Three recommended shows to see on Tuesday 22 Aug…

£¥€$ (LIES) | Upper Church @ Summerhall | 6.30pm & 8.30pm
Another very fine Fringe production from Ontroerend Goed. “Grouped with strangers, you begin by playing simple gambling games, but things grow in complexity”, our reviewer explains. “Money stacks up, bonds fly from table to table, and it seems as though the good times and profits can never end”. Intrigued? Go experience it for yourself.

The Gardener | Summerhall | 2.30pm & 4.30pm
This show is inspired by Cumbernauld Theatre’s community arts work with older people and their wish to express ideas about grief, love and death. “Perhaps this is how it so perfectly achieves its moving honesty”, reckons our reviewer. “It’ll first warm your heart, then touch it, and ultimately break it”.

Yianni Agisilaou: Pockets Of Equality | Banshee Labyrinth | 2.00pm (pictured)
In his latest show, ThreeWeeks Editors’ Award winner Yianni Agisilaou addresses the inequalities and paradoxes around gender and sexuality. “There’s always a risk that a man discussing feminism could feel patronising”, observes our reviewer, “but not here: there’s no condescension or mansplaining”.
