Three To See 2015: ThreeWeeks Approved Theatre

By | Published on Friday 7 August 2015


ThreeWeeks Co-Editor Caro Moses with three more theatre shows for you to see, all from companies and performers who have won the ThreeWeeks seal of approval at Fringes past.

Wil Greenway – For The Ground That Grew Me
‘For The Ground That Grew Me’ is the latest show from Wil Greenway, who induced the following praise from us, for his 2014 piece ‘Vincent Goes Splat’: “This is simple, gentle storytelling at its best: There’s nothing but one man talking on stage, so the whole piece relies on the strength of the writing and acting and both are impeccable. It’s sad and bittersweet, hilarious and heartbreaking, a beautifully crafted, wistful piece”.
Underbelly Med Quad, from 6 until 30 Aug

Captain Morgan 1 and 2
“Combine the humour of ‘Monty Python’ with the entire cast of every ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ film and compress the lot into a two-man show and you would have something like ‘Sands Of Time’”, opined our reviewer, after seeing Captain Morgan number 1. “It’s an epic, dizzyingly hilarious tale”, he continued. “A spectacular bit of fun”, he concluded. All good reasons why you should see ‘Sands Of Time’, and of course, part 2, ‘The Sea Of Souls’.
Pleasance Dome, from 5 until 30 Aug (part 1 on odd days, part 2 on events)

Fable (pictured)
We’ve given the Flanagan Collective so many good reviews that I am not sure I am prepared to trawl through them all looking for quotations. But if I did I would find loads of superlatives and words like ‘effective’, ‘beautiful’ and ‘life-changing’. This time they’re here with ‘Fable’, “a tale of freedom, immortality and planting trees for those who come after us. A show wound from spoken word, storytelling, soaring live music and good, honest heart and soul”. Sounds promising.
Summerhall, from 5 until 30
