Three to see at the Edinburgh Festival tomorrow…

TW:Talks Live with Susan Calman | theSpace @ Symposium Hall | 10.30am
It’s the third of our special podcast recordings tomorrow to mark 21 years of ThreeWeeks at the Edinburgh Festival, and this one with the brilliant Susan Calman. You’re all invited to sit in on the recording to hear the full unedited conversation. Grab free tickets from thisweektalks.com.

Mercury Fur | C cubed | 1.00pm (pictured)
Next up, let’s recommend one of the shows that gets itself one of our big 5/5 picture boxes in the Week Two issue of ThreeWeeks. “If blood, guts and gangs are your thing, this is the play for you” says our reviewer. “The intimate but powerful performance leaves audiences in utter disgust, distress and discomfort” they add. Sold yet?

John Robertson: The Dark Room | Underbelly Cowgate | 8.30pm
Another 5/5 in the current issue, and not only because our reviewer left the show with a big inflatable banana. “Loud, raucous and brilliantly daft, this is unrelenting fun that everyone will have a chance to take part in” says she of Robertson’s Dark Room.
