By | Published on Wednesday 16 August 2017

Three recommended shows to see on Thursday 17 Aug…

Wild Bore | Traverse Theatre | 10.00am
“A joyous riposte to some dazzlingly inane criticism, interrogating the relationship between artist and critic in the patriarchal framework of contemporary theatre”, with Zoe Coombs Marr, Ursula Martinez and Adrienne Truscott. Highly recommended.

Hear Me Raw | Underbelly George Square Gardens | 2.40pm
Another 5/5 show, this is “a one-woman whirlwind tour into the world of clean eating and control”. Says our review: “Superbly written and fantastically acted, ‘Hear Me Raw’ tiptoes the line between laugh out loud funny and pure raw emotion”.

Mental | Assembly Roxy | 5.05pm (pictured)
“Kane Power’s mother Kim has bipolar disorder”, explains our reviewer, “and in ‘Mental’ he talks about her and her illness – symptoms, treatments, possible causes – using keyboards, loop pedals and recordings to create mesmerising soundscapes that replicate the feeling of being out of control of your own brain”.
