Three recommended shows to see on Friday 17 Aug…

Orlando | Assembly Roxy | 11.30am (pictured)
In this 5/5 theatre show “Rebecca Vaughan’s performance is never less than magnetic, she perfectly captures the nuances of the character”. Our review goes on: “At the gripping climax, tears were rolling down Vaughan’s face, mirrored in the eyes of much of the audience, this cynical reviewer among them”.

Tabarnak | Underbelly’s Circus Hub on The Meadows | 7.00pm
Another 5/5 show, this time from the Fringe’s circus programme. “The word ‘tabarnak’ is an expletive with religious connotations in the French-Canadian language”, our reviewer explains, “and the troupe play heavily on religious themes throughout”. Concluding: “It’s bold, naughty and a hell of a lot of fun”

Questing Time | Pleasance Courtyard | 11.00pm
Comedy now, and a concept show. “Every night, three guest comedians join host Paul Foxcroft on a ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ adventure, which we get to watch”, our reviewer explains. “Our audience – mostly gaming enthusiasts, granted – wept with laughter” they add.
