.30pm (pictured)
This 5/5 theatre show “is a brutal look at how misogyny masquerades in today’s society”, our reviewer reports, adding “it is terrifying”. The review goes on: “The powerful and honest portrayals of love, violence and toxic masculinity make this an absorbing and exceptional piece of theatre”. 

We Are | Just Festival at St John’s | 9.00pm
A 5/5 show from the music programme. “This strong, all-women African drums and vocal group from Los Angeles were inspirational and inclusive”, reckons our reviewer. “Beautiful, powerful voices telling stories about other women making extraordinary, world-changing decisions”.

Darren Harriott: Visceral | Pleasance Courtyard | 9.30pm
And no today’s recommended comedy show. “Dancing neatly between the light, the dark and the heavy, Harriott also does some good straight joking”, notes our review. “This is a gag-rich, insightful and at times soulful comic hour”.
