Three recommended shows to see on Saturday 12 Aug…

Show Me The Money | Bedlam Theatre | 3.30pm (pictured)
Here’s a fine show for the weekend. In a fast-paced hour  Paula Varjack “becomes the spokesperson for struggling twenty-first century artists everywhere, tackling the uncomfortable issue of money”, notes our reviewer, who adds: “The result isn’t a sob story, a lecture, or a dreary monologue, but instead a dynamic expression of ideas, created from both personal experience and over a year of research”.

Sign Of The Times | theSpace on North Bridge | 5.20pm
Saturday is your last chance to see this 4/5 theatre show. “The set – mostly crates and boxes – is cleverly utilised”, says our reviewer, while “the acting is warm and believable”. ‘Sign Of The Times’ is “an utterly charming story about communication and the many ways you can make yourself heard”.

Arbikie Pipers Game Of Drones | Merchant’s Hall | 6.15pm
It’s definitely worth taking time out to check this “upmarket, cabaret-style taster menu of Scottish musical culture with no cheese”, says our reviewer. “The highlight was Pipe Major Cammie Ritchie’s ‘Pibroch’ – a technically rigorous style seldom heard outside of piping competitions”.
