Three recommended shows to see on Friday 11 Aug…

Giants: For An Hour | Pleasance Courtyard | 4.30pm
Highly recommended sketch comedy with musical infusions, says our reviewer of these two guys: “Possessing a great rapport and the ability to riff easily with their audience, this pair are nearing the level of comedy duo The Pin”.

Prom Kween | Underbelly Cowgate | 8.35pm (pictured)
Looking for something a bit musical? “Full of pithy jokes, on-point pop culture references and superb surprises”, says our reviewer, this is “a life-affirming musical that fuses all your favourite high school movies with ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’”. And what more could you want from a Fringe show?

Bacchae | theSpace @ Surgeon’s Hall | 10.15pm
“Flying Pig Theatre makes the narrative accessible while still engaging with the lustrous depth of the characters and preserving the play’s identity”, says our 5/5 review of this production. “Through hypnotic musicality and a cohesive dynamism, Flying Pig makes watching a classic not just enriching but really enjoyable”. Go see.
