Three recommended shows to see on Sunday 12 Aug…

Stick By Me | Dance Base | 12.30pm
From the Fringe’s children’s programme, this is “a slightly Kafkaesque take on a child’s world – spartan and bounded, yet brimming with possibilities”. It’s definitely recommended by our reviewer, who noted that “fun and friendship” are not only the key themes of the show, but “also what its audience will feel”.

The Flop | Summerhall | 4.55pm
Do try and check out this “light-hearted farce, focusing on the infamous ‘trial by congress’ of the Marquis de Langey” as part of the Fringe’s theatre programme over at Summerhall. “The cheerful destruction of the fourth wall is so tongue-in-cheek it’s a wonder they can get their lines out!” says our review. In conclusion: “Riotously funny, endlessly endearing and delightfully shambolic”.

Demi Lardner: I Love Skeleton | Assembly George Square Studios | 8.05pm (pictured)
And finally, today’s recommended show from the comedy programme. “Reminiscent of the oeuvre of fellow Aussies Aunty Donna, there are quick one-liners, musical interludes and utterly baffling sketches with no context – but that’s what makes them so funny”, reports our 4/5 review. “If you like your comedy weird and to induce so much laughter it feels like a work out, Lardner should be at the top of your list”.
