Three recommended shows to see on Sunday 19 Aug…

The Gruffalo, The Witch And The Warthog | Underbelly George Square | 11.00am (pictured)
The first of two recommended children’s shows for today. “This is the stadium rock of kids’ shows”, our reviewer reckons, “a beloved legend busting out classics, while doing a bit of newer stuff in between”. You get “six lively tales in short order”.

Denim: The Denim Juniors | Assembly George Square Gardens | 4.35pm
A 5/5 musical kids show now. “In this wildly fun and dazzling hour, Denim perform well-known pop songs with fabulous tweaks”, we report. “This is a wonderfully life-affirming, spectacular show, full of friendship and laughter. I am so pleased this kind of inclusive, glittery performance exists”. Today is your last chance to see this show at this year’s Fringe.

Meek | Traverse Theatre | 4.00pm
And now into the theatre programme. “‘Meek’ explores our obsession with the internet and how desperate we are for ‘likes’ from faceless followers”, our review explains. “This is a compelling, atmospheric production from Headlong, with energetic performances from all three actors, which poses complex questions about loyalty, betrayal and sacrifice”.
